A question about probiotics and coat care.
Looking for opinions on Fast Track. My BO (who is also my mom!) is giving my 16 year old (and the other horses too) a supplement called Fast Track, which is a pro biotic. Does anyone have any experiences with this product? It seems alright so far, but I like to know more about what goes into my horse.
They are currently on Buckeye's Safe 'N Easy (thanks to this forum! <3 ) and a decent quality hay. I say decent quality because it's not that rich. Long story short, we have three geldings, two arabs and a quarab. The quarab is 30 years old and has cushing's disease (my mom medicates him for it and he's doing relatively well). One of the arabs is just about perfect weight, but lacking muscle tone (needs work!) and the other one, my horse, is fat. He came to me fat and is slowly losing weight, he also needs work.
Sorry for all the boring background, but here is what I am trying to ask, aside from the Fast Track opinion.
I'd like to consider a joint supplement for my fat guy, as well as a coat supplement (he's shedding like gangbusters and the underlying coat isn't as shiny as I'd like). I am considering testing him for cushing's before I put him on a joint supplement because I know that glucosamine, etc can be bad for Cushing's horses. I doubt he has it but better safe than sorry.
Is a coat supplement going to add more weight on my already heavy guy?
If you read all of this, you are a saint. :)
