What probiotic do you guys like?

It's been a really long time since I've had to buy any and there are only a few hundred more options now than there was back then.

Which probiotic do you guys think is best? Which one do you use? Do you like it?

When I had Kenzie I was using the tubs of "ProBios" at tractor supply and I really liked them. Not terribly expensive if you buy them by the tub instead of by the tube, and easy to feed through.

I recently found FORCO. The testimonials and reviews are amazing. And even myour very finicky Eater licks her bowl clean.


I'm very happy so far. And they sell large bags of it as well if you have multiple sources.

I have only used the ProBios so my knowledge is limited. Had success with it on horses and calves though :)

I like Daily Start pre-probiotic by EquiShine but I have to order it. Digestive Supplements for Horses: Daily Start Probiotic by Equi-Shine

I switched to Probios as both my local feed store and TSC carry it.

Both of them work very well to control the digestive issues two of my horses have:)

Probios in the powder form. It has worked for me.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I used ProBios powder for my horse when I first got him to help support his gut flora through the transition to a new home. It seemed to work pretty well for him
