Standard Process Equine GI | Equine Digestive Supplements - Horse Health

By Dr. Candy Akers

Equine GI Support developed by Standard Process is one of the most well-rounded horse supplements out there. If you want a high quality and delicious nutritional equine gut supplement, look no further! This combination of whole superfoods keeps your horse's digestive tract strong and balanced. 

Organically grown vegetables help to remove inflammation and contribute anti-cancer properties. Inulin is a pre-biotic that feeds good bacteria. The strengthened beneficial bacteria help to black and out-compete harmful bacteria such as E.coli. Also, chamomile calms the stomach and balances gastric mobility.

About Standard Process Equine GI Support

The equine gastrointestinal (GI) tract is an extensive set of organs that must efficiently function together to support adequate nutrition for the horse to maintain a cooperative working attitude and pleasant disposition. Horses experiencing a challenge to the GI tract may or may not display a perceivable change in behavior, eating patterns, or performance.Equine GI Support contains a variety of whole food and other ingredients that may support:

  • Liver and GI tract detoxification pathways
  • The lining of the intestinal wall
  • Healthy bacterial populations in the hindgut
  • Oxidation processes*

Indications for Use: 

  • Horses in training
  • Horses with limited access to pasture
  • Horses experiencing a change in routine
  • Horses that travel
  • Horses with limited turnout

How to Administer

Suggested Use: 1/4 cup (33 g)/1,000 lb. horse/day, or as directed.

Feeding Tips

  • Start slowly by mixing a small amount of powder into the feed.
  • Add the powder to the feed and dampen with water. (Spray bottles can be helpful.) Shake the container to mix the powder with the feed. This will also prevent the powder from settling in the bottom of the feeding container.
  • Mix with unsweetened applesauce and add to the horse’s feed or syringe directly into the horse’s mouth.
  • Add to a mash made of commonly found low-starch pelleted feeds or soaked hay cubes.

What our patients say:

This is a very light product that's easy to hide in a wet mash for those picky horses who refuse their supplements. My picky thoroughbred mare didn't sniff twice at her bucket when I offered it and gobbled every last bit. It was a win win product to add to her daily grain bucket. Being a middle aged, retired show horse she's worked and turned out lightly, living in a boarding facility so this was a perfect addition to her supplement regime.

 My pony tends to get ulcery during show season. He gets UlcerGard when traveling and during the shows but I’d like to find something to supplement that on a daily basis. This supplement is definitely palatable, I mixed it with a few handfuls of wet grain, he slurped it right down and then licked the bowl. Will report back on the supplements efficiency after a few weeks.

I have noticed that the loose manure I usually see during very hot or stressful days has not appeared since I've been giving this to my equines. The ingredients are good quality, it smells great (almost like a fruit smoothie), and even my picky eaters have not turned up their noses at it. My little low-confidence mustang mare has seemed a bit braver the last couple of days. Maybe she's feeling better than usual.  I mix it in soaked timothy pellets and it works fine, though.
