Modern feeding practices can make it difficult to provide the type of diet which is high enough in fibre. Equally management regimes can add additional pressures which influence the balance of beneficial and pathogenic bacteria in the gut.


There are a number of factors which can lead to dysbiosis including:

  • Stress
  • Limited turnout
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Transport
  • Management changes
  • Low forage diet
  • High cereal/concentrate diet
  • Feeding and diet changes
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Weaning

If any of these factors apply to your horse, short term or on-going, then they may benefit from a product within the Coopers Gut range.

Dysbiosis factors are not the only reason a horse could benefit from a Coopers Gut range product. Other reasons to supplement are:


  • To help establish healthy gut flora in a newborn foal
  • To help support and maintain an ideal body condition during periods of high energy demands such as in-foal mares, youngsters and competition horses
  • For horses finding it difficult to maintain body condition
  • To help maintain normal gut function during periods of digestive disturbance
