Frequently Asked Questions About Our Equine Supplements

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are live bacteria that every digestive system needs to function effectively. It is the same type of bacteria that is in yogurt.

When a horse is given antibiotics, and to some extent paste wormers, it destroys the good bacteria in addition to the harmful ones. That is why animals often stop eating when they are being doctored with antibiotics. Supplements from Ounce of Prevention have enough probiotics to add almost one-and-a-half billion units per day to your horse's diet. This is why when fed daily, they will increase feed efficiency to the point that feed intake can be cut back, which saves money.

What is the difference between worming and using Ounce of Prevention Equine Supplements as a wormer?

Scientific research suggests that the texture of the minerals in our supplements is sharp, and as they pass across the parasite, they cut and kill the organism. The advantage of this process is that it is a mechanical method as opposed to a poisonous method poisonous, such as a paste wormer to which horses can build up immunity.

What is the difference between other supplements and Ounce of Prevention?

Every supplement is different. You should carefully read labels to determine what will work best for your animal's body and health situation.
