For the health of your clients’ horses and that of your veterinary practice, it’s critical to stay abreast of the latest developments in equine digestive health research. The good structure and function of the gastrointestinal tract influences not only digestive health and nutrition, but also immunity, energy, body condition, hoof health, mental focus, and much more.
You have a busy practice. You need to spend your time in the field or the clinic focused on providing the best care for your clients’ horses (and to be frank, doing billable work). So, Natalie Cooper, DVM, and Emma Hardy, PhD, R. Anim. Technol (Cert), have done the legwork for you, digging in to understand what’s new in equine GI health research. This paper includes highlights from their detailed review of 11 recently published studies with key learnings from each and suggested implications for practice.
