Freedom Health presents a discussion about the equine microbiota featuring Scott C. Anderson and Leah Mitchell, DVM. With significant recent developments in microbiome research, it has been established that almost all non-genetic diseases originate in—or are affected by—the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The bacteria, fungi, protozoans and viruses that colonize the GI tract, collectively known as the microbiota, play a crucial role in both health and disease. Laminitis, colic and diarrhea—all of these gut issues can all be linked back to the microbiota.
