A research-based discussion of equine microbiota implications and strategies.
Significant developments in microbiome research have 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.
Microbiota research is developing so rapidly that most veterinarians in everyday practice may struggle to keep up. This white paper examines the latest and most important clinical studies contributing to equine microbiota research, enabling practitioners to improve their understanding, treatment strategies, maintenance approaches, and subsequent outcomes.
