The solution for thin manure
One of the most common reasons for thin manure is a disturbed intestinal flora. Does the horse have a long period (longer than two months) of thin manure? Has a manure sample revealed that the horse is not infected with worms though? Hartog Digest brings the intestinal flora back into balance and this roughage mix also helps to reduce the growth of pathogenic bacteria.
How exactly do the intestines work?
A large, diverse population of microorganisms live in the thick and blind gut of the horse. The bacterial species live in symbiosis with the horse and help with the degradation of the hard to digest parts of the ration such as the crude
In order to have sufficient absorption capacity, the intestines are not only
The small intestinal wall is strewn with intestinal villi (intestinal flakes). To enlarge the surface again, the intestinal villi are equipped with microvilli. These intestinal villi have a life cycle of three days. Only
This is caused by:
- Medication use such as antibiotics
- Ration Fluctuations
- Large amounts of starch in the ration
- Worm contamination
- Extreme effort
The disturbed growth cycle of intestinal villi (intestinal cells)
In a disturbed growth cycle of the intestinal villi less fatty acids are released during the breakdown of crude
The cause of thin manure
In ration fluctuations, the population of microorganisms changes and the bacteria in the intestines die, releasing toxins (toxins). When there is a lot of starch, the normally limited population of lactic acid-producing bacteria grows strongly. A lot of lactic
The negative influences of antibiotics
Besides being effective against pathogenic organisms, antibiotics is also a (negative) influence on many beneficial bacteria in the intestinal flora. This creates space for the pathogenic bacteria to multiply. The toxins that produce pathogenic bacteria such as lactic acid and ammonia damage the underlying cells. Usually with watery
How is normal bowel function supported?
We give 5 tips to prevent thin manure. These tips support the recovery of healthy intestinal flora.
- Provide at least 1 to 1.5 kg of dry matter (roughage) per 100 kg of body weight and distribute this over at least four feedings per day
- Use a slow feeder to provide roughage
- Avoid or reduce stressful situations
- Choose a
high-fiberconcentrate feed. The Hartog muesli 's for recreation and sporthorses contain a great deal of fiber- For example, choose Hartog Balance for a muesli and Energy special for fiber- rich sporthorses with a low proportion of starch.
