Vetrogard Intense is a proven gastric health support supplement designed for horses of all ages and activities. The palatable formulation is made from micronised soya that has been fermented with Lactobacillus delbruekii Rosell197. The challenge for anyone managing a stabled or active horse is to maintain and support gastric health when the stomach is expecting a supply of food 24/7, but in reality receives discrete meals throughout the day. Appetite, body condition, droppings and behaviour are all linked to gastric health – which when compromised can prevent the horse from performing at its optimum.
Horses experience gastric discomfort when there is an imbalance between factors that are aggressive towards the gastric mucosa (e.g. acid secretions) and protective factors (e.g. mucus, secretion of bicarbonate buffers, cell renewal). In a special manufacturing process, the bacteria is deactivated at the end of the fermentation, so that Vetrogard contains the products of the soya fermentation together with the inactivated bacteria and its metabolites, providing a rich source of nutrients: amino acids, bioactive peptides, flavonoids and isoflavonoids, vitamins and minerals.
Vetrogard Intense is designed to be fed on a daily basis when necessary. Vetrogard Intense is a palatable white powder which requires mixing into damp feed.
Feeding management, exercise, diet construction and stress can all tip the balance away from gastric health.
