Discover How Gut Microbes Affect Your Horse’s Health

An advanced science-based at-home test delivering key insights to improve your horse's health.

With Horse Microbiome test you will receive:

  • A Horse Microbiome Test kit
  • Your Horse’s complete gut microbiome analysis & personalized Insights
  • Recommendations for dietary changes you can make including probiotics & supplements only if your horse needs them.

You’ll learn about the living microorganisms in your horse’s gut through an in-depth analysis along with a personalized report and dietary changes and supplements suggestions to help bring your horse back into balance.

  • Recommendations are backed by science and unique to your horse
  • Horses have a microbiome that is home to thousands of microbes, with links to immune function, energy and nutrient availability which in turn affects health and performance.
  • RNA sequencing allow us to accurately pinpoint levels of all the good and bad gut microbes as well as their functionality and make personalised recommendations on how best to increase or reduce them through dietary changes.
  • Good gut bacteria such as bifidobacterial, actinobacteria, and lactobacillus , help to form a barrier against invasion from pathogenic bacteria, the barrier is called the 'Resistome’. Many of our horses have low levels of these good gut bacteria which has been linked to stress especially in athletics performance horses.

Here are some of the amazing things we can see with next generation sequencing

  • Microbiome ability to process nutrients in foods like forage, pellets, chaff & supplements.
  • If your horse’s microbes are not able to digest the amount of protein they are eating.
  • Dietary effects on temperament and behaviour.
  • If the diet you’re feeding your horse is contributing to inflammation, colitis and allergies.
  • Fatigue and the Immune System.
  • The presence of pathogens (disease-causing bacteria) like E.coli and Salmonella.
  • Your horse’s metabolism status.
  • The health of the gastrointestinal tract.

Gut Biome Can Affect Your Horse’s Weight

Gut microbiome changes with diet, medication, stress and disease. Scientists now understand the critical role gut health plays in stress as well as a huge range of chronic disease.

We believe applying revolutionary technologies to predict, prevent and reverse these conditions using food, prebiotics and probiotics as medicine.

Skin

Certain microbes produce metabolites that are pro-inflammatory or can trigger the immune system to be more reactive and exacerbate allergic skin disease or skin inflammation.

Identifying the presents of such microbes give us an opportunity to change their number by adjusting the diet or using prebiotic and probiotic supplements.

Digestive Insights

Appetite level, Tummy upsets, excess gas, chronic diarrhoea, inflammatory bowel disease and many more have been associated with dramatic changes to the gut microbe populations. The gut protective barriers and mucous lining has been associated with high numbers of “good” bacteria.

Learning about the microbial population that make up your horse’s gut biome can provide insights to better management of these conditions.

Behaviour Problems

Gut Biome and Behaviour:- If you think the brain is doing most of the talking, think again. It turns out the microbiome has a lot to say. Through the use of neurotransmitters, hormones, proteins, and other communication factors, your horse’s gut can send messages directly to their brain. Their microbes influence how they feel and affect their emotions. Studies have linked the composition of the gut microbiome with several behavioural and psychological conditions in animals such as aggression, anxiety and even depression and hyperactivity such as ADAD in people.

Identifying specific microbes that have been linked to behavioural issues will be highlighted in your report along with dietary o supplement suggestions where appropriate.

Stress & Health

Gut microbiome changes with diet, medication, stress and disease. Scientists now understand the critical role gut health plays in stress as well as a huge range of chronic disease.

We believe applying revolutionary technologies to predict, prevent and reverse these conditions using food, prebiotics and probiotics as medicine.
