Weekend Wrapup from Kentucky Performance Products
We are loving Kentucky Performance Products’ new spokeshorse, EJ. Check out his latest adventure.
From moving to competing to everyday training, the life of an active horse isn’t always all sunshine and clover. And, unfortunately, when a horse’s delicate system gets stressed, ulcers are a common result.
Here’s a bit of research from the Kentucky Performance Products website:
The prevalence of gastric ulcer damage has been documented in 93% of horses in race training, in nearly 60% of other performance horses, and in 57% of all foals. Recreational horses and broodmares are also at risk.
A research project recently conducted on a band of broodmares at the University of California, Davis revealed that even though the mares had not been exposed to the conditions conducive to ulcers, the occurrence of ulcers in the mares was approximately 70%. Research done on recreational horses showed that ulcer formation can begin in a couple of days when horses are stressed due to travel or other seemingly minor changes in their routine.”
Thankfully, there are great products on the market like Neigh-Lox.
Neigh-Lox’s unique patented formula aids in the maintenance of a normal stomach environment that reduces the risk of gastric ulcers. Long-acting Neigh-Lox neutralizes excess acid and coats the stomach lining for up to 8 hours.
In addition to original Neigh-Lox, Kentucky Performance Products now offers Neigh-Lox Advanced.
The Advanced formula combines the ingredients found in the original Neigh-Lox with a proprietary blend of fermentation solubles and Saccharomyces boulardii (a yeast). These ingredients work synergistically to support both a healthy foregut and hindgut. By maintaining a healthy gut, Neigh-Lox Advanced reduces the risk of gastric ulcers, colonic ulcers, diarrhea, and colic or laminitis resulting from hindgut imbalances. It also supports the healing of previously irritated or damaged tissue throughout the digestive tract.
