A nutritionally balanced, medium-calorie fibre feed containing the latest ingredients known to promote gut health including alfalfa.

Taking the latest ingredients known to promote gut health, including alfalfa grown in our own fields, Healthy Tummy is the ideal way to keep your horse healthy and happy.

At a semiar hosted by Dengie earlier this year, leading veterinary expert Professor Celia Marr from the world famous Rossdales Equine Hospital Diagnostic Centre in Newmarket, gave an update on Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS).

Recent research suggests that once horses begin training their likelihood of developing gastric ulcers increases. 17-58% of competition and show horses in competitive work have ulcers and the most surprising results were that pleasure horses – 37-59% suffer from EGUS. While there are many possible causes, high concentrate diets and intense exercise have been identified as the trigger in many equines.

Feeding more fibre and reducing reliance on cereal based feeds can be beneficial and advice is that starch intake should be less than 2g per KG of bodyweight per day to reduce the risk of ulcers.

The new BETA approval mark for equines prone to EGUS created in conjunction with the VMD and launched earlier this year has been created to help owners identify feeds that are suitable for horses and ponies prone to Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome.

Visit our feed advice pages for additional feeding advice for horses and ponies prone to EGUS.
