The Microbiome Test

Why is hind gut health so important?

The holding vat or cecum of the horse's hind gut (or microbiome) is responsible for digestion of fibrous food items. The trillions of bacteria, fungi, archaea and protozoa, living in the gastrointestinal tract of the horse play major roles in managing systemic health. 

Veterinary research has reported that an imbalance in the bacteria in the microbiome may lead to illness including colitis, inflammation, colic and more.

How can I detect an imbalance in my horse's hind gut? 

The microbiome of the horse needs a diverse population of microbial organisms to function properly. StableFeed's Microbiome Test Kit reveals imbalances in the hind gut and provides you with the information you need to restore balance. 

Below is a graph from an actual report showing the difference between an average balanced microbiome and a microbiome that needs support. To see the full test result click here.
