The Microbiome Faecal Test uses state of the art gene technology to identify the complex diverse community within the horses hind gut. Problems within the gastro intestinal tract of horses are common, ulcers in the foregut are treated based on symptoms and endoscopy though no such information or diagnostic tool exists for the hind gut. The information from the Equibiome test will help the horse owner to identify imbalances associated with gastric ulcers, and how to manage the diet to suit the gut community. Between 500-1,200 bacteria are identified, the data is organised into an easy to read report format, allowing the horse owner to make better decisions to promote and prolong health.
rRNA extraction and analysis is complex please allow 8-10 weeks from the time we receive your sample to receipt of results by email.
