The Background of Maximum
Animal Health

The Maximum Animal Health story started with the realisation of how important the hind gut is to the horse as a whole and how this not only affects the horse digestive system but overall wellbeing. The link between brain and gut is only just started to be acknowledged.

This has led to Sam developing a range of high-quality products formulated to provide targeted nutrition that is easy to understand and provides horse owners with solutions to real life issues.

Maximum Gut Health

Max Gut-Health is a unique combination of calcareous marine algae and a highly active live yeast, designed as a probiotic to support a healthy gut environment in horses. Max Gut-Health has been designed to reach the hind gut to help maintain a pH neutral environment to promote the growth of beneficial gut flora.

By supporting the hind gut through during periods of change, within our control or otherwise, the horse can digest forage effectively. By doing so we can keep horses comfortable and able to perform to their best ability. The most important job is to keep the good bacteria in the hind gut prolific and abundant, this allows the bacteria to be able to break down fibre efficiently and absorb nutrients, minerals, and vitamins. This stability in the hind gut environment allows the horse to utilise any food and achieve maximum nutritional value.

about maximum animal health

The Importance Of Good Gut Health

Horses have evolved to ingest small quantities of fibrous feeds on an almost continual basis, spending approximately 80% of their time foraging or feeding in the wild.

As a result, they can efficiently digest large quantities of fibre but are less able to digest starchy concentrates found in most modern-day hard feeds.

Understanding the digestive physiology of the horse helps to comprehend the best ways to support it in modern management practices. It has been widely documented that maintaining the horse’s digestive health is an essential contributor to sustaining overall horse health, with good digestive health being linked to performance. It is therefore essential to understand the fundamentals of the equine digestive tract to make more appropriate feeding and management choices.
