It boasts a robust combination of live, naturally occurring microorganisms, delivering a guaranteed analysis of 50 billion CFU (colony-forming units) per ounce, alongside essential enzymes. This powerful blend works in harmony to support the proper balance of gut flora and enhance the absorption of vital nutrients in horses.

Here's a closer look at the benefits and applications of Equine DFM:

1. Live Microorganisms: Equine DFM contains live microorganisms that are not only naturally occurring but also viable. These beneficial microorganisms are essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system in horses.

2. Guaranteed CFU: With a guaranteed analysis of 50 billion CFU per ounce, this supplement provides a substantial dose of probiotics to ensure a robust population of beneficial bacteria in the horse's gut.

3. Enzymes: The addition of enzymes is a key feature of this complex. Enzymes play a crucial role in breaking down food, enabling horses to better absorb nutrients and ensuring efficient digestion.

4. Support for Gut Flora: A balanced and healthy gut flora is vital for horses, as it helps prevent digestive issues, supports immune function, and can even have an impact on a horse's overall well-being. Equine DFM is designed to help maintain this balance.

5. Enhanced Nutrient Absorption: By promoting the efficient breakdown of feed and the absorption of essential nutrients, Equine DFM contributes to the horse's overall health and vitality.

6. Versatile Applications: Equine DFM is beneficial for a wide range of horses, including those in various life stages and conditions. It is suitable for:

  • Performance, Training, and Racing Horses: These horses often have high dietary demands, and Equine DFM can help them efficiently absorb the nutrients they need to perform at their best.

  • Brood Mares and Stallions: During breeding and gestation, mares and stallions require optimal nutrition. Equine DFM ensures they are getting the most from their diet.

  • Recovering or Elderly Horses: Horses recovering from illness or injury, as well as elderly horses, often have digestive challenges. Equine DFM supports their digestive health during these critical periods.

  • Rescue Horses and Ponies: Horses and ponies in rescue situations may have experienced dietary neglect. Equine DFM aids in their recovery and rehabilitation by improving nutrient absorption.

Equine DFM is a testament to our commitment to the health and well-being of horses in all stages of life and activity. It's a valuable tool for horse owners, trainers, and caregivers who want to ensure their equine companions enjoy optimal digestive health and overall vitality.

    50.; billion

    Posted by Lisa on Jun 6th 2019

    I just received the product and have only been feeding it for 2 days. So I can’t really comment on the efficacy. That’s the only reason I gave it 4 stars. However, it should be a good probiotic, with 50.4 billion PFU’s per ounce and the correct bacteria for horses. I’m trying it on my endurance horse, due to the rigorous work schedule he has.

    DFM works to firm loose manure

    Posted by Rogue Pony on Dec 10th 2016

    An old pony came into my care a while back. His manure was consistently wet, never formed. I tried Probios with no effect. With DFM, his manure is now almost always formed. I'm giving the pony 2 ounces and my big horses just one once each. All now have clean bottoms all the time.

    Stopped mild gas colic

    Posted by Lori on May 17th 2016

    I was looking for something to prevent my senior horse from having mild gas colic. She started having mild gas colic 1-3 times a year. I was looking for a product that worked and found this product through an internet search. I called to ask questions about it. The man who took my call was informative and explained why gas colic is more common in the older horse and how this product reduces or eliminates that risk. My mare is doing well on it.

    Best Probiotic

    Posted by HorseGirl on Apr 1st 2016

    This may not be cheap like Probios but - it works. I use it after antibiotic treatments and if I suspect a horse has ulcers. Works every time. Love it, glad it's made by a small company.

    Good prevention

    Posted by Carla J on Jan 29th 2016

    I feed this occasionally to my horses and always for several days before and after a trip or stressful event. Just keeps things moving as they should.
