With the end of pasture access, a new hay source/different cutting, return of stormy weather, and the seemingly zillion other seasonal changes, I wanted to get ahead of any potential gastric upset for my aging horse. Unlike years past when trying other brands, adding MVP Probiotic EQ has helped keep his system regular even during the most sudden weather shifts/changes in routine. Stop wasting money on products that don't work and start getting results with MVP Probiotic EQ!

Probiotic EQ™ contains concentrated levels of four (4) key ingredients to provide the support for healthy gut/digestive integrity and immune support. The horse’s gastrointestinal tract is easily imbalanced by stress, disease, diet, environment, or training. Probiotic EQ™ supports the balance of naturally-occurring, beneficial bacteria in the digestive system to help maintain healthy appetite, digestion and a healthy immune system.
- Active Dry Yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae) -- A yeast shown to shown to improve fiber digestion and to assist the beneficial bacteria of the cecum in adjusting to feed changes.
- Direct-Fed Microbials —Live, naturally-occurring microorganisms that support healthy gut integrity, digestion and growth.
- Beta-glucans — Are found in cell walls of bacteria and yeast that help support a healthy immune system by stimulating production of white blood cells and other immune cells to attack pathogens as well as stimulating cells that destroy invading pathogens. Feeds good bacteria and provides a “protective” layer in the intestinal walls.
- D-Mannose (MOS) — Helps stimulate the growth of good bacteria and thought to be a pre-biotic. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Supports easier digestion of fibrous feeds.
Beta Glucan is a powerful stimulant to the immune system. By normalizing the rate at which food moves through the GI tract, Beta glucan also helps to moderate the release of sugar into the bloodstream and helps reduce the digestive upset that can occur when too much sugar reaches the hindgut too quickly.
Mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) are prebiotics composed of complex carbohydrate molecules, derived from the outer cell wall of S. cerevisiae, whose main components, β-glucans (mannoproteins) are known to support immune function. Prebiotics are sources of non-digestible, soluble fiber that serve as food for the probiotics or "good" bugs in the large intestine.
Active Dry Yeast: Supports enzyme activity for fiber digestion in the hind gut and provides a direct source of nutrients to nourish good bacteria. Stabilizes digestive flora during periods of stress for overall health and performance.
Prebiotics act as food for the probiotics or "good" bugs in the large intestine. Prebiotics help promote gastrointestinal health in turn supporting a natural immune response.
Probiotics are live microorganisms (bacteria and yeast) that help promote healthy digestive function and support a healthy immune system. Often referred to as ‘good bugs’ they help break down ingredients/contents that the body normally can't, and help inhibit ‘bad bugs’ from growing.
Can healthy horses benefit from digestive support?
MVP: Healthy horses can benefit from digestive support especially those undergoing feed changes, horses on antibiotics, and particularly those under stressful training, heavy competitive schedules and trailering long distances.
I started Duke on Probiotic EQ the last week of January. I was skeptical. He had been on another probiotic for years, but I trust my friends at MVP 100%. Within a week I ’’ thought’’ I noticed a difference. By mid February he no longer had a nasty tail and messy legs. He is the only horse in his pasture, and if that was not the case I would have sworn the piles of manure I was finding did not belong to him. We are nearing the start of summer now, and Duke has the most formed, normal looking manure that he has had in YEARS! I was always satisfied with his weight, but I think since starting Probiotic EQ he has even filled out a little more. No more having to wash his legs and tail before we trim his back feet either. Probiotic EQ has literally changed his life, and he will continue to be on it for hopefully many more years. Thank you MVP for all that you do!
This is the second time I have ordered this product. It seems to help my horses cope with the extreme weather changes in my mid-western state. I also notice a better utilization of the (plenty of) hay and (very little) grain; the horses drink plenty of water, and are mentally more calm.
This is my 2nd time ordering this product. Works well with my elderly mare
I have fed MVP Probiotic V for several years and was disappointed to find it no longer available, However, I like this product even more. The pelleted form is easy to used and my horses eat it readily.
