Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. Introduces Proviable®-EQ Digestive Supplement for Horses

EDGEWOOD, Md.—Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. announces the launch of Proviable®-EQ for horses, a digestive supplement designed to help reestablish and maintain intestinal health naturally. Proviable-EQ contains a source of live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms with a guaranteed analysis of colony forming units (CFU’s) present on the label. Proviable-EQ is available in paste and powder formulations. Both formulations can be used continuously or as needed to maintain hindgut health during times of stress or digestive upset.

Proviable-EQ Paste is unique because it contains both the yeast species Saccharomyces boulardii and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The easy-to-administer paste helps reestablish healthy intestinal microflora after imbalances. A placebo-controlled study (Desrochers AM et al. J Am Vet Med Assoc 2005;227:954-959.) showed severity and duration of diarrhea were significantly less in horses administered Saccharomyces boulardii. Research using other species suggests Proviable-EQ Paste also might be of benefit after intestinal surgery to help support intestinal function.

Proviable-EQ Powder contains Saccharomyces cerevisiae and is administered once a day to help support healthy gut flora and maintain appetite. The powder also helps protect against more long-term imbalances caused by events such as starting a new diet or initiating longer-term administration of antibiotics.

“Both yeast species along with the guaranteed analysis of CFU’s in Proviable-EQ are a major factor in distinguishing from the competition,” said Tara Cullen, equine product manager. “We are proud to offer veterinarians and horse owners a quality product to help maintain digestive health in horses.”

Both Proviable-EQ Paste and Powder contain prebiotics, a selectively fermented carbohydrate that can help stabilize healthy microfloral populations during dietary stress and assist with digestion.
