I’m looking for some suggestions. My gelding has loose manure only when trailering. Consistency becomes cow-patty plops in the trailer and while off property. As soon as we return home, consistency and frequency go right back to normal and remain normal.
He gets GutX 2x per day as a preventative to ulcers. I also usually give him a preventative dose of Ulcergard the day before, the day of, and the day after trailering. My trainer suggested that the cow-patty plops are more indicative of hind-gut issues, and the preventative dose of Ulcergard may be doing more harm then good.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to anything else I could do to help support his GI tract, specific to trailering?
