Statement: SUCCEED is a great product for preventing or treating diseases of the equine gut.
This is simply not the case. SUCCEED does not treat or prevent any disease in horses.
Various diseases of the gastrointestinal tract are increasingly common problems for horses today, thanks to what and how we feed, how we manage them, and the additional challenges brought on by rigorous training, traveling, and competing. If you think your horse may be suffering, it is important that you seek veterinary help immediately. Your trained veterinary professional will help you to develop a treatment program to put your horse back on the road towards gut health. While SUCCEED may support gastrointestinal wellness in horses, it is not a treatment for disease.
SUCCEED Is NOT a Drug, Treatment, or Preventative
In official terms, SUCCEED Digestive Conditioning Program is not a pharmaceutical. In layman’s terms, it’s not a drug.
Only FDA-approved drugs can treat or prevent diseases in horses. SUCCEED is not an FDA-approved drug and does not claim to, nor does it, prevent or treat equine gastrointestinal diseases. In fact, there are no feed supplements that can legally be considered to treat or prevent diseases of any kind in horses.
SUCCEED Is a Feed Product that Supports Gut Health in Horses
Products for use in animals that aren’t approved as pharmaceuticals must be classified and approved as feed products according to the FDA. As such, SUCCEED is a feed product that may be used to support gut health in horses.
SUCCEED includes all natural ingredients, many with high concentrations of beneficial components, including oat oil, oat flour, dried yeast, and the amino acids L-Glutamine and L-Threonine. Natural, beneficial constituents of these ingredients include polar lipids, beta glucan, mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) that work together to support the healthy structure and function of the equine GI tract, and natural immune health – even in the face of modern feed and care challenges.
Note that because SUCCEED is not a drug and is crafted from natural feed ingredients, it is NOT a prohibited substance under the FEI and other competitive organizations.
SUCCEED treats and prevents GI diseases: myth. SUCCEED is not a drug. It is a feed product that supports gut health in horses.
