Resource Library - Underweight Horses

The horse who has difficulty maintaining enough weight may suffer from a variety of conditions, including medical problems, poor dental health, insufficient microbial population in the hindgut, stress, and malnutrition. Aging, and the inherent circumstances that go with it, can lead to weight loss. 

The good news is, that all of these can be conquered and the underweight horse can thrive again. The materials below offer insight into how to approach this problem.
