The Webinar Vet has partnered with Merlin Vets to deliver a free CPD sponsored webinar series addressing equine digestive health. The webinar will be taking place on Monday 23 November 2020, 8pm
and presented by Nathan Slovis DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, CHT.

The Veterinary Team at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington, Kentucky has discovered the potency of a polysaccharide formula targeting Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS). Previous pre-clinical successes with other species drove their investigation and found that a unique blend of polysaccharides including MHB3, a patented form of hyaluronan, only found in relyne GI supports healthy digestion.

Hyaluronan, also known as hyaluronic acid, is a natural, high-molecular weight polysaccharide found in the body. Its normal functions include: cell signalling, skin support, moisture retention, lubricating connective tissues, and absorbing shock in joints. However, in the digestive system its function is to maintain normal gastric and intestinal homeostasis and is vital in fluid exchange to and from the body.

Relyne GI also utilises a pure beta-glucan found in yeast extract. Beta-glucans are scientifically proven to nutritionally support immunity.

The prevalence of gastric ulcers in horses is high across all disciplines and effects overall condition, performance, and behaviour. The Hagyards Veterinary team sought an alternative to traditional treatment options for EGUS that would be effective and safe for continuous use without altering the GI Ph.

This webinar will explain how their investigations and continued field-use have resulted in the creation of Relyne GI.

Learning objectives

  • Peer reviewed published scientific paper.
  • Q and A session with Leading International Equine Veterinarian.
  • Launch of a New Gastric Support Product for EGUS management.

Speaking about the partnership Brendan Emery Veterinary Business Consultant from Merlin Vets said:

Relyne GI will give Veterinary Surgeons and horse owners new additional options for long term gastric support to maintain normal digestive function for their horses.”

“We are so honoured to be organising a webinar for Merlin Vets and the esteemed team at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. Kentucky is the Mecca of equine practice and Hagyard Equine Medical Institute is a world-famous centre which has made a really important discovery in the treatment of gastric ulcers.
