Gut health in veterinary medicine: Publication trends 20-2020

Gut health is one of the important themes addressed at the European Equine Health & Nutrition Congress.  Although the annual growth of publications on this research theme are growing since 2020, the number of publications related to horses remains still low compared to studies performed using farm animals. Regarding to this topic, most studies explore the topics of animal nutrition, the prevention of inflammatory diseases and microbiota composition. Indicating that these themes are key for optimizing zootechnical performance and animal welfare.
