Antacid and Coating Supplement for Horses at Risk of Gastric Ulcers

Prolonged exposure of the stomach to gastric acid can cause damage to the stomach lining, resulting in a painful condition for the horse.

Horses with stomach damage can show irritability, poor appetite, and resistance to work. Research has shown that as many as 90% of horses in training have some level of stomach damage. Gastrointestinal upsets are common amongst many horses. Symptoms may include:

  • Gastric sensitivity
  • Loose droppings
  • Windsucking
