Gastric ulcers in horses

Various studies show that 75% of sports horses suffer from mild to severe gastric ulcers. The prevalence of this condition is high, not only in sports horses but also in recreation horses, broodmares and even foals frequently suffer from this condition.
Ulcers occur because the gastric mucosa is damaged by the stomach contents being too acid. The acid balance can, among other things, be disturbed by too long a period without roughage (an empty stomach), a diet too high in cereals and too little saliva production. Horses with gastric ulcers often display reduced appetite, reduced performance, weight loss, a poor coat and even episodes of colic can occur. Gastro-Care+ ensures protection of the gastric mucosa and neutralises excess gastric acid.
