Ulcer Paste For Horses

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

Research shows up to 90% of performance horses have digestive tract ulcers. Changes in attitude, movement and body condition can be caused by ulcers. In as little as five days, an overly acidic stomach can result in mild to severe lesions of the stomach lining. Drug treatment with Omeprazole is often needed to help rid a horse of ulcers.  Although UlcerRx is by prescription only, Dr. DePaolo can answer your questions about the product and equine ulcers if you contact the DePaolo Equine Concepts office.

 

How UlcerRx Works

The drug Omeprazole decreases the secretion of acid into the stomach. Sodium Bicarbonate is an antacid that raises the pH in the stomach to keep the Omeprazole from breaking down. Bismuth Subsalicylate helps coat ulcerated tissue and protect it from acid.

Recommended For Horses:

  • Diagnosed with ulcers
  • At shows
  • Hauling to events
  • On medications

If you suspect your horse may have ulcers, we encourage you to watch the Ulcer Palpation Video.  It is an extremely helpful took to determine if you horse is suffering from digestive or hindgut ulceration.
