Ulcers Can be Cured, and Better Yet - They Can be Prevented
Ulcers are very, very common -- nearly 90 percent of all performing/working horses have them! The reason is really quite simple -- it all has to do with the way a horse's stomach is different than ours, different than a cow's, different from your dog's. Stomach acid bathes your horse's stomach lining all the time -- even when empty. And it can accumulate and slosh around inside the stomach, making a perfect setting for an ulcer to begin.
Get your horse well again with this educational seminar by Dr. Juliet M. Getty.
What Horses are Prone to Ulcers?
- Horses that work or perform likely have an ulcer
- Horses that are stalled most of the time likely have an ulcer
- Horses who have been shipped elsewhere for training, removed from pasture-grazing, into a stall-boarded environment, will likely come home with an ulcer
- Horses who stand for hours without forage (including over night), likely have an ulcer
The good news is, ulcers can be cured, and better yet -- they can be prevented!
A Look Beyond Short Term Medical Treatments
Medical treatments usually involve acid-lowering medications. That's fine for the short term, but over the long haul, it can lead to other problems such as suppressed immune function, protein deficiency, and even porous bones. The answer is not an antacid. The answer is feeding your horse the way he was intended to be fed -- like a horse.
