Equine Gastric Ulcer

The Horse – A Grazing Animalhorse_keeping_21
The horse is, by nature, designed to adapt to the conditions of its surroundings. The natural habitat of the horse is the steppe or savanna.

The horse is adapted to digest grass, herbs, leaves, bark and small branches.

Their natural instincts led them to areas where they could find the necessary herbs and minerals that were important for their health.

What Causes Equine Gastric Ulcer
The most significant reason for ulcers among competition horses is the stress of unnatural feeding practices. Many of the industrial made feed supplements, which are part of the feeding regime; do promote Equine Gastric Ulcer. Improper use of NSAID medicine, antibiotics and steroids may also contribute to new, or irritate existing stomach problems.

When a horse leads the life of a professional athlete, it is very important that it is fed a diet suited to its individual biological requirements.

Clinical Indications
There are many clinical indications and symptoms that can be associated with equine gastric ulcers.

It is important to realize that some horses, with inflamed mucosal epithelium, do not show any specific symptoms at the beginning of the onset.

How to heal Equine Gastric Ulcer
Do not feed the horse industrial made feeds. Feed the Horse hay at least 4 times a day or give it free access to hay and/or pasture. A feed ration containing hay, whole oats and beet pulp will help from further straining the gastrointestinal tract.
