Omeprazole Horse Gastric Ulcer Treatment

Omeprazole is from a family of proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s) that blocks secretion of acid and assists by reducing and neutralizing acid in the horse’s stomach allowing improved healing of existing ulcer damage. Omeprazole is effective for 24 hours, allowing the stomach sufficient time to heal itself. A treatment regime of 28 days will heal the ulcer, and with the chance of re-occurrence being very high, a prevention regime is highly recommended to avoid a flare up of new ulcers.
