Omeprazole is the gold standard for treating equine gastric ulcers & it's available in granules, tablets and paste. While each different type has it's own advantages - paste formulations can provide more accurate dosing and might be a better option for fussy eaters.

How to treat gastric ulcers with omeprazole paste.

Follow dosing instructions: Visit the Dosing Calculator and select the dose based on your horse's weight. It's important to follow these instructions carefully to avoid over- or under-dosing.

  • Before giving the dose, make sure your horse’s mouth is empty and without any traces of feed.
  • Remove the cover from the syringe.
  • Insert the device into the horse’s mouth.
  • Press down the syringe plunger until you can’t press anymore.

This means the knurled ring has stopped the plunger indicating that the dose has been delivered.

Effectiveness & Follow Up

Even though the Omeprazole will begin to work immediately (it works by suppressing acid in the stomach), it may still take up to 28 days for the ulcers to heal completely. You should begin to notice small improvements within 7-10 days.
