Equine Glandular Gastric Disease (EGGD)
Studies indicate omeprazole or sucralfate as a sole treatment is not as effective as a combination of the two, as their modes of action are complimentary.
Recommended to administer both omeprazole and sucralfate to treat glandular ulcers.
To achieve the best results when treating glandular ulceration, administer omeprazole in the morning at least an hour before training or main morning feed. Give sucralfate at least twice a day with a small feed (handful of chaff) at least 30minutes apart from all other medications and supplements.
Generally, a horse's stomach is not so full in the morning.
Omeprazole is a one time dose per day, being effective for 24hours.
Sucralfate is a multiple daily dose medication - give at least twice-a-day. Effective for 6 to 8hours. Length of administration depends on the condition, severity and type of ulcer being treated.
The following dosage example is based on a horse weighing 430kg (950lb) as a loading or active treatment or preventative, maintenance dose.
This Glandular Ulcer Bundle includes Omeprazole x 6 weeks and Sucralfate x 8 weeks
AbPrazole or AbPrazole Plus Granules
|Safety and Storage
Massive overdosage is required to cause problems in other species but the toxic dosage in horses is uncertain. Rats have tolerated oral doses no greater than 40mg/kg (this would be equivalent to ten times of 100% product fed to a horse at one time).INTERACTIONS / CONTRAINDICATIONS
Omeprazole appears to be a safe drug with low associated problems. It is contraindicated in horses hypersensitive to it. Omeprazole may decrease the hepatic clearance of some medications. Omeprazole's safety during pregnancy has not been established.SIDE EFFECTS
Omeprazole, like other PPI's, is well tolerated. Nervousness, abnormal heartbeat, muscle pain, weakness, leg cramps and water retention occur infrequently.TOXICITY
Omeprazole appears to be very well tolerated in horses. There may be a possibility of Gastro Intestinal (GI) distress (anorexia, colic, flatulence, diarrhea).WARNINGS
