Is your horse suffering from abdominal pain due to ulcers, irritable and losing condition?
AbSucralfate (sucralfate) is one of Abler’s most popular products for the symptomatic treatment of equine glandular gastric ulcer disease (EGGUD), pyloric ulcers and equine squamous gastric ulcer disease (ESGUD).

Each dose of AbSucralfate is effective for 6-8 hours.

|Safety and Storage
Sucralfate can decrease the absorption of many drugs, including omeprazole (PPI's), and should not be given within a minimum of 30minutes from other oral medications and supplements.
As sucralfate is not absorbed systematically, adverse effects have not been reported. Constipation is a possible side effect – consult your vet if signs present.
Adverse effects due to an overdose are very unlikely.
Sucralfate appears to be very well tolerated in horses.
For added effectiveness in the healing of equine ulcers, learn about the benefits of combining AbSucralfate with AbPrazole or AbPrazole Plus (omeprazole).
