FAQs: Understanding Equine Ulcers

Overview

Is your horse irritable, losing condition or has a poor appetite?

AbPrazole Plus (omeprazole and lactobacillus sporogenes) is one of Abler’s most popular products for the treatment and prevention of equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS), which is a common issue amongst stabled horses, performance horses, horses stressed by a changed environment or horses being treated with anti-inflammatories.

Omeprazole is from the family of proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s) that blocks secretion of acid. Omeprazole assists by reducing and neutralizing acid in the horse’s stomach, which enables improved healing of existing ulcer damage.

The presence of a probiotic (lactobacillus sporogenes) helps restore natural intestinal flora, leading to a more rapid recovery and increased nutrient absorption.

Each dose of AbPrazole Plus is effective for 24 hours.

Features:

  • Available in granule form.
  • Granules include an enteric coating to ensure the medication can make it through the stomach and target the affected area.
  • Easy to measure and feed.
  • Granules available in bulk packs (equivalent of 50 sachets), for convenience.

Dosage and Feeding

Dosage
  • Omeprazole 25% w/w
  • Each 4.2g sachet of enteric-coated granules contains
    • 700mg omeprazole BP

Safety and Storage

OVERDOSAGE

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.

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).

  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • Veterinary use only.
