Glandular Ulcers

Glandular ulcers are located in the lower region of the horse’s stomach. These ulcers typically form slowly and often as a result of prolonged treatment with NSAIDs. Typical symptoms include cribbing, weaving and resistance under saddle. Glandular ulcers will only heal when treated with a combination of omeprazole and sucralfate; it is common for these ulcers to take up to 8 weeks to heal.
