DESCRIPTION- Omeprazole Paste
COMPOSITION- 2.3 grams Omeprazole total divided into a 4 dose
ACTIONS- The cinnamon-flavored paste of Omeprazole paste is well
accepted by horses. The convenient once-daily dosing can be
continued during your horse's normal training and the patented
paste formulation ensures stability and consistency.
Before administering Omeprazole paste, make sure the horse's mouth
contains no feed.
Remove the cover from the tip of the syringe and insert the
syringe into the horse's mouth at the interdental space.
Depress the plunger until stopped by the knurled ring.
The dose should be deposited on the back of the tongue or deep
into the cheek pouch.
Care should be taken to ensure that the horse consumes the
complete dose. Treated animals should be observed briefly after
administration to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or
rejected. If any of the dose is lost, redosing is recommended.
Replace the syringe cap after use; remaining paste may be reused
on following days until emptied.
INDICATIONS- Ulcers, poor condition, dull coat, loss of appetite
FORM- Oral Paste
CATEGORY- Stomach care, equine ulcers, EGUS
FOR- Horses, Greyhounds, Dogs, Camels
DOSEAGE & ADMINISTRATION: 1 to 1/2 tube per day.
TRAINERS TIP: The tube is marked for four equal doses however most
horses in competition need one full tube (four doses) for one
month to help ulcers subside. After that most all trainers
continue with ½ tube (2 doses) there after while the horse is in
competition. If you have a please horse that is not under extreme
stress you may be able to give ¼ (one dose) per day although most
horses need the extra dose. The entire tube is 2.3g of
omeprazole. Each dose would be roughly .57g of Omepraole. We
want to make sure that everyone is clear on this fact.

Respond quickly to prevent equine stomach ulcers.
The faster you respond to equine stomach ulcers, also called
equine gastric ulcer syndrome or EGUS, the greater your chance of
reducing the painful and damaging effects of this serious
condition. That's why accurate and timely diagnosis is critical
and why it's important to begin a treatment program that can both
treat stomach ulcers.
How Omeprazole paste works
A horse's stomach is relatively small and cannot handle large
amounts of feed so it must eat frequent, small portions of feed.
It produces acid throughout the entire day.
When roughage intake is interrupted acidity increases, which can
lead to ulceration, or eating away at the stomach's protective
lining. By reducing appetite, this starts a vicious cycle of pain
and suffering for your horse.
Omeprazole paste breaks the cycle at the acid pump
Unlike antacids and other products being marketed without FDA
approval for treating equine stomach ulcers, Omeprazole paste
stops stomach acid production at its source by inhibiting the acid
This allows Omeprazole paste to provide superior treatment and
healing of equine stomach ulcers because its mode of action blocks
acid secretion, regardless of the stimulus.
How common are equine stomach ulcers?
Equine stomach ulcers have been found in horses of a wide variety
of breeds, disciplines and ages, including:
- 93% of racehorses
- 63% of nonracing performance horses
- 51 percent of foals
Gastroscopy events at veterinary clinics and university campuses
in 25 states identified stomach ulcers in a surprising number of
What is EGUS?
EGUS stands for Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome, another name for
equine stomach ulcers. It is used by some horse care professionals
much like its human counterpart, GERD (which stands for
gastroesophaeal reflux disease). Both are funny-sounding names
that stand for serious clinical conditions.
What causes EGUS?
EGUS is caused by excess acid that can eat through the stomach's
protective lining. Once present, stomach ulcers cause pain and
reduce appetite, which can lead to even greater ulceration and
damage. For more information about EGUS, the horse's stomach and
stress factors that can cause equine stomach ulcers,
How can I tell if my horse has EGUS?
Horses with stomach ulcers often do not exhibit any obvious
clinical signs, and horse owners often do not know that their
horses are suffering in silence.
You can help by looking for changes in your horse. Here are a few
things to look for:
- Change in eating and drinking behavior
- Weight loss
- Change in attitude (for the worse)
- Recurrent colic
- Dull hair coat
- Less-than-optimal performance
- Foals may also grind their teeth or lay on their backs
While Omeprazole paste is proven to significantly improve stomach
ulcers by up to 99 percent in treated horses,10 tests with other
anti-ulcer treatments resulted in no lower odds of moderate or
severe ulceration than horses receiving no treatment.
How does Omeprazole paste treat equine stomach ulcers?
Omeprazole paste acts at the source of acid production. Unlike
other, non-approved products, which work for a short period of
time by neutralizing acid within the stomach lumen or acting at
the mucous barrier, Omeprazole paste inhibits the proton pump that
produces stomach acid.
Q: Can my horse continue training during treatment with Omeprazole
A: Yes. There is no need to interrupt training while treating
equine stomach ulcers with Omeprazole paste. While in training
use one full tube per day (four doses) to help symptoms.
