COMPOSITION: 2.3 grams Omeprazole total divided into a 4 dose tube.
Treat equine stomach ulcers with Omeprazole paste in a horse-approved cinnamon flavored paste. Our convenient once a day dosing can be completed in tandem with your horse’s normal training schedule. This patented Omeprazole for horses is formulated to ensure stability and consistency.
Make sure the horse’s mouth contains no feed before administration of Omeprazole paste. You may dose between ½ tube and 1 full tube every day.
To administer Omeprazole to your prized horse, simply aim the included medicinal syringe at the animal’s interdental space and then depress the plunger until it is manually stopped by the knurled ring. You’ll want to ensure that the paste is deposited far back on the tongue or deep into the cheek pouch. This will deliver 1/4th of the entire tube’s contents (0.57g of Omeprazole), or the ideal amount to be taken each day for four days. After delivering the first dose, cap the tube and store the contents in a cool dry place for use the next day. You should observe the treated animal briefly after administering the omeprazole paste to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or rejected. If any of the dose is lost, it is recommended that you redose the horse.
This product is suitable to use with horses, dogs, and camels.
The tube is segregated into four equal doses. However, most horses in competition need one full tube (four doses) daily for one month in order to quell ulcers. After initial suppression of ulcers, most trainers continue using ½ of the tube during competition season. If you have a horse that is not under extreme stress, ¼ of the tube per day will suffice. The entirety of the tube is 2.3 grams of generic omeprazole paste. Each dose is roughly .57 grams of omeprazole for horses.
DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT:
Respond quickly to prevent equine stomach ulcers. The faster you respond to equine stomach ulcers, also called Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (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 treatment with Omeprazole paste as soon as possible.
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
Equine stomach ulcers impact 93% of race horses, 63% of non-racing performance horses, and 51% of foals. Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome, or EGUS, is another name for equine stomach ulcers, and is a serious clinical condition similar to the human counterpart GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. EGUS is caused by excess acid that eats through the protective lining of the stomach, resulting in pain and reduced appetite.
Omeprazole paste is a proven solution to equine stomach ulcers, improving conditions by up to 99%. This industry-standard equine ulcer treatment is used by veterinarians, trainers, and others throughout the equine industry to quickly deliver lasting relief and long-term healing to horses and foals suffering from ulcers. Indicators that your horse is suffering include dull coat, loss of appetite, and poor physical appearance. Use our omeprazole paste to take care of equine ulcers and EGUS today.
How does Omeprazole paste treat equine stomach ulcers?
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 for horses breaks the cycle at the acid pump. Unlike antacids and other products being marketed without FDA approval for treating equine stomach ulcers, generic omeprazole for horses stops stomach acid production at its source by inhibiting the acid pump. 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.
Omeprazole paste acts at the source of acid production. Whereas other products treat the symptoms of stomach ulcers, Omeprazole paste actually inhibits the proton pump that produces stomach acid. During treatment, your horse can continue to train. During training, use one full tube of per day (all four doses) to control stomach ulcers.
