Anybody have experience with hind gut ulcers, have a treatment recommendation?
My senior horse has chronic gastric ulcers, likely a result of the previcox he is on for lifetime. We are wrapping up another 30 day treatment of omeprazole (on week 3), and today he left half of his grain, a classic sign. He improved remarkably when we started him on omeprazole, but I’m thinking he may also have hind gut ulcers given that he has not gained weight back like he normally does, and now left grain.
I am waiting for my order of abler abprazole blue pop rocks that I planned to keep him on after this 30 day treatment - but i’m reading more and more how long term omeprazole makes things worse, given that there is no acid to digest the food, making things bad on the hind gut.
We really need relief and advice . TIA
