I have a horse with chronic ulcers. We have treated successfully with omeprazole paste from the vet once (full 30 days). We have maintained with generic powder omeprazole from a company the last several months - We keep him on treatment dose until he dies (chronic chronic ulcers).
He is on Previcoxx daily (also until he dies) for pain management.
He WAS doing GREAT! But recently started dropping weight again, leaving grain, and standing inside in his corner. All typical signs of ulcers.
We’ve immediately started treating with omeprazole paste from the vet again — but I’m desperate for other options.
Hind gut? What do we do to address that? does omeprazole address that? Is there anything else I can do to help this guy out?
Feed? This is a big one - He needs lots of grain to maintain weight. What is a good feed for ulcer horse that has a weight issue (too thin) and is hard to maintain.
Desperate for help!!!
