Ran across someone asking about esomeprazole for equine ulcers on FB awhile ago, and I went poking around to find this paper:
Dove was cribbing quite a lot after the move and Pigs is just prone, so I thought I’d try it.
Nexium is ~$20 for 42 20 mg capsules on Amazon.
I’ve been giving 3 capsules (60 mg) a day to each horse for about a week.
I’m seeing FAR less cribbing in Dove…actually, I don’t think I’ve seen her crib at all since we started. Pigs looks to be picking up, too.
Treating a horse for four weeks at 60 mg/day = 40 bucks.
Overall has been a successful experiment for me and my horses so far. Curious to see if it’s ever brought to the equine market. Would love to see a vet doing a scoping study with it!
