Background: Keeping horses in confinement, away from natural grass and forage, as well as feeding large quantities of sweet feed with molasses, all increase stress levels, as well as decrease the natural correct digestive processes. Ulcer formation has become a common problem in many barns.
Symptoms: Poor coat, unthrifty, poor performance, lack of energy, grumpy attitude, and discomfort with girthing.
Diagnostics: Endoscopy is the definitive diagnostic technique, though you can safely begin treatment with nutritives based on history and physical exam.
Special Notes: The best correction is turn-out into a grassy pasture for a minimum of 12 hours per day. However, if that cannot be achieved, the use of supplementation and herbs is helpful..
Principles for Supplementation: Support gastrointestinal function, improve digestion, soothe GIT lining.
