Gastric ulcers

Gastric ulcers in horses are a common problem, particular among racehorses and elite competition horses, although they can be suffered by horse of all ages and types, particularly if they have limited access to forage or suffer stress. Foals are also susceptible. Ulcers can occur in both the upper (squamous gastric ulcers) and lower (glandular ulcers) parts of the horse’s stomach.
