Gastric ulcers are a common under-diagnosed condition in horses and can cause poor performance, poor condition, weight loss and recurrent colic.
We can now diagnose these definitively at using a three metre long video endoscope which is passed into the stomach to evaluate the integrity of the lining.
Ulcers can range from mild to very severe and are graded accordingly. They can be effectively treated, and recurrence prevented by management strategies.
Treating ulcers can result in a dramatic improvement of your horse’s behaviour and performance.
If you suspect your horse could have ulcers or have any concerns please contact us for more information, and also see www.equinegastriculcers.co.uk.
