The prevalence of Stomach Ulcers in horses has been estimated to be from 50% to 90% depending on the type of athletic performance they are involved in.
The formation of ulcers in horses tends to be different from that of humans which complicates our understanding of treatment.
What is known is that horses are built to graze and eat frequent small portions of food for extended periods of time and this requires a steady flow of gastric acids for digestion s a horse’s stomach produces acid 24 hours a day.
Therefore when horses are locked up and only fed two feeds per day the stomach is subjected to long periods without the food necessary to neutralize the acid.
Other factors which may contribute to the development of gastric ulcers include high grain diets, stress during transporting, stall confinement and herd separation.
The subtle signs of stomach ulcers may include:
* poor appetite
Note that horses that look completely healthy an also have gastric ulcers and the only way to definitively diagnose ulcers is through gastric endoscopy, or gastroscopy.
As always, prevention is preferable to treatment and some management techniques may assist:

Canterflex Equine is a joint supplement for horses. Canterflex may help in the relief in arthritic symptoms in horses. Canterflex is manufactured from premium grade, cold processed, organic certified Green Lipped Mussel Powder from the Pristine Waters off Stewart Island, the most Southerly tip of New Zealand.
Canterflex is manufactured in using the most modern techniques to maintain the high levels of natural omega 3s and 6s and glycosaminoglycan’s, including Glucosamine and Chondroitin that are found naturally in New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels.
Canterflex is high in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. These include Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), both these fatty acids are used widely as natural remedies for arthritis in animals and humans. Canterflex also contains Eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA), scientists in New Zealand believe ETA may have strong anti-inflammatory properties when combined with other omega 3 fatty acids. These and other phospholipids in Canterflex are thought to act synergistically to have an anti-inflammatory action.
Canterflex contains Glycosaminoglycans, which is predominantly Chondroitin Sulphate as well as Glucosamine, which are building block of cartilage as well as having anti-inflammatory properties.
