postheadericon Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome

Vet and horse owner talking.Horses are grazing animals and need a regular intake of roughage, which common feeding practices of stabled horses almost always fail to provide. Horses have small stomachs and constantly secrete stomach acids that aren’t neutralized completely through twice-a-day feedings. Acid accumulation may result in the development of stomach ulcers, also known as Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome or EGUS.

Severe ulceration of the stomach, caused by excess acidity, can develop rapidly in horses deprived of feed or not consuming feed. Compared with being turned out to pasture, stall confinement alone appears to be an important factor in the development of gastric ulcers in horses. The Stable Grazer automatic hay feeder can help fight the battle against ulcers by feeding frequent, small meals reducing acid build-up in the stomach.
