Equine stomach ulcers can be a simple diagnosis with major repercussions. Stressors like limited turnout or grazing, travel, competition or even a change in horses’ daily routine can increase their chances of developing stomach ulcers.

In today’s equine industry, horses are arguably more active than ever. The demands of competition and performance events can weigh on their health, and it’s up to horse owners to make sure that their horse’s health and well-being is at the forefront of their priorities.
