Ulcers or Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) might seem like a recent phenomenon but it’s probably been afflicting horses for years. It’s just that now Vets have the technology to view the horses’ stomach – a 3m endoscope is required – and so we can see the ulcers. Research has been carried out and we are only just learning the severity of the problem with an estimated 40% of leisure, 60% of competition and 90% of racehorses being affected by EGUS.
Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) refers to lesions of the tissue lining in the non-glandular area of the horse’s stomach. It is thought that diet, stress and exercise can all contribute to the problem and so to avoid or treat EGUS usually requires changes to diet and management as well as any medication prescribed by the Vet.
