Surprised? Wherever there is stress,
there can be stomach ulcers.

Simply transporting your horse to and from a horse show, feeding him twice a day or giving him light exercise could be enough to develop them.2 And they can happen in as little as 5 days.2

Stomach ulcers, also known as Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS), are sores on the stomach wall caused by excess acid. They can:

  • Keep horses from performing their best
  • Cause lasting damage to the stomach lining
  • And even cause death3

You can keep your horse from becoming a statistic with ULCERGARD® (omeprazole) and GASTROGARD® (omeprazole) – the only proven and FDA-approved products for equine stomach ulcers.
