With EGUS, prevention can be the best medicine.
Equine stomach ulcers, also called Equine Gastric Ulcer
Syndrome or EGUS, create a painful condition that can reduce your horse’s
performance and can even lead to death.1
Horses with EGUS often suffer in silence before they are diagnosed and the horse
owner never knows it. Even worse, stomach ulcers can appear or recur in as little
as 5 days.2
These are just a few of the reasons why many horse owners choose to prevent stomach
ulcers instead of waiting for them to happen — by guarding against stomach
ulcers whenever horses are exposed to stressful situations.
Stay on guard with ULCERGARD® (omeprazole).
You guard your horse against injuries. You guard against disease. With ULCERGARD®
(omeprazole) you can guard against equine stomach ulcers.
ULCERGARD is the only medicine that’s approved by the FDA to prevent equine stomach
ulcers.* Best of all, it’s easy to use.
Your veterinarian can supply you with ULCERGARD and discuss management tips that
also can help reduce the stress factors that cause
stomach ulcers. You may be surprised that many simple, everyday activities
can lead to stress, and stomach ulcers in your horse.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
ULCERGARD can be used in horses that weigh at least 600 pounds. Safety in pregnant
mares has not been determined.

*When treated for eight to 28 days, ULCERGARD is proven to effectively prevent gastric
ulcers in horses exposed to stressful conditions.
