Why Should I Care About Ulcers?

Studies have shown that the prevalence of gastric ulcers in foals ranges from 25-51%; 67-76% of mares at pasture (66.6% pregnant mares and 75.9% nonpregnant mares); and 11-93% of performance horses.

The risk factors for ulcers are exercise, feeding management, stress (physical and behavioral), and use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Research has shown something as simple as hauling your horse to a show or trail ride can incite equine gastric ulcer syndrome.
