Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) is a common condition that affects horses of all breeds and disciplines. It refers to the presence of inflammation and erosive lesions in the mucosal layer of the stomach, ranging from mild inflammation to more severe ulcerations.

Gastric ulcers cause a wide range of clinical signs that can impact the horse’s overall health and performance. Horse owners are likely most familiar with signs like girthiness, irritability, mild colic after eating grain as classic signs of gastric ulcers. But did you know that there are several less-recognized clinical signs of ulcers?

The disease processes of squamous ulcers and glandular ulcers are different, which means their treatment and prevention strategies are also different! This is why it is so important to get an accurate diagnosis if you suspect that your horse has ulcers.

Join Dr. Fran Rowe, one of Mad Barn’s Veterinary Nutritionists, for Part 2 of a three-part series on Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome! In this second video, Dr. Rowe will discuss the diagnosis and treatment for gastric ulcers, including clinical signs, gastroscopic exam, and research behind the most common drugs used to treat ulcers.
