Abler Omeprazole Tablets are given to treat and prevent ulcers in horses. Horse ulcers are aggravated by transportation, stress, feeding changes, illness, a rigorous training program, and management changes. Omeprazole is the drug of choice in treating equine ulcers.
Abler Omeprazole Tablets work by decreasing the secretion of gastric acid by inhibiting the actions of the acid pumps. Giving omeprazole to your horse ensures that he can continue training since the ulcers can be healed more quickly.
In both humans and horses, gastric ulcers are wounds or lesions that form along the stomach lining. In humans, the condition is commonly referred to as gastric reflux or heartburn and symptoms call for the use of medications. For horses, their performance can be greatly affected if they are in work with gastric ulcers. Normally, a horse is a grazing animal and they eat most of the time. Even when they are not feeding, gastric acid is still produced. Their stomach though, is designed to withstand acidic secretions and consistent feeding is what protects their stomach from injuries brought by stomach acid.
Symptoms of Gastric Horses in Horses
Ulcers in horses can be diagnosed with an endoscope and the procedure is conducted by the veterinarian. Often, the diagnosis for such condition will be based on the presenting symptoms. Commonly, if your horse has poor temperament, usually moody behavior, poor appetite, diarrhea, and colic, he is suspected to have gastric ulcers.
Giving omeprazole can heal those ulcers and usually, improvement of condition can be noticed within 24 hours. Abler Omeprazole Tablets come in enteric coated tablets and this means that when the drug is administered it should not be chewed or crushed. Omeprazole by nature is unstable in acidic environment and for the drug to work, it should withstand the acidic environment to be able to reach the intestines where it will be absorbed and drug effect will start to be effective. Since the drug is not meant to be chewed or crushed, Abler Omeprazole Tablets is best administered with a balling gun.
