What is Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome ?(EGUS)
Gastric ulcers are common in both adults horses and and foals. The collective term is ‘Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome’ (EGUS) because of its various causes and somewhat complicated nature.
Studies reveal that up to 70%-100% of horses have gastric ulcerations. Mostly as a result of low roughage diets, stress and strenuous exercise.
Horses are usually natural grazers, feeding on grass most of the time. A considerable amount of gastric acid is produced in order to process this food. This continuous supply of feed and acid is a well balanced process.
Unfortunately, stabled horses are often fed large amounts, less frequently. They are also likely to have diets high in grain rather than roughage. The same amount of acid is being produced, with less food in the stomach to act as a buffer – meaning the stomach lining is exposed to more acid than it is designed to deal with. If this continues regularly, this can lead to ulceration of the stomach lining.
