Equine 74 Gastric
Composition & FAQ
Equine 74 Gastric vs. Omeprazole
When should I use Omeprazole instead of Equine 74 Gastric?
If you suspect your horse has ulcers, call your veterinarian.
They will be able to properly diagnose the problem and determine if your horse requires treatment with a prescription medication such as Omeprazole.
Equine 74 Gastric IS NOT a treatment for ulcers. Once your horse has been successfully treated for ulcers, use the Equine 74 Gastric supplement to help maintain healthy acid levels in your horse’s stomach.
What is the difference between Equine 74 Gastric and Omeprazole?
Omeprazole inhibits the proton pump that produces stomach acid. Equine 74 neutralizes stomach acid, acting as a natural buffer.
Instead of halting the production of stomach acid, Equine 74 buffers the excess acid caused by stress related lifestyle factors many horses face - making it an excellent way to maintain healthy gastric acid levels.
Can I use Equine 74 Gastric and Omeprazole safely together?
If your horse is recovering from ulcers, we recommend starting Equine 74 during the last 1 to 2 weeks of treatment with Omeprazole. Continue using Equine 74 Gastric on a daily base for 6 weeks to 4 months. Or continue using Equine 74 as a longer term solution for maintaining healthy acid levels in the stomach.
Dosage & Composition
What are the dosage and application guidelines?
Feeding recommendation: 1–2 times per day mixed with your horse’s grain.
- Horses and Ponies ≤ 300 kg = 25–30 g
- Horses and Ponies ≤ 600 kg = 50–60 g
- Horses and Ponies > 600 kg = 60–100 g
1 measuring scoop = 25 gram
This is how long Equine 74 Gastric lasts with a daily feeding of 2 x 25 g:
2 kg tin: 40 days
6 kg-bucket: 120 days
20 kg-bag: 13 months
If a horse needs more than the recommended amount daily due to severe stomach problems or due to weight (> 600 kg), the ration number will of course change accordingly.
Keep out of reach of children.
Expiration: 24 months after production date, always view label.

Most horses love the taste but if you have a picky eater start with a small amount (10-15 grams) in his regular feed for the first few days.
Will the magnesium in the supplement cause my horse to calm down too much?
No. After regular use of Equine 74 you may see a noticeable difference in your horse’s behavior.
Many of our customers have mentioned that their horses are more relaxed and have better concentration without the discomfort of excess stomach acid.
Will I see a difference in my horse in the first 10 days?
Your horse may experience some relief in the first week but most customers see and feel a difference in their horses after 4 to 6 weeks.
These changes may include:
- Shinier coat
- Increased muscle development
- Ability to concentrate better during work
- Reduction in unwanted behavioral problems
