The active ingredient omeprazole blocks the formation of hydrochloric acid, which is necessary for digestion in the horse's stomach. Thus, the damaged gastric mucosa has time to regenerate over the duration of the omeprazole treatment. The formation of further ulcers is thus prevented for the time being. But what happens after omeprazole treatment?
A reliable, long-term alternative to omeprazole is Equine 74 Gastric. It is a 100% natural food supplement that helps buffer excess gastric acid. When fed daily, Equine 74 Gastric can help create a balanced pH in the stomach. This makes it the optimal alternative for the prevention of stomach ulcers instead of having to treat them with expensive omeprazole.
