Could your horse have ulcers?

The majority of performance horses have ulcers. Is your horse one of them? PLUS: How to reduce your horse’s colic risk, and more!

A horse’s digestive system functions best when he’s allowed to graze forage nearly 24/7, but that’s not always possible. Many horses are kept in stalls and receive rations that are relatively high in concentrates. Add in the stress of transport, training and competing, and the risk of digestive problems increases. In this volume of EQUUS Extra, we explore the causes, signs and treatment of the two most common forms of digestive upset in horses—ulcers and colic.

Featured in this Issue:

  • 5 ways to prevent equine digestive problems
  • How to reduce your horse’s risk of colic
