Product Properties - Key Ingredients
A horse constantly producesstomach acid. This means that when the stomach is empty, the stomach acidirritates the stomach wall and causes sores or ulcers.
There are several ways toprotect the stomach from this stomach acid. Ideally,
the horse has hay available throughout the day, and the hay’s fibres form aprotective mat in the stomach that absorbs the acid and gives it no chanceof harming the stomach wall.
In addition, the amount ofsugar and starch in each meal
must be kept as low as possible because sugar and starch among other thingsincrease acid production.
Feed management is anessential aspect in preventing stomach ulcers, but once stomach ulcers havebeen diagnosed there is a greater chance that they will come back sooneror later.
For this reason, it isrecommended that horses susceptible to stomach ulcers receive dailysupport.
