Winning with Happy and Healthy Horses

If you’re a horse person, you know that familiar feeling of walking into the barn and seeing your favorite horse perk up. Keeping your horse happy means keeping your horse healthy. In this video, hear from AQHA trainers who don’t let equine stomach ulcers stand in their way.

The risk of equine stomach ulcers increases when your horse shows. In fact, two out of three non-racing competitive horses suffer from stomach ulcers.1,2 Stomach ulcers can have adverse effects on a horse’s attitude and performance.2

The trainers in the video recommend GASTROGARD (omeprazole), the only proven and FDA-approved product for the treatment of equine stomach ulcers3, and ULCERGARD (omeprazole), the only proven and FDA-approved product to prevent equine stomach ulcers.1

Please contact your veterinarian for more information about equine stomach ulcers, and visit to learn more about how the only approved products work.
