Is your horse irritable, losing condition or has a poor appetite? Could they be suffering from ulcers?

Product Description

AbPrazole Plus (omeprazole and lactobacillus sporogenes) is one of Abler’s most popular products for the treatment and prevention of equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS), which is a common issue amongst stabled horses, performance horses, stress due to a changed environment or horses being treated with anti-inflammatories. 

Omeprazole is from the family of proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s) that blocks secretion of acid. Omeprazole assists by reducing and neutralizing acid in the horse’s stomach, which enables improved healing of existing ulcer damage.

The presence of a probiotic (lactobacillus sporogenes) helps restore natural intestinal flora, leading to a more rapid recovery and increased nutrient absorption.

Each dose of AbPrazole Plus is effective for 24 hours.

OVERVIEW

  • Omeprazole 25% w/w
  • Each 4.2g sachet of enteric-coated granules contains:
    • 700mg omeprazole BP
    • 21 billion cfu probiotic B. coagulans (lactobacillus sporogenes)
  • Treatment dosage of 4.0mg/kg (1.8mg/lb) of horse's bodyweight.
  • Prevention dosage of 2.0mg/kg (0.9mg/lb) of horse's bodyweight.
  • DO NOT expose AbPrazole Plus granules to water or the enteric coating will be damaged.

TREATMENT

  • ONE sachet per 175kg (385lbs), administered as a single dose per day for 28 days. 

PREVENTION

  • ONE sachet per 350kg (770lbs), administered as a single dose per day, ongoing.
  • Top dress dry granules onto dry or moist feed. A small amount of corn syrup or molasses can be added to the feed mix.
  • Add to apple sauce and spread onto a treat such as an apple or carrot.
  • DO NOT expose AbPrazole granules to water or the enteric coating will be damaged. Soaking enteric coated granules in water will reduce the effectiveness of the omeprazole. 
Safety and Storage

Warnings

  • Do not treat horses intended for human consumption.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • Veterinary use only.

Interactions/Contraindications

Omeprazole appears to be a safe drug with low associated problems. It is contraindicated in horses hypersensitive to it. Omeprazole may decrease the hepatic clearance of some medications. Omeprazole's safety during pregnancy has not been established.

Side Effects

Omeprazole, like other PPI's, is well tolerated. Nervousness, abnormal heartbeat, muscle pain, weakness, leg cramps and water retention occur infrequently.

Overdosage

Massive overdosage is required to cause problems in other species but the toxic dosage in horses is uncertain. Rats have tolerated oral doses no greater than 40mg/kg (this would be equivalent to ten times of 100% product fed to a horse at one time).       

Toxicity

Omeprazole appears to be very well tolerated in horses. There may be a possibility of Gastro Intestinal (GI) distress (anorexia, colic, flatulence, diarrhea).

Storage

  • Store in a cool dry atmosphere away from extreme heat.
  • Store or transport at 20º to 30ºC (68º to 86ºF).
