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

Product Description

AbSucralfate granules (sucralfate) is one of Abler’s most popular products for the symptomatic treatment of equine glandular gastric ulcer disease (EGGUD) and equine squamous gastric ulcer disease (ESGUD). Also known to be effective for treating the hindgut and right dorsal colitis. Ulcers are a common issue amongst stabled horses, performance horses stressed by a changed environment or horses being treated with anti-inflammatories. 

Sucralfate binds to gastrointestinal mucosa, and acts as a "band-aid" to the ulcer crater, offering relief from pain associated with ulcers.

Each dose of AbSucralfate is effective for 6-8 hours.

Side Effects

Overdosage

Adverse effects due to an overdose are very unlikely.  

Toxicity

Sucralfate appears to be very well tolerated in horses.
