Summary

    Regime: Sucralfate is a multiple daily dose medication. Length of administration depends on the condition, severity and type of ulcer being treated. The following dosage example is based on a horse weighing 450kg (990lb)

     

    Non Glandular - Squamous Ulcers
    • Loading or active treatment dose:
      • Week 1 - 4: Omeprazole (AbPrazole™) - 2 x sachets, once per day x 30 days.
      • Week 1 - 3: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 3 x sachets, two times per day for up to 30 days
    • Maintenance or preventative dose:
      • Omeprazole: Gradually reduce to 1 x sachet, once per day.
      • Sucralfate: Reduce to 2 x sachets, once per day.

     

    Glandular Ulcers

    Studies indicate Omeprazole or Sucralfate as a sole treatment is not as effective as a combinatuon of the two, as their modes of action are complimentary.
    Recommended to administer both Omeprazole and Sucralfate* to treat glandular ulcers.

    • Loading or active treatment dose:
      • Week 1 - 6*: Omeprazole (AbPrazole™) - 2 x sachets, once per day
      • Week 6 - 8: Omeprazole (AbPrazole™) - 2 x sachets, once per day (if required)
      • Week 1 - 3*: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 3 x sachets, two times per day
      • Week 3 - 8: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 2 x sachets, two times per day
    • Maintenance or preventative dose:
      • Ongoing: Sucralfate 2 x sachets, two times per day.

     

    Hindgut/Colonic Ulcers - Right Dorsal Colitis

    Sucralfate has not been clinically proven to heal colonic ulcers. However, sucralfate is well known as a cytoprotective agent. It binds to GI mucosa, and acts as a "band-aid" to the ulcer crater, offering relief from pain associated with ulcers.

    • Recommended dosage:
      • Week 1 - 6: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 3 x sachets, two times per day
      • Ongoing: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 2 x sachets, two times per day

     

    AbSucralfate Granules
    • Top dress granules to a handful of dry or moist chaff
    • Add to corn syrup, molasses or a treat
    • Mix into a paste and smear onto apples or carrots
    • Mix with water and administer via oral syringe
    • Most effective when fed at least 30 minutes apart from other medication and supplements.
    • Try to feed when horses stomach is least likely to be at its fullest.

     

     

    AbPrazole or AbPrazole Plus  Granules

    • Top dress dry granules onto dry or moist feed. A small amount of oil, 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. 
    Safety and Storage 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).

    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.

    TOXICITY

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

    WARNINGS

    • Keep out of reach of children.
    • Veterinary use only.
