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
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.
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.
AbPrazole or AbPrazole Plus Granules
|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
