Today, new research will continue to evolve the way we think about managing the return of ulcers in our horses.
The ulcer recovery road can be a long one for horse owners, the great news is GastroAID Recovery can help you navigate the journey from treatment to management and set your horse up for success!
Thanks to the newest published clinical research, only GastroAID Recovery is scientifically proven to minimise the risk of squamous ulcers returning in the crucial window after stopping omeprazole.
What is the new research saying?
- The level of gastrin, the stimulus for acid production, will rise during omeprazole treatment.
- Gastrin levels return to normal 2 – 4 days after the last dose of omeprazole. Say goodbye to slowly tapering the amount of omeprazole your horse has been using. Click HERE to check out this new research.
- In highly ulcerogenic environments, squamous ulcers can return to pre-treatment levels in as little as 3 days. Read more HERE.
- The use of GastroAID Recovery during this period reduced the recurrence rate of squamous ulcers in a high-risk population of racehorses. To read more on this research click HERE.
“GastroAID Recovery provides a bridge from the pharmaceutical treatment phase through to our long-term management phase and allows us to reduce the risk of the disease recurring.” Professor Ben Sykes.

What does this mean for your ulcer horse?
We need to NOW focus on MINIMISING the risk of squamous ulcers returning for the 48 hours after stopping omeprazole.
To do this we need to:
- Implement a strict R&R (rest and recovery) that does not involve exercise or travel for 48 hours after the last dose of treatment
- Protect the squamous region of my horse’s stomach
- Help reduce the acidity of stomach acid
Ways to achieve success!
Forage, forage, and more forage!
Focus on feeding enough fibre and roughage to create a fibre mat in the stomach. This will help keep stomach acid down in the bottom section of the stomach and reduce the amount of acid splashing around in the squamous region of the stomach.
Acid splashing around = higher chance of the ulcers coming back.
Look at feeding long-stem forage (a.k.a. hay) over short-stem forage (a.k.a. chaff). Why? Long-stem forage means your horse must chew more. Chewing creates saliva, which is a natural way to reduce the acidity of stomach acid.
Handy tip: Lucerne hay is a great choice because it is one of the best types of hay to help reduce the acidity of stomach acid.
Start feeding GastroAID Recovery 5 days before your vet has recommended stopping the omeprazole treatment.
GastroAID Recovery is the only gut health supplement on the Australian market that helps coat the stomach lining through its UNIQUE “alkaline slime” ingredients.
The “alkaline slime” ingredients in GastroAID Recovery help by:
- Forming a barrier over the stomach wall
- Buffering stomach pH to help reduce irritation to the stomach lining
- Strengthening the mucosal lining in the stomach.
Don’t forget about the hindgut!
While GastroAID Recovery is often thought of as ‘the stomach health specialist’, it also offers superior benefits for your horse’s hindgut health.
The additional hindgut benefits of GastroAID Recovery include a unique Agrimos® prebiotic and Levucell SC® S. cerevisiae SC l-1077 probiotic which work together to help:
- Maintain the balance of established beneficial hindgut microbiota
- Maintain a rich and diverse hindgut microbiota
- Stabilise hindgut pH during times of change known to impact hindgut health
- Stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria
- Optimise feed conversion efficiency (great for improving body condition).
