Treating Horse Ulcers Naturally

Treating Horse Ulcers

Horse ulcers are not all the same. They can occur in multiple places in a horse’s digestive tract including the upper or non-glandular part of the stomach, lower or glandular part of the stomach, duodenum (upper part of the small intestine) or colon (large intestine). Since ulcers in different parts of the digestive tract occur for different reasons, applying the same treatment to all horse ulcers is likely to produce a less than satisfactory result. Here is a short summary how different types of horse ulcers can be treated.

Treatment of Horse Symptoms: Stomach Ulcers

Treating horse ulcers in the stomach is all about soothing and protecting the stomach lining, while stimulating healing as quickly as possible. To soothe and protect the stomach lining, you can use a Harmonize daily supplement.  Harmonize is a pelleted and flavored daily supplement for all classes of horses. One pale of Harmonize will feed one horse for approximately one month at a feeding rate of 1/3 lb per day or 5.3 oz. with the enclosed feeding scoop. Feed 1 scoop twice (2x) daily. Harmonize aids in the prevention and repair of gastric ulcers, colic, diarrhea and other digestive upset. Harmonize boost the immunity of adult horses, improves weight gain with picky eaters and senior horses. Harmonize also improves the shininess and strength of the horses mane and the hardness of their hooves. Harmonize contains prebiotics, probiotics, anti-oxidants, organic trace minerals, Vitamin E, A, D, Thiamine and Biotin.

Treatment of Horse Symptoms: Duodenal Ulcers

With duodenal ulcers, the goal is to get the horse into a relaxed state so that proper digestion can take place. Pre- and probiotics are good for this because probiotics (the friendly bacteria that live in the horse’s intestine) produce B vitamins, which help the horse to relax. Effective Harmonize Your Horse products in the probiotics category, improves the shininess and strength of the horses mane and the hardness of their hooves. Harmonize products contains prebiotics, probiotics, anti-oxidants, organic trace minerals, Vitamin E, A, D, Thiamine and Biotin.

Treatment of Horse Symptoms: Colon Ulcers

As with stomach ulcers, healing horse ulcers in the colon is all about soothing and healing the intestinal lining. Harmonize pelleted and flavored daily supplement is particularly effective here, since it coats the intestinal wall and prevents irritation.

Treatment of Horse Symptoms: All Horse Ulcers

All of the methods mentioned above will contribute greatly to healing a horse’s ulcer. In addition to these specific supplements, horses with ulcers also benefit greatly from bodywork that releases adhesions and adjusts spinal subluxations, both of which can cause ulcers. Osteopaths, chiropractors, and body workers such as Equine Touch practitioners can all assist in this area. In addition, examining your horse’s life and removing possible causes of stress, such as excessive use of NSAIDs or a career for which he is ill-suited, can go a long way toward preventing horse ulcers.

  1. I use Harmonize for helping with gastritis and stomach ulcers all the time. One client of mine “Sandman” is a big muscular draft cross gelding. As you know many of our big boys have big appetites too. He developed an ulcer issue with his stomach. We discussed the use of medications for treating ulcers but as you know, these can be quite expensive. We put Sandman on Harmonize and took him off grain all together. The owner was convinced that he would just waste away to nothing without his grain. It turns out he has been off grain for almost a year and a half and he has NEVER looked better. His is muscular, in great shape, his coat shines and he has energy like never before. Another Harmonize success story.
