Study: Low-Dose Omeprazole and Gastric Ulcers

This study supports that perhaps 1/4 (low dose) Omeprazole may be as effective at healing equine gastric ulcers as the full dose.  Because of the prevalence of ulcers in endurance horses, Omeprazole is one of the few treatments allowed in the rules of AERC endurance.  This study was done on 60 thoroughbred race horses with gastroscopy confirmed ulcers.
