    Gastric Ulcers

    Equine gastric ulcers have been recognised in all types of horses for a long time.

    Clinical signs vary between horses and are often vague however they may include one or more of the following: poor coat condition, girthing pain, poor performance, poor appetite, weight loss, behavioural changes, stretching to urinate and colic. Equine gastric ulcers can easily be diagnosed, treated and along with management changes can be prevented.

    Gillivervet is pleased to offer in house video gastroscopy to aid in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of equine gastric ulcers.

    If you think your horse may be suffering from gastric ulcers or if you would like more information please speak to one of our vets or go to
