Managing the Ulcer Prone Horse
My gelding has recently shown some signs of ulcers. Vet didn't feel the need to scope at this time. She prescribed ranitidine three times a day. This is day 3 and he's already more comfortable. Ricky has plentiful turn out on grass pastures, free choice hay when stalled, eats a ration balancer. Only supplement is magnesium and salt. He is ridden 4 days a week weather permitting. Been in dressage training and the last few lessons seem to have been more demanding physically and mentally. He is a worrier. 8 years old. Wondering if there is something I'm missing or some supplement I can include in his management to create a more comfortable gut.
