Do you think your horse is suffering from gastric ulcers?
Gastric ulceration is very common.
Recent studies have shown up to 50% of leisure horses, up to 50% of foals and up to 90% of racehorses are affected.
Once diagnosed using gastroscopy, gastric ulcers can be treated quickly and effectively. Horses usually return to their former level of performance.
Penbode Equine Vets are holding two gastroscopy days which include £100 off a scoping.
