Description

Peptizole oral paste for horses contains omeprazole which is a proton pump inhibititor.  It suppresses gastric acid secretion, thus decreasing the overall acidity of the stomach & stomach ulcer occurence.

Peptizole should be used as well as husbandry measures where possible: reducing stress, increasing intake of roughage (such as hay), increasing access to grazing & reducing periods without access to food; can all help to decrease the chance of gastric ulcers occuring.

Peptizole dosage –  should initially be given at a higher dose for 28 days; during this period, one syringe of Peptizole provides a daily dose for a 700kg horse. After this, Peptizole should be given for another 28 days at a lower dose to prevent the reoccurence of ulcers. One syringe will provide 4 days of treatment for a 700kg horse.

This product requires a prescription from your vet & will only be dispatched once we receive this prescription.

Warnings & Contraindications- Not recommended for use in equines under 70kg bodyweight or 4 weeks of age. Wear impervious gloves when administering the product.

Pregnancy & Lactation- Do not use in pregnant or lactating mares.

Management of ulcers also often involves administering supplements for the stomach and gut. You can purchase them here
