It is common for horses in various disciplines to suffer from ulcers, with a prevalence rate of up to ninety percent. These ulcers can negatively impact a horse's athletic performance. To identify the cause of the poor performance, a thorough examination is required, including endoscopic examination of the stomach.
Poor performance may be attributed to the presence of equine squamous gastric disease or equine glandular gastric disease. If ulcers are present, appropriate treatment can improve the horse's stomach health and athletic performance. Studies have shown that an oral polysaccharide blend of Schizophyllan beta-glucan with hyaluronic acid is both safe and effective in treating gastric ulcers without altering the stomach's PH levels.
