Equine gastric ulcer syndrome: is feeding key?

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal Articlepeer-review


Equine gastric ulcer syndrome is caused by the interaction of acid with any part of the stomach mucosa. It is divided into two main categories: equine squamous gastric disease and equine glandular gastric disease. This review explores the highly prevalent equine squamous gastric disorder, the wide range of symptoms, correct diagnosis and the influence of management factors on the initiation of the condition. Although stress, weaning and exercise are all documented factors in the development of equine squamous gastric disorder, this article examines the main diet-related causes and examines why feeding regimens can have a significant impact on the disease, and how best to feed to minimise the development of equine squamous gastric disorder.
