Equine gastric ulceration syndrome: is feeding the key?

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal Articlepeer-review

Abstract

Equine gastric ulceration 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 deals with the highly prevalent equine squamous gastric disorder, the wide range of symptoms attributed to squamous gastric disorder, how it is properly diagnosed 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 regimes can have such an impact on the disease, and how best to feed to minimise the development of equine squamous gastric disorder.
