More like nature intended.
In a natural state, horses graze constantly, producing gallons of acid-buffering saliva. Due to the combination of modern feeding and management practices, most horses no longer live this way. Limited access to pasture, the feeding of grain meals, and stressful lifestyles cause excess acid to accumulate in the stomach.
EGUS is a widespread problem among all horses.
A research project recently conducted on a band of broodmares at the University of California, Davis revealed that even though the mares had not been exposed to the conditions conducive to ulcers, the occurrence of ulcers in the mares was approximately 70%. Research done on recreational horses showed that ulcer formation can begin in a couple of days when horses are stressed due to travel or other seemingly minor changes in their routine.
