Merrill's Gastroguard (omeprazole) oral paste is the first and only FDA-approved equine medication proven to heal and prevent the recurrence of gastric ulcers, even while horses continue to train. Gastroguard provides the effective treatment horses deserve through convenient once-daily dosing. Gastroguard is a flavored paste, available in an adjustable dose syringe. A single daily treatment for 30 days provides effective healing or improvement in 99% of horses, even while they continue to train. Gastroguard has been developed specifically for the treatment of Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS). It contains the active ingredient in omperazole; the world's leading anti-ulcer medication for humans and the #1 selling prescription drug. Omeprazole provides superior acid suppression because it effectively shuts down acid production in the stomach, giving the ulcer time to heal. Omeprazole was the first acid pump inhibitor to be approved for use in humans, and is now the first and only acid pump inhibitor approved for the treatment of stomach ulcers in horses.
