The diagnosis and management of gastric ulcers in horses will be discussed in a free webinar in the “For the Love of the Horse” series created by The Competitive Equestrian.
Gastric ulcers can affect any horse at any age. Up to 90 percent of racehorses and 60 percent of show horses, as well as non-performance horses and even foals are affected by equine gastric ulcers.
In the webinar “Equine Gastric Ulcers: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Management Options”, board-certified equine internal medicine specialist Dr Phoebe Smith will discuss the steps for proper diagnosis and how to select and manage the best treatment options.
