PHARMACOLOGY Omeprazole is a proton-pump inhibitor.

Omeprazole suppresses gastric acid by specific inhibition of the H+/K+ ATPase enzyme system at the secretory surface of the parietal cell. Omeprazole will block gastric acid secretion irrespective of the stimulus.

Maximum acid suppression occurs after 3-5 days of treatment.

FEATURES OF GASTRIC ULCERATION IN HORSES

Clinical signs of gastric ulceration include depressed appetite or inappetence, recurrent colic, intermittent loose faeces, chronic diarrhoea, poor hair coat, poor body condition or poor performance. Signs in foals include depressed appetite or inappetence, teeth grinding, dribbling saliva, diarrhoea, sternal recumbency or weakness.

For accurate diagnosis direct endoscopic examination of the gastric mucosa is recommended.
