An ulcer is an area of damaged and eroded tissue that leaves behind a painful divot (think of a canker sore or a bed sore). In this special report, take a “closer look” at gastric ulcers in horses, an all-too-common equine stomach condition. The leading causes for gastric ulcers are compromise of the protective stomach lining and repeated exposure of this lining to acid.

This report provides an overview of gastric ulcers in horses as well as a detailed illustration.
