It’s no secret a majority show horses and racehorses have equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS). However, it’s not just a problem for performance horses eating highly concentrated diets and under the stress of training. In fact, one study estimates that than 60% of all adult domestic horses and 50% of foals suffer from EGUS.
That’s why The Horse and Boehringer Ingelheim are teaming up in August for Equine Gastric Ulcer Awareness Month. Look for EGUS-related content all month on TheHorse.com, our Facebook page and Twitter feed, and in our e-newsletters.
