Gastro Aid (previously known as Gastro 8) - more horses than one might expect suffer from gastric irritation. Cavalor Gastro Aid works on several levels in order to keep the stomach pH neutral and thus protect the stomach wall against irritation.
Every equine practitioner appreciates the delicate nature of the equine gut. Problems related to the small intestine and large intestine are well understood and routinely treated. What may be surprising is how often the stomach is affected, specifically; the incidence of gastric ulcers is extremely high, particularly in performances horses. Different studies (post mortem and gastro endoscopes studies) show that 75-89% of horses in active training have gastric Ulcers. The major cause of Gastric Ulcers is prolonged exposure of the squamous mucus to gastric acid. The only protection that the horse stomach has against gastric acid and pepsin comes from saliva production. Meals of grain or extended periods of fasting lead to excess gastric acid output without adequate saliva production. Intense exercise increases the production of gastric acid even more in a way that the squamous mucosa of the stomach gets thoroughly bathed in acid. Horses with gastric ulcers may show symptoms like a drop in performance; sour attitude; poor hair coat; grinding teeth; picky eater; Weight loss;...... etc. Treatment of ulcers involves either inhibiting gastric acid secretion, neutralizing the acid produced or protects the squamous mucus from exposure to acid. CAVALOR Gastro Aid provides the nutritional tools to neutralize acid production and stimulate regeneration. It also protects the stomach mucus on different levels using different nutritional approaches (as most CAVALOR products do).
