DESCRIPTION

AbPrazole Plus™ is for treatment and prevention of equine gastric ulcers in easy-to-measure, easy-to-feed once aday dosages of flavorless blue granules containing Omeprazole, PLUS a probiotic. The presence of a probiotic helps restore natural intestinal flora, leading to more rapid recovery and better nutrient absorption.


Omeprazole is from the family of proton pump inhibitors (PPI's) that blocks secretion of acid and assists by reducing and neutralizing acid in the horse's stomach allowing improved healing of existing ulcer damage. The presence of a probiotic helps restore natural intestinal flora, leading to more rapid recovery and better nutrient absorption.

INDICATIONS

For treatment and prevention of equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS) in horses.

OVERDOSAGE

Massive overdosage is required to cause problems in other species but the toxic dosage in horses is uncertain. Rats have tolerated oral doses no greater than 40mg/kg, this would be equivalent to ten times of 100% product fed to a horse at one time. Should a massive overdose occur, treat symptomatically and supportively.


SIDE EFFECTS

Omeprazole like other PPI's is well tolerated. Nervousness, abnormal heartbeat, muscle pain, weakness, leg cramps and water retention occur infrequently.


INTERACTIONS OR CONTRAINDICATIONS

Omeprazole appears to be a safe drug with low associated problems. It is contraindicated in horses hypersensitive to it. Omeprazole may decrease the heptic clearance of some medications. Omeprazole's safety during pregnancy has not been established.


TOXICITY

Omeprazole appears to be very well tolerated in horses. There may be a possibility of Gastro Intestinal (GI) distress (anorexia, colic, flatulence, diarrhea).
