Good morning, i'm new here my horse has been diagnosed with ulcers. My vet prescribed omeprazole it is very expensive, I have seen generic brands for quite a bit less, anyone have any luck with them. Any info is appreciated. Thanks

After I treated my mare with the medicine for ulcers, I used a papaya puree as a maintenance. It's called Natural Plan Stomach Soother. It works really well, they love it, and it is a little pricey, but definitely worth it. It is good for the entire digestive tract. It's not available in stores (that I've seen) so you'd have to order it.

First I would evaluate how the horse was being kept and fed, as those contribute drastically to ulcers.

I have known several horses with ulcers(off the race track, super high stress, stalled 23 hours a day, very high "octane" feed), the last one didnt respond to the vet recomended treatment, so the owner ended up changing her feed and adding aloe vera, which fixed the problem.
