Peptizole is the latest product now available to help treat and prevent gastric ulcers in horses. It contains omeprazole which reduces gastric acid secretion in the stomach.
A dose is given from the graduated syringe once daily for up to 28 days. One full syringe will provide a full dose for a horse of 700kg bodyweight.
If Peptizole is being given as a preventative, rather than treatment of an existing ulcer, then a quarter dose is given each day. Syringes are graduated in 50kg bodyweight divisions. Each 7 ml syringe of Peptizole contains 7.57 g of oral paste and each gram of oral paste contains 370 mg of Omeprazole.
Used for treatment of gastric ulcers and the prevention of recurrence of gastric ulcers.
Not recommended for animals under 4 weeks of age or weighing less than 70 kg bodyweight.
The use of Omeprazole in pregnant or lactating mares is not recommended.
Keep out of the reach and sight of children.
Note: PEPTIZOLE EQUINE PASTE 370MG/G 7 PACK is a prescription-based medication and will be sent once a valid written prescription is received.
