Simple ulcer diagnostic points

This video shows how to detect equine ulcers by palpating acupuncture points as a method of detection. A horse can go from having no gastric irritation to having ulcers in as little as 5 days. Dr. DePaolo’s easy do-it-yourself method of palpating acupuncture points can be a great indication of the presence of painful and debilitating ulcers.
I believe it is also important to look into what caused these ulcers in the first place. Once you know the root cause, you can work to avoid another occurrence.

Here are a couple other examples showing how horses react before treatment.

  1. I saw the brand Excel, does it have all the ingredients that Dr DePaolo mentioned, aloe vera, slippery Elm bark, psyllium , Ginger root, peppermint, marshmallow root, pre-and probiotics? Where do I order it at? And as he prescribes for Omeprazole,
    Ulcer guard has four doses and each tube. Or should I at least double the dose for the 18 days?

  2. Jackie, I have read that research shows that a half dose of Ulcerguard does same as full dose. You def would not need to double it, and could try half dose.

  3. My question is i have my horses all on bioequine. It is a probiotic as well as mineral.vitamin supplement . We find it sustains what the omeprazole orignally balances out by introducing good bugs to the gut. My question is does the doctor know this product and if so what is his take?.
    Thank you

  4. This video was extremely helpful diagnosising my horse with ulcers. Finally back on track. Spent tons before this simple diagnose. If horses could only talk. I use omprezole/ranatidine compound from Platitum. Safe choice original which is low carbs and has probiotics.
