Stomach ulcers in horses may lead to pain and discomfort, poor performance, damage to the stomach lining, and even death. Any horse exposed to stressful conditions such as travel, showing, training, racing, competition, barn routine changes, and even stall confinement may be at risk for developing stomach ulcers. In addition, horses can develop stomach ulcers in as little as 5 days.
