Instructions

GastroGard is effective in horses of various breeds and under different management conditions; foals as young as four weeks and weighing over 70 kg; and breeding stallions.

For oral administration.

Treatment of gastric ulcers: One administration per day during 28 consecutive days at the dose rate of 4 mg omeprazole per kg bodyweight followed immediately by a dosage regimen of one administration per day during 28 consecutive days at the dose rate of 1 mg omeprazole per kg bodyweight, to reduce the recurrence of gastric ulcers during treatment. Should recurrence occur, re-treatment at a dose rate of 4 mg omeprazole per kg body weight is recommended.

It is recommended that treatment is combined with changes of husbandry and training practices (please see Special precautions for use in animals).

Prevention of gastric ulcers: One administration per day at the dose rate of 1 mg omeprazole per kg bodyweight.

To deliver GastroGard at the dose of 4 mg omeprazole/kg, set the syringe plunger to the appropriate dose division for the horse’s weight. Each full dose division on the syringe plunger delivers sufficient omeprazole to treat 100 kg bodyweight. The contents of one syringe will treat a 575 kg horse at the rate of 4 mg omeprazole per kg bodyweight.

To deliver GastroGard at the dose of 1 mg omeprazole/kg, set the syringe plunger to the dose division equivalent to one quarter of the horse’s bodyweight. At this dose, each full dose division on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient omeprazole to treat 400 kg body weight. For example, to treat a horse weighing 400 kg, set the plunger to 100 kg.

Replace cap after use.
