  • Aims To evaluate the efficacy of a combination of a unique pectin-lecithin complex (Apolectol®), live yeast and magnesium hydroxide in the prevention of equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS) and faecal acidosis in Thoroughbred racehorses. Methods Thoroughbred racehorses in training with grade ≤ II/IV EGUS were identified on gastroscopy. Horses were randomised to receive either 95 g Apolectol®, 2 g live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae – CNCM I-1077) and 20 g magnesium hydroxide or 95 g of a… CONTINUE READING
