GastroPrep EQ relieves your horse’s pre-event gastric jitters with targeted, fast-acting support. Scroll down for complete information.
Don't make the mistake of thinking GastroPrep EQ is just for performance horses with ulcers--this tube of probiotics and prebiotics came in very handy when my retired senior gelding was on a lot of gut-disrupting antibiotics post-surgery. Within a day of administering a syringe of GastroPrep, his manure was firmer and he seemed less uncomfortable over all. I like to keep a few tubes on hand around the barn for those inevitable "is he feeling okay?" days when something seems not quite right about a horse's intestinal comfort. Horse people know what I'm talking about! Great product.
GastroPrep EQ provides quick relief for pre-event gastric jitters.
For pre-event or shipping, administer 30cc to 60cc one hour prior to event or transport. Effects begin immediately and last up to 8 hours. For horses in distress, administer 60cc. Repeat in 90 minutes if conditions persist. Flows best at room temperature. GastroPrep EQ is also available in powder form.
Tips for Best Results
GastroPrep EQ is great to use alongside UlcerGard and GastroGard (medications that your vet may prescribe). GastroPrep EQ may be used continually afterwards to maintain digestive support.
Aspergillus Niger Probiotic bacterium complex that provides lipase, a digestive enzyme that works in a broad spectrum of gastro intestinal pH to enhance efficient digestion or nutrients.
E. Faecium Probiotic that enhances efficient digestion of nutrients and controls diarrhea
E. Lactis Probiotic that is part of the bacteria flora in the gut that digests protein. High levels of E. Lactis are protective against E. Coli colonization.
Aspergillus Oryzae Enhances flora and provides enzymes to increase digestive efficiency.
Bacillus Subtillus Enhances flora and provides enzymes to increase digestive efficiency.
Lactobacillus Acidophilus Synthesizes hydrogen peroxide and suppresses the growth of pathogens in the gut.
FOS Inulin Fructo oligosaccharide: prebiotic nondigestible ingredient that enhances the growth of healthy gut flora. Prebiotics are destructive to pathogens that set up in the gut.
MOS Mannan oligosaccharide (MOS) a prebiotic, effective in controlling the growth of harmful bacteria in the gut. Pathogens bind with MOS instead of the mucous membrane, and are excreted from the digestive system along with toxins they would have produced. MOS can be digested by the enzymes of certain beneficial bacteria, so in addition to discouraging harmful bacteria, MOS also improves the growth of beneficial bacteria. MOS is also an immunostimulant. Some animal studies suggest it improves digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Threonine An important amino acid that assists nutrient absorption and metabolism, and aids function of the GI tract.
Live Yeast (including Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Enterococcus Lactis, Enterococcus Faecium, Saccharomyces Boulardii) 34.4 billion CFU – a very aggressive level of organisms that will maintain and restore hind gut flora. The yeast population in GastroPrep EQ will help restore both stomach and hind gut health.
L-Glutamine An amino acid that is key in regenerating damaged mucosal tissue.
Glycine Glycine is essential for a healthy, normally functioning digestive system. It helps regulate the synthesis of the bile acid used to digest fats and is beneficial in protecting and repairing gastric mucosa. Glycine also makes the stomach more alkaline and lowers the stomach acid.
Hydrolyzed Collagen Digestive tissue is supported by collagen molecules.
Hydrolyzed collagen is more easily absorbed, and supports and repairs gastric mucosal lining.
Silica Mineral that is essential in tissue regrowth and Ulcer regeneration.
Magnesium Buffering Agent to help reduce acidity in stomach.
Gamma Oryzanol Rich in antioxidant compounds derived from rice bran oil.
Soothing and Comforting Agents
DGL Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice Relieves discomfort and inflammation related to gastric ulcers.
Quercetin Phyto Chemical (found in onions and garlic) that is useful in promoting anti-inflammatory and healing effects in gastric ulcers.
Sodium Copper Chlorophyllin Effective in helping to heal ulcerations and inflammations.
Q: Is GastroPrep EQ a replacement for UlcerGard or GastroGard?
A: No. UlcerGard and GastroGard are Proton Pump Inhibitors that reduce the production of stomach acid, prescribed by a vet for a specific condition. They create an environment where ulcers can begin to heal. GastroPrep EQ supports the healing process and maintains peak digestive function during and after the administration of omeprazole.
Q: Should my horse stay on GastroPrep EQ all the time or only when he needs it?
A: GastroPrep EQ will help support the digestive condition of every horse and may be used continually. GastroPrep EQ paste is great to keep on hand in case of gastric distress. You may choose to use GastroPrep EQ intermittently, but most horse owners who start their horses on GastroPrep EQ see such great improvement that they continue feeding it daily.
Q: Does GastroPrep EQ contain any prohibited substances?
A: As leaders in the management and preparation of top performance horses, we create the most effective formulas while avoiding all prohibited substances.
