Descripción del producto

AbSucralfate™(Sucralfate), easy-to-feed, pre-measured doses of flavourless green, film coated granules of sucralfate, for the relief of symptoms of equine gastric and hindgut ulcers.

Sucralfate is an aluminum salt of sucrose which is not absorbed or metabolized in the body.

Sucralfate works by coating the stomach and small intestine with a protective layer. It allows the body to heal equine glandular gastric ulcer syndrome (EGGUS) and equine squameous gastric ulcer syndrome (ESGUS*) non glandular. It has also been known to be useful for treating hindgut ulcers occurring in right dorsal colitis (RDC).

AbSucralfate can also be used as a preventative measure for horses prone to ulcers. Precautionary treatment can be used for travel, times of high stress, feed changes or with ulcers associated with use of NSAIDs.

Each sachet of AbSucralfate contains 5.0g of Sucralfate. 1 sachet per 175kg (385lb) Each dose of AbSucralfate is effective for 6 to 8 hours.

    What to expect:
  • Your horse will experience immediate relief after being treated with sucralfate.
  • You will see noticeable results in 3 - 7 days.
  • For best results, treat for up to 21 days and then continue with the maintenance dose.

Síntomas

Les symptômes des ulcères peuvent être subtils ou extérieurement perceptibles. Un changement soudain du cheval parfait a un animal difficile à manipuler, lors de la pose de sangle, hors alimentation, mauvaise performance dans le ring, grinçant des dents, à un manteau et d'un comportement général terne sont une bonne indication du syndrome de l'ulcère gastrique équine (EGUS.).

Dosis

Regime: Length of administration depends on the condition, severity and type of ulcer being treated. The following dosage example is based on a horse weighing 450kg (990lb)

Non Glandular - Squamous Ulcers

  • Loading or active treatment dose:
    • Week 1 - 4: Omeprazole (AbPrazole™ or AbPrazole Plus™) - 2 x sachets, once per day x 28 days.
    • Week 1 - 3: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 3 x sachets, three times per day for up to 21 days
  • Maintenance or preventative dose:
    • Sucralfate: Gradually reduce to 1 x sachet, at least once per day.
    • Omeprazole: Gradually reduce to 1 x sachet, once per day.

Glandular Ulcers

Studies indicate omeprazole or sucralfate as a sole treatment is not an effective treatment. Its recommended both omeprazole and sucralfate* be administered to treat glandular ulcers, if bacteria has caused ulcers, antibiotic therapy maybe required for healing.
Furthermore, it is recommended to find the cause of the glandular ulcer before continuing treatment long term.

  • Loading or active treatment dose:
    • Week 1 - 6*: Omeprazole (AbPrazole™ or AbPrazole Plus™) - 2 x sachets, once per day
    • Week 6 - 8: Omeprazole (AbPrazole™ or AbPrazole Plus™) - 2 x sachets, once per day (if required)
    • Week 1 - 3*: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 3 x sachets, three times per day
    • Week 3 - 8: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 2 x sachets, at least two times per day
  • Maintenance or preventative dose:
    • Ongoing: Sucralfate 1 x sachet, at least twice per day.

Hindgut/Colonic Ulcers - Right Dorsal Colitis

    Sucralfate has not been clinically proven to heal colonic ulcers. However, sucralfate is well known as a cytoprotective agent. It binds to GI mucosa, and acts as a "band-aid" to the ulcer crater, offering relief from pain associated with ulcers.

  • Recommended dosage:
    • Week 1 - 6: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 3 x sachets, three times per day
    • Ongoing: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 1 x sachets, at least two times per day
Administración

Administration: Sucralfate** should be administered 30-60 minutes apart from other medication including omeprazole (and any other medications).

  • Sprinkled onto a small feed (i.e. a few handfuls of moistened chaff).
  • Mixed with water and administered via oral syringe.
  • Mixed into a paste and smeared onto apples or carrots.

If a dose is missed, give as soon as possible, if next dose is within a few hours of the normal schedule, wait, and give at the regular time. Do not double the dose.

*Long term use: There is minimal absorption of sucralfate. Side effects from long term use are rare.
*Interactions: Sucralfate has been known to bind with other medications, therefore,sucralfate should be administered 30-60 minutes apart from other medication including omeprazole (and any other medications).
*First dose is most effective given in the morning when stomach is less likely to be as full.
