Event and presentation - Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome
New England Equine Medical & Surgical Center invited horse owners to a special scoping event and educational presentation on stomach ulcers in horses, also known as Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS).
The event included a presentation on EGUS, scopings and and discussing the results, and meeting other horse owners in the area. Interaction from the audience was an important part of this event.
If your horses often travel, compete, train, are confined or experience other potentially stressful situations, EGUS may affect your horse, too - contact us about our next scoping event or with any questions you might have.
