Ablerquant is a horse dewormer in the form of an oral paste (syringe). Generally, deworming agents cannot totally get rid of the parasites in a horse. There are a number of reasons for this.
First would have to be the possibility for reinfection. Since horses graze on a pasture, they ingest larvae that are normally found in grasses and forages.
Secondly, most dewormers (except Ivermectin) only destroy adult worms in the intestines. Strongyle, ascarid and strongyloid can larvae can’t be killed by those drugs. These parasites can survive and cause reinfection.
Thirdly, some parasites like small strongyles have developed resistance to some drugs like the benzimidazoles and therefore is making it even harder to terminate them. Therefore, careful consideration must be done in choosing the right equine worming program to use. Ablerquant dewormers are a combination of Ivermectin and Praziquantel which are proven to be very effective in targeting a wide range of parasites in horses’ intestines with minimal signs of resistance.
Important Points in Equine Worming Program:
• Make it a point to deworm all of the horses in a particular area at one time. This will avoid the possibility of letting the untreated horses contaminate the pastures and paddocks that they share with the treated ones.
• Perform the deworming at regular intervals. This helps attain a low level of infestation. It also avoids the risk of killing a great number of worms causing toxemia or bowel obstruction.
• Provide the correct dosage of the deworming agent to assure effectivity. If the horse is either underdosed or spits out some of the dewormers, some worms would survive and the horse remains infected.
• It’s important to treat a pregnant mare. This will avoid the foal from being overburned with parasites right after being born.
• Carefully read and understand the instructions on the label of the deworming agent. Be particular of the right preparation and dosage. Never overdose!
Ablerquant is a great deworming agent for horse parasites as it is in paste form, making it very easy to administer. The Ivermectin-Praziquantel combination makes it very effective in getting rid of many types of worms, including those that have developed resistance to many drugs. Ablerquant is your horse’s new friend in keeping your horse healthy and worm-free.
Abprazole is used in treating and preventing equine gastric ulcers. Put simply, an ulcer is a wound in the digestive tract lining. It has two types: gastric and colonic. Gastric ulcers are lesions that happen in the stomach while colonic ulcers occur in the colon also known as intestines. While the two types are wounds in the mucosal linings, they are caused by different factors, have different symptoms and are treated differently.
Whether you own, train, ride or breed horses, you would always look and aim for a happy and healthy horse. A horse that has a better performance and behaviour would obviously sell better and require lesser veterinary costs. Unfortunately, a perfectly happy and healthy horse is hard to achieve because of pervasive instances of digestive ulcers in them.
Studies have shown that:
• Around 93% of horses engaged in racing suffer from gastric ulcers
• Almost all performance horses are found to have either gastric or colonic ulcers.
• Gastric ulcers are also very common among 37% of leisure horses.
• Stomach ulcers can be suffered by up to 57% of foals particularly during their first few months of life
• 50% of horses that have ulcers do not show any outward signs of gastrointestinal disease
This represents a high number of horses affected by equine ulcers – which is also costly. There are many conventional techniques in coming up with a diagnosis and in the treatment of ulcers, but this problem still remains to be prevalent among horses. In order to keep your horse in its optimum health, it’s very important to learn and understand the signs and symptoms that your horse is exhibiting.
Omeprazole is the most successful treatment for this condition. Abprazole are blue granules that contains enteric coated Omeprazole. Because Abprazole is enteric coated, it can resist the acid environment of the stomach for at least 1 hour thereby reaching the intestines first, before dissolving and releasing the active ingredient where the pH is already almost neutral. Omeprazole is acid labile which is why enteric coating is required to avoid degradation in the stomach where acidity is high.
The following are the most common signs that your horse may have a gastric and/or colonic ulcer:
• attitude changes
• loss of appetite
• decreased performance and energy
• decline in bodily condition
The following signs may suggest that your horse has a potential digestive issue, these signs are often ignored or overlooked:
• girthiness and sensitivity around the flank area
• stall vices e.g. cribbing and weaving
• not eager to work
The administration of Abprazole for the treatment of digestive ulcers can allow a horse to still continue with its normal daily activities as Abprazole is well-tolerated and allows a quicker healing. A sachet of Abprazole contains a single dose of enteric coated Omeprazole.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION: (2.2lb = 1kg)
Treatment: One sachet per 175kg (385lb)/ per day

Facts about Stomach Ulcers – Horses:
Horses are naturally continual grazers having free access to light grazing. To digest this constant intake of feed, they routinely produce about 1.5 liters of gastric acid per hour.
Horses, those that are being stabled or fed with concentrated or restricted diets, continues to produce acid resulting in an abnormally high acidity in the stomach even when there is no feed intake. Prolonged exposure of the stomach lining to this high acidity condition results in gastric ulcers.
Equine ulcers risk factors that have been found to induce ulcers include some stress related situations like intensive exercise, injury, transport or even psychological stress. The use of some non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (Bute) medications can also induce ulcer horse problems.
Research has shown that ulcers are more prevalent than most owners realize.
Clinical symptoms of Ulcers – Horses:
Whilst an internal examination using an equine gastroscope is the only certain way to diagnose EGUS, there are many symptoms that are indicative of gastric ulcers:
- Decreased appetite – reluctance to eat the concentrated part of their diet
o Loss of weight
o Loss of condition
o Poor hair coat
- Attitude changes
o Aggressive or nervous disposition
o Grinding teeth
o Excessive salivation
o Lying down
o Hunched standing position
Treatment of Ulcers – Horses:
Equine ulcers are diagnosed with gastroscopic examination. But in the absence of a gastroscopic examination, successful treatment of the symptoms usually confirms the presence of ulcers.
The most successful treatment regime today is the use of Omeprazole. Omeprazole in not an antacid. It decreases the gastric acid secretion by blocking the H+, K+ – adenosine triphosphatase (acid pump) enzymes, thus shutting down acid secretion by knocking out the acid pumps – as opposed to competing with the stimulant.
Omeprazole is known to be acid-labile and is degraded under acid conditions in the stomach. In order to be effective, the Omeprazole must reach the intestine intact and needs protection from the acid environment, so we made use of unique technology to enteric coat the Omeprazole granules.
Abprazole Plus™ granules are enteric coated which protects the granules from the stomach acid, thus assuring that your horse gets effectively treated with the Omeprazole.
The loss of appetite and selective eating both create atypical conditions with the intestinal flora, possibly allowing the development of pathogenic bacteria and hindering the effective absorption of fatty acids and other nutrients.
Abprazole Plus™ combines Omeprazole granules with a propriety Probiotic DNA hybridization spore culture (ATCC-31284™) with potency guaranteed within the stated shelf life period which aids in the fast recovery of your horse.
So, get your horse treated now with Abprazole Plus™ – the ALL in ONE equine ulcer treatment that’s affordable for your pocket!

Sarah and Mary’s Message – Abprazole 700
Thank you Abler for the great prize.
I have decided to select more Abprazole for Horse Ulcer treatment. My horse Mary is very prone to Ulcers.
Recently our farm was flooded and Mary being scared of the smallest amount of water, even a puddle,she was moved from her normal pasture to higher ground where she was stalled for several weeks and feed dry hay with her favourite treat my homemade cinnamon cookies with choc chips!
As the weather has now improved and the puddles dried up – Mary and I are back out riding – however she wasnt herself and her manner being one very cranky mare.
Luckily I still had some Abprazole on hand – Mary responded well to 3 sachets per day of Abprazole, she is always on a maintenance dose of 1 per day .- I find it easier and cheaper to have 1 daily dose than a reaccurance of horse ulcers. Why start the treatment all over again?
Appreciate all the savings Abler – you certainly do as you say make Horse Health more affordable for the small Horse person.
