Dosage and Administration

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

Sucralfate is a cytoprotective agent for the symptomatic treatment of equine gastric ulcer syndrome, small intestine, hindgut and colonic ulcers (right dorsal colitis). When sucralfate is administered in conjunction with omeprazole, sucralfate will coat the ulcer which avoids further acid damage and allows the omeprazole to treat the cause.

When ingested, the acidic environment forms a thick viscous compound that adheres to the ulcer site, acting as a protective film, providing protection for up to six hours at a time.

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: Sucralfate is a multiple daily dose medication. Contains amount equal to 48 single sachets. 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 heaped scoops, once per day x 28 days.
    • Week 1 - 3: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 3 x heaped scoops, two times per day for up to 21 days
  • Maintenance or preventative dose:
    • Omeprazole: Gradually reduce to 1 x sachet/scoop, once per day.
    • Sucralfate: Reduce to 2 x heaped scoops, once per day.

Glandular Ulcers
Studies indicate Omeprazole or Sucralfate as a sole treatment is not as effective as a combinatuon of the two, as their modes of action are complimentary.
Recommended to administer both Omeprazole and Sucralfate* to treat glandular ulcers.
  • Loading or active treatment dose:
    • Week 1 - 6*: Omeprazole (AbPrazole™ or AbPrazole Plus™) - 2 x sachet/scoops, once per day
    • Week 6 - 8: Omeprazole (AbPrazole™ or AbPrazole Plus™) - 2 x sachets/scoops, once per day (if required)
    • Week 1 - 3*: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 3 x heaped scoops, two times per day
    • Week 3 - 8: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 2 x heaped scoops, two times per day
  • Maintenance or preventative dose:
    • Ongoing: Sucralfate 2 x heaped scoops, two times 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 heaped scoops, two times per day
    • Ongoing: Sucralfate (AbSucralfate™) - 2 x heaped scoops, two times per day

Administración

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

First dose of the day is best administered before any other food or other medication is given. The morning is when the horses stomach is likely to be less full.

  • 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).
Storage: Store in a cool dry atmosphere away from extreme heat. Store/Transport at 20° to 30°C (68° to 86°F).
