On March 17, 2020, we sponsored a Gastroscope day at our hospital. This was in conjunction with Boehringer Ingelheim.

Dr. Trent Bliss from BI, performed the gastroscopes. We invited some of our clients who in the past have had issues with gastric ulcers in some of their horses.

We examined some very good cases of gastric ulcers and learned about the product “Gastrogard” and “Ulcergard” and their correct dosage and use.

Dr. Stites also picked up a few pointers for improving his scoping techniques.

Thanks to Troy Williams with Boehringer Ingelheim, and Trish Clark from MWI Animal Health for sponsorship.
