For total equine digestive tract health, RiteTrac® from Kentucky Equine Research (KER) combines fast-acting gastric antacids and coating agents with KER EquiShure® hindgut buffer for all-in-one digestive support. Over half of horses with gastric ulcers also experience hindgut (cecum and colon) disturbances. KER RiteTrac works in two distinct ways. It quickly neutralizes excess gastric acid to protect the stomach lining and restore the normal gastric environment. It also contains EquiShure, a time-released hindgut buffer designed to maintain optimal pH in the cecum and colon.

Designed to provide rapid relief from discomfort caused by gastric ulcers and hindgut acidosis, RiteTrac is a cost-effective means to supporting a healthy digestive environment for optimal nutrient absorption. It is intended for long-term daily use as a preventive measure to help maintain optimal digestive health and function.

The identification of high-risk periods for ulcer development, and appropriate, well-timed intervention, can be challenging for horse caregivers, as numerous triggers cause ulcers to form quickly. Offering a daily complementary digestive supplement supplies a safeguard for horses in danger of developing ulcers and for those suffering from subtle, subclinical digestive disturbances such as low appetite, loose manure and chronic, low-level colic. 

RiteTrac is recommended for horses at risk of gastric and colonic ulcers, in training or work, on high-grain diets or grazing in lush pasture, experiencing stressful conditions such as travel, show/sale preparation and weaning or demonstrating unexplained behavioral problems or weight loss of unknown origin. It may also help horses prone to mild colic with no obvious reason, those susceptible to laminitis and those with digestive upsets.

Administer 120 grams of powder daily. May be dosed orally or added to horse’s daily grain ration. For best results, split between two feedings. 3 kg.

Due to the prevalence and severity of equine gastric ulcers, much research has been conducted into methods to prevent gastric ulceration in horses. Initially, gastric ulcers were thought to most commonly occur in the sensitive nonglandular or squamous region of the stomach, but recent research has shown otherwise. A study of 201 horses of mixed age and type (including foals, broodmares and performance horses) reported an 83% incidence of gastric ulcers. Additionally, researchers have shown that gastric ulcers can affect physiological factors influencing performance such as maximal oxygen uptake. Signs of gastric ulcers include loss of appetite, weight loss, colic, poor coat, difficult behavior, and decreased performance.
