Gastric ulcers are a defect in the stomach lining. Some of the cells that line the stomach produce hydrochloric acid. This acid helps to break down the food in the stomach so that nutrients in the food can be digested by the body.
Sometimes, the acid in the stomach causes erosion or defects in the stomach wall and these are known as gastric ulcers. Unlike in humans, gastric ulcers in horses are not caused by bacteria.
