Cavalor Gastro Aid is the maintenance product for managing equine gastric disturbances in horses.
Used in conjunction with the Gastro 8 Paste you will notice a difference quickly. This comes without any of the side effects seen with drugs.
In the equine stomach, stomach acid is produced 24/7. As a result, the horse’s stomach is very susceptible to the development of sores and ulcers. The herbs in Cavalor Gastro Aid (Paste) provide the necessary protection for the stomach wall against excess stomach acid. To provide extra assistance for the stomach, they stimulate the production of saliva and help the stomach wall recover from any ulcers.
Product Properties - Key Ingredients
A horse constantly produces stomach acid. This means that when the stomach is empty, the stomach acid irritates the stomach wall and causes sores or ulcers.
There are several ways to protect the stomach from this stomach acid. Ideally,
the horse has hay available throughout the day, and the hay’s fibres form a protective mat in the stomach that absorbs the acid and gives it no chance of harming the stomach wall.
In addition, the amount of sugar and starch in each meal
must be kept as low as possible because sugar and starch among other things increase acid production.
Feed management is an essential aspect in preventing stomach ulcers, but once stomach ulcers have been diagnosed there is a greater chance that they will come back sooner or later.
For this reason, it is recommended that horses susceptible to stomach ulcers receive daily support.
Cavalor Gastro Aid mainly consists of herbs that protect the stomach wall and help neutralise stomach acid. This in turn means that the stomach acd is much less likely to damage the stomach wall.
Also, Cavalor Gastro Aid provides faster healing if the stomach wall has already been damaged.
- Yeast cultures: aid in feed absorption and the digestibility of feed materials.
- Gentiana Lutea: stimulates saliva production and neutralises stomach acid, meaning there is less chance of the stomach acid affecting the stomach wall.
- Melissa officinalis: protects the stomach wall.
- Glycyrrhiza glabra: affects the regulation of the gastrointestinal function and has an antibacterial effect.
- Zingiber officinale: protects the stomach wall and helps damaged tissues heal faster, preventing the stomach acid from affecting the stomach wall.
- Centaurium erythraea: stimulates the production of saliva.
- Mastica: has a healing effect on the stomach.
Instructions For Use
Cavalor Gastro Aid Liq is provided as an alternative to the Gastro Aid Powder if your horse should prefer this taste.
Based on our experience in the management of stomach issues we recommend you begin your horse on Paste.
If they are currently using an Omeprazole based solution then you will need to carefully wean them off this whilst introducing the Gastro Paste.
Ideally this should be done over the course of 1 week.
In the very worst cases you should double the duration of the paste - so 2 tubes daily for 14 days and 1 tube daily for 14 days.
During the last 3 days of paste you should introduce the powder or liquid.
For more information and a specific programme please contact us.

Once the horses stomach is less sensitive and you can see a difference then you can switch from the paste to either the Liq or Powder form.
The liquid and powder forms are also used daily as a preventive measure for
horses that are susceptible to stomach ulcers. Unlike the drug Omeprazole, it
does not stop the production of stomach acid. However, it does protect the
stomach from damage caused by stomach acid.
