What are some of the symptoms of gastric ulcers in horses?
I recommend Outlast by Purina! I have my horse that had colic surgery on it and he has not had an “episode” since! It is highly palletable and great before and after workouts! We never leave home without it!

I know this wasn’t your question but this is a great solution for treatment besides scoping for ulcers.
Girthy , not willing to cooperate when ride ( kicking out , bucking , not wanting to listen to the leg ) also extremely cranky
Symptoms and signs of gastric ulcers are often not easy to recognize. However, they mostly include typical signs as:

- nervousness in standard situations the horse is used to
- weight loss
-Poor appetite
- less performance in daily training and shows
- Poor condition
-lack of focus
- behavioral changes
- bad breath
Colic and upset stomachs. Sensitive to the touch
Girthy and shows pain when touch hind end, stressy horse
