Omeprazole contraindications for PPID horse

Sue Ring


I searched in files but could only find the mention of possible contraindications for a PPID horse for omeprazole, but no specifics.  Vet has prescribed omeprazole 1 X daily in AM, and Shifty is being fed 5# of soaked TC Timothy Balance cubed divided into 2 feedings daily.  Feedings include the cubes, 2 handfuls TC Sr for flavor, 1/2 tsp electrolytes, 1/3 Tbsp salt, 1/3 cup ground golden flaxseed, 1/2 scoop Phyto Quench, 1/2 scoop Fast Track probiotics, 8 ml APF given orally, separately in PM.  Hay has been tested and balance mix from Horse Tech is also being fed.  Both feed mixes are fed completely soaked.  Horse receives 3 mg of Pracend daily.  Thanks so much for any information you can provide.

The only contraindication is mixing it with phenylbutazone.
