Question: Gastric Ulcers? My friend's horse is prone to choke (happened 5 times in past 4 years) and when it happened last night the vet said she may have gastric ulcers which are causing her to choke. How would these cause her to choke? :-S Thanks

Answer: gastric ulcers usually wont cause choke but esophageal ulcers will.if you have had this taken care of often you will know that it is caused by either a horse bolting the food or bad teeth and several other things but since wood chewing or plastic chewing werent metioned i have left them find out if the horse has ulcers there will have to be an exam by the vet and it takes some specialized gear to do it.
