Gastric ulcers (equine gastric ulcer syndrome) are common in all horses. Research has shown that nearly 60 percent of performance horses have stomach ulcers (Merck & Co., Merck Veterinary Manual, pg 218). Ulcers can be caused from stress, or inflammation due to gastric acid in the stomach.

Colic in horses refers to abdominal pain, and is a common issue seen by veterinarians. There are several different types of colic and treatment options prescribed by a veterinarian depending on the type of colic a horse has.
MagnaWave for colic in horses is effective at alleviating discomfort and pain. MagnaWave is easy to apply, and no sedation is needed. Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) can penetrate gently but deeply into a horse’s body encouraging the body to recover while promoting health and wellness. Always consult your vet when dealing with equine colic.
An abscess is an accumulation of pus (which are simply dead white blood cells) that have formed a lump internally or externally on the horse’s body. An abscess occurs because of an infection and can begin with a wound, nail in the hoof, strangles, or penetration of the skin or hoof with a foreign object.
Managing a horse’s hoof abscess with MagnaWave may help expedite the recovery process. PEMF is non-invasive, requires no downtime, and is drug-free. PEMF is said to stimulate good oxygenation, improve blood flow, and decrease pain, which can help your horse recover from a hoof abscess.
Laminitis is a crippling condition that occurs when the laminae in the hoof becomes damaged and inflamed and does not support or hold the coffin (pedal) bone and can lead to rotation. Common causes include, but not limited to metabolic issues or supporting limb laminitis.
