Why did you choose this?
Horse.com Store
The barn manager recommended it and swears by it for horses prone to colic. I also saw supporting research. I like the pellet since my horse is finicky. He seems to like it. Using this helps save me work from having to add mineral oil to his meals.

how long does it take u guard to work?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2015
Best Answer: Years ago, I actually started with a paste product and then heard about U-Gard. I decided to try it and it is great!!! I have used it ever since for my stallion. I can't actually say how long it should take to work, but it has seemed to work right away. I did stop the paste product as soon as I started U-Gard with no breaks and he did not have an episode in between the changeover. I now use it for two mares that are on daily pain medicine to keep them from developing ulcers. I gave it to my sister for her dog that had stomach problems and she is now using it daily for two of her dogs because they are on joint medication. My daughter is doing the same. My stallion suffered for years with colic. In 2006 he had a extreme colic episode. All the local vets said he was surgical because of his history even though they had not examined him. I called an animal hospital in Kentucky to see if they could do the surgery even though we were going to have to borrow the money. I just happened to talk to a vet named Dr. Carol (I haven't found her since). She actually LISTENED to me and asked me questions about his symptoms. She said it sounded like equine ulcers and told me how to diagnose it. SHE SAVED MY BOY'S LIFE THAT DAY WITHOUT EVER LAYING EYES ON HIM!!!!! I will never be able to thank her enough. The U-Gard has done its job since.

I only feed grain once a day. Can I put the recommended amount (2 oz) in that one feeding?
Holly N on Nov 18, 2015
Best Answer: I have done that and it works, but I have a gelding who is a stress case that does better twice a day. In the morning I just give it to him with a handful of grain and he cleans it up.

Can you feed this to a horse who has ulcers already?
Cheyenne N on Apr 12, 2016
Best Answer: i'm sure it's OK. But the way to cure ulcers is to buy the generic brand of acid reducer that starts with a P. I don't remember which, but it is the one with little pellets in capsules, not the tablets. It was something like 10 pellets a day for 7 days. Empty the capsules into the horse's food. The capsules come in 3-packs, and I think I bought 3 and had 2 bottles left over. It costs a fraction of the prescription horse version. A friend said her vet told her about it. It worked.

How many feedings do u get in this container?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2016
Best Answer: It last about a month. I no longer feed because it didn't work. When I had our mare scoped after being on this she was still stage three with ulcers. So vet recommended using Ranitidine .We started feeding this as per vet instructions and after 28 DAYS on this we had her scoped again and they were all healing. Now we only give Ranitidine a couple days before a competition and a couple days after. Not expensive either and your vet can call it in to your Pharmacy.
