Product Summary:

Merial® UlcerGard®

To help prevent an outbreak of ulcers, feed your horse UlcerGard. Ulcers are caused by radicals fluttering in the horse’s body. Clinical symptoms of stomach ulcers include poor appetite, loose stools, poor coat, and low performance. Omeprazole, the main ingredient in UlcerGard for horses, suppresses acid production, stopping pain and discomfort before they occur. Just 1mg/kg of omeprazole per day for 28 days effectively prevents the onset of ulcers in horses exposed to stressful conditions.

Features:

  • Palatable cinnamon-flavored oral paste
  • FDA-approved to prevent painful stomach ulcers in horses
  • Can be used for stallions but not for pregnant mares
  • Convenient once-a-day dosing

28 days on this and my horse was noticeably calmer and happier. Had a wonderful trail ride on him. He tends to pace his pasture fence and he is now less intent on pacing and is grazing more. I think he liked the taste and the syringes are small and easy to handle.

How many ulcer grad do I need for my gastric uncredited horse?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2016
Best Answer: The vet had me treat my horse for 21 days with 1 tube per day. After that 1/4 tube per day starting 2 days before and during travel. She is on neighlox daily when not on the ulcer guard. It is a time and $ investment, but it worked very well for us.

how many doses in a tube?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2016
Best Answer: That depends on why you're giving it. If you're trying to reduce stomach acid during a period of stress, to prevent ulcers, the recommended dose is 1/4 tube daily, so there are 4 doses per tube. If you're treating ulcers, you'll likely need to give a tube daily for 4 weeks or so before you can begin tapering the dose to 1/2 then 1/4 tube. Your vet, and the response from your horse, can help guide you.

Should I give my horse this product on an empty stomach or after I feed?
Jamie K on May 26, 2016
Best Answer: Shouldn't matter. In fact, your best plan (if your horse is prone to ulcers) is to never let him have an empty stomach! -- Keep hay in front of him 24/7.

I have a horse who only goes to 3 horse shows a year. She only displays symptoms of ulcers at the horse show and not at home. How much Ulcer guard do I need to give her to keep her comfortable at a show?
Susan M on Feb 24, 2015
Best Answer: Hey Susan! (Great 1st name by the way)--our vet has recommended that we give 1/2 the usual dose the day prior to trailering, 1/2dose daily while we are there & 1/2 dose one more day after return. I also have purchased the powder form from my vet, and this is much cheaper than Ulcergard. This apparently is only available by prescription from vet, so you can check with yours. This is easy to sprinkle in with feed & my horse eats it right up! Hope this helps! Blessings to you & your horse, Susan L.
