Initially I purchased this product to have on hand to administer in advance of "stressful situations" like trailering, new environment, a show, etc. to prevent ulcers, but then we learned that our horse actually had ulcers that needed to be treated. I have been told by more than one vet that Ulcerguard can be used in place of Gastroguard. Ulcerguard seems to be doing the trick in getting rid of our horse's ulcers.
This product was recommended by my vet because my gelding, whom I had just leased and moved to my barn, was acting very "girthy." After a few days of use, he seemed much calmer and less agitated when I tacked him up. After a month of Ulcergard he is happier and ready to work.
If you're ordering this product you don't need a review. You know it works. This company has the best price but know that normal shipping takes more than a week, so don't order it when you're almost out (like I was).
My newest TB has a sensitive tummy, and in spite of my best efforts he got ulcers - again. I've tried a lot of the cheaper stuff, including the "blue pop rocks" - no joy. IMO, until the patent wears out, Merial's Ulcergard and Gastrogard are the only cures for serious cases. Ulcergard is exactly the same as Gastrogard - maybe more volume in Gastrogard but otherwise exactly the same meds in exactly the same patented formulation that gets it through stomach acid intact so it can work - Ulcergard is just slightly cheaper and no prescription needed. EntirelyPets had the best price I could find anywhere on the web, and a tip from the COTH website about where to find an online coupon code helped even more. Still expensive, but no question it works where all else fails. My guy felt better about 5 days into treatment, and scoped ulcer-free last week. EntirelyPets shipped really fast, so between the price and the fast shipping I was very happy.
I received the product and after shopping everywhere this was definitely the best price with coupons. Love the fact I can get it at a more economical price. This treatment is so expensive and I finally bit the bullet and got the name brand paste.
UlcerGard is a great product. It truly works and has helped my horse be his happy self instead of the angry monster that ulcers turn him into. Not only do I recommend the product, but I recommend buying it on this site. This is the best price per tube I've been able to find when it is on sale and it is shipped free and quickly.
I've used this product for years first with a TB that had been diagnosed and treated for ulcers. Would use every time we traveled. Now that I have a new horse, I've begun using this product whenever we travel to prevent ulcers.
it works, plain and simple. Last horse was TB with confirmed ulcers After treatment, we used UlcerGard every time we traveled, and no issues at all. I have a new horse now, and use UlcerGard everytime she travels so that I don't have to go through the treatment again.
