didn't work for me
I tried this product but it didn't work for my horse. I think she needs something stronger.

Have a friend that's been having trouble getting weight on her saddlebred. Tried anything & everything people told her. He just wouldn't put any weight on & wasn't showing much interest in his food. It would take him all day to eat his grain. I was ordering other things & decided to try U-guard at a friends suggestion. She'd had to use something like it for her mare. Gunner loves it. After being on it for 2 weeks. He's not only gained about 50 lbs but he's looking forward to his food. He's nickering for it. He will also finish it before the other horses get done with theirs. Could not believe the difference in just 2 weeks. We can't wait to see what he looks like at the month mark. We would recommend this to anyone that thinks their horse has problems with ulcers. Wonder life saving product. Thanks SmartPak!

My mare was diagnosed with grade 1 ulcers last fall after having her scoped and decided that after we did a round of GastroGard, we would start her on some sort of gastric supplementation to help keep the ulcers away. UGard was recommended to me by my trainer and also a few other people at my barn whose horses are already on it. She's been on it for a while now and have not noticed any classic signs or symptoms of ulcers since. She has been in heavy trainng for the past few months now and she is 100% fine. Sometimes though I am finding some of these pellets left uneaten at the bottom of her corner feeder.. hmm

Tried U-Gard for the first time on the recommendation of my instructor, as my 10yr old OTTB gelding was beginning a new training regimen & we wanted him to have a little extra gastric support. Noticed after about three weeks his coat is the shiniest I have seen it in 5 years, and he is mellow and working great! Had no issues with him eating the pellets they were gone the first day. Will be keeping him on this from now on!

I was recommended by a vet to try Uguard to see if it would be a good way to manage my mare's ulcers. It seems to make a difference, I have had her on it for 2 months

Works for most horses, but mine refused to eat it
I loved the price but unfortunatlly my horse refused to eat this. He's also is the pickest eater that I've ever met. I have a friend who's mare has horrible ulcer symptoms and when she eats this product, she feels better. Oh well I'll keep searching.
