    U-Gard is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 254.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps Stomach happy! Kept my horse on this twice daily during training due to be prone to ulcers and he’s doing great on it. No irritability, ready to work, finishing all meals. He’s happy and so am I

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my guy enjoy his grain again! After figuring out my gelding had ulcers I decided to give this a try. It has worked wonders. He now is back to eating and back in the ring! I'm now on my third bucket!
    Date published: 2018-07-30
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s ok Seemed to work ok, but I wouldn’t get the powder again. It practically explodes opening it and my horse didn’t seem to like it in his grain. He would snort and it would just go everywhere. He ate it though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from U-Gard I bought this a month ago and so happy I did. It is so convenient to have it in a SmartPak pack.
    Date published: 2018-03-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for our horse! Our horse has. Long time history of ulcers and the maintenance dose each day staves off the ulcers!
    Date published: 2018-02-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Maintenance!! A really good supplement for my mare, will always feed it. She stayed happy and healthy from the switch of 24 hour pasture to dry lot/stall, unlike my old gelding who had ulcers. Calypso also enjoys the taste- always goes for the grain with this stuff on it first! My personal favorite is the larger bucket, because it is easy to open and close when feeding unlike twist tops and has lasted way over 2 months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great!!! I bought UGard to help with the maintenance of TJ’s ulcers. At first she wasn’t sure of the powder, but grew to eat it with her grain. She is a happy girl right now.
    Date published: 2017-09-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind I put my senior on this because he's had to have high daily doses of bute lately for his ringbone, and I wanted some assurance that I was protecting his stomach against possible irritation and ulcers. This seems pretty palatable--he eats it top dressed on his grain each morning and doesn't complain. Not sure if it's having the desired effect on his stomach, but so far so good!
    Date published: 2017-09-08
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse wouldn't eat it Can't tell if it would help his ulcers or not because he wouldn't eat it.
    Date published: 2017-06-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ugard is great! I use Ugard in my ulcer prone horse's pre-ride alfalfa snack to help keep the stomach acidity down during my ride. It makes a noticeable difference in her comfort level which helps make us have productive rides.
