    U-Gard® is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 256.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great!!! I bought this product for my ottb, who was showing signs of ulcers. When selecting whether I should get the powder form or the pellet form, it was strongly suggested to me that I get the powder form, as it supposedly coats the stomach quicker and more effectively. After ordering it, It arrived quite quickly! I starting using it immediately, and my only complaint is that it is sooo messy! But it does make sense as to how it works so well. It coats everything it touches. The dosing was (I believe) 1 of the little scoops it comes with twice a day. Well, the barn I’m at feeds am supplements only, so I decided to just give 1 scoop 1 time a day. Within 5 ish days I noticed a HUGE difference, and after 9 days he was completely symptom free! After a few weeks I actually bumped it down to about 1/2-3/4 scoop per day, and it still makes a massive difference. If I miss a few days of it for some reason, he starts getting grouchy again. I 110% recommend this product. It is so great knowing my horse is comfortable and happy. :) :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Was using the pellets of the same product, found of the powder is much more effective. Very quiet, willing and easy horse.

    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.

    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.

    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!
