    U-Gard® Pellets is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 391.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from My “no so picky eater” won’t eat it Picky eater approved? No! My gelding is not a picky eater and I have trouble getting him to eat it. When I first received it my husband opened the canister and then said to me “are you sure he’s going to eat this”? I then inspected the product and it smells like spoiled fish oil. I split the daily dose in two and mix it with his alfalfa pellets. If he is REALLY HUNGRY he’ll eat it. Would I reorder? No.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My horse has been on UGuard for a little over a month, along with MegaCell. Her temperament has improved 110%, and she’s so much easier to work with!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work I have had my mare on the ugard pellets for 4 to 5 months and her ulcers are back. This product by itself did not work for my horse :(

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seemed to help I sent my mare to a boarding stable for two weeks. When she came home she wasn’t her normal easy going self. She seemed grumpy and out of sorts. I put her on the U-guard pellets for two months and will put her back on them anytime she is under stress.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I started my mare on this a month ago and I'm so glad she did. After being diagnosed with ulcers and treated this helps her belly stay happy
    Date published: 2020-01-04
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from meh. I bought this 5 weeks ago. Horse ate it well. Was hoping to prevent ulcers and improve comfort. (Horse is not really in constant work). Rode her a few times, symptoms of discomfort increased. (girthy, not wanting to go forward- those are her ulcer signs) after 5 weeks on U guard- so I now I am treating her for ulcers. so no I don't recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just plain Works! I love this stuff, I took my OTTB off of it for about a year because he wasnt in consistent work and then we started back in training at the beginning of this year. He has never had trouble keeping on weight (hes actually a very easy keeper) or tacking up but he has been agitated under saddle and would have issues focusing. We put him on smart calm ultra in the summer, which helped, but he kept having random, explosive episodes and he would get keyed up after trying to teach him a new movement in dressage and was very hot off my leg and would get super anxious if I had to use more than a tiny bit of leg to ask. I got a second horse, who I knew was ulcery, so I was putting him on U-Gard and decided to try it again on Tory. OH MY GOSH the first day he had it I was "pony club kicking" him to get him just to trot! he is a much happier horse and he has only had it for a few weeks! Tory will keep this in his supplements from now on! bonus points this stuff is really budget friendly too!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this for my horse who is prone to developing ulcers. Although not the pickiest eater, she can turn her nose up at some supplements. She ate this with no problems and the results have been great!
