    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome product I bought this a month ago for an older mare who kept dropping weight after being separated from her pasture buddy of 3 years. She was on many different supplements during the winter (Forco, msm, cherry oil, Cool Calories, and alfalfa pellets, senior grain, Tribute right choice) and high quality hay and nothing seemed to be helping much. In a month after starting her on this she has gained a lot of weight, her back linne doesn't stick out, her hip bones are no longer able to be seen and her coat is very healthy and shines. She acts like a whole new horse! Works great for a reasonable price, never had a problem with her eating it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working on many different horses I have one very ulcer infested horse that no matter how many times I treat him they come back so I've put him on the uguard plus smart calm ultra. His stools have become more normal and he is less sensitive on his left side. It's been only a month since I've started him on uguard a am pleased in the change thus far. My two competition dressage horses haven't had a noticeable problem with their guts however one school master of the age of 21 and the other off the track at 4 yrs old I want to protect. Since starting them on the Uguard I've noticed a more peaceful demeanor when traveling, regular poop at shows and less gas. I will never take them off this supplement or the others in their regimen as I have seen nothing but positive results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for keeping ulcers at bay! I typically go to Probios for my mate who has had bad ulcers in the past. Though it seemed like it wasn't enough so I tried U- guard paste for when I go to shows and the Upellets for at home. I've never had a problem since!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I have had my mare on this for about 2 months now & I already notice the difference. She hasn't acted 'ulcer-y' at all since she has been put on this. Before, I was treating her with Ulcer Guard, & I'm now using U-Gard as a preventative.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job. I'm just happy he eats it. I've had my 21 yr old TB gelding on this for 3 months (high dose first two months, lowered to maintenance dose in month 3) in an effort to buffer against a change in diet from the swanky performance feed which he decided was yucky to the senior feed (apparently he wants to be old) offered by our wonderful barn. It's tricky to isolate how much of the changes I noticed were strictly due to the addition of this supplement but here are our results regardless: Day 1 - 3: Well he's eating it so there's that. No change. Day 4 - 14: Are you less grumpy or is it my imagination? Week 3: Definitely less grumpy and eating better. Not so weird about the girth this week. Week 4 - 8: Much improved, seems happier and more willing. Month 3: Dropped to maintenance dose and still seeing positive effects. Hasn't tried to kill me this month so I'll call it a win.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I rescued a 26 year old warmblood mare that was in really poor condition. We started her on a good diet but there seemed to be something missing because she wasn't gaining weight and she was hyper sensitive to touch. After our masseuse worked on her she thought she may have some ulcer problems so after doing some research I decided to try U-Gard.She responded beautifully. She became more pleasant, put on weight and lost a great deal of her sensitivity to grooming and touch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Priced right and easy to feed! I am not sure my gelding has ulcers but he is nervous by nature. He eats it right up (granted he is bit piggy) and I feel it can only help his situation with the quality ingredients it has.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I switched from u guard powder to this because he wouldn't eat the powder.He's been so great about eating it. He love it.Since his ulcers have cleared up, his coat has darkened and my chiropractor has said he is clear of them. So I have kept him on his for pushing 6 months now, and he's doing fantastic. Definitely keeping him on it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great post-ulcer treament supplement After I treated, scoped and retreated my gelding for ulcers I transitioned him onto the UGuard pellets. This is the only thing that has kept his weight on and kept his attitude and work ethic up. I tried several other supplements (herbal and not) and this one does it for him. I switched to the powder for a while with no change in his behavior, but prefer the pellets as they're easier to handle. That powder is puffy!
