    U-Gard Pellets is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 330.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is great Bought it for my Arab on Black Friday, today is now January 12th and I have to order more now. I've only been giving her one scoop a day and I've already seen amazing results. She used to be really girthy and now she's pretty calm about it. she's in a better mood all the time too. I love this stuff, I'm putting her on it indefinitely.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from U-Gard Pellets A small group of family members found and purchased an elderly mare that was destined to slaughter. Other than needing basic care s/a dental care and food, she had abnormal bowels. I purchased a small canister of the U-Gard to see if it would help her. It took about 2 weeks but I have noticed a remarkable improvement! I plan to keep her on U-Gard for the rest of her life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helping our senior horse! We have a 22 year old Tennessee Walker who has had a very hard life--we rescued her at 15 nearly starved to death--and we have always struggled to keep weight on her in the winter. We decided to try this to see if it helped and it really has. She seems to be keeping her weight up well despite the cold and lack of fresh grass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! My hard keeper gelding has lots of health issues, ulcers being one of them. He was on ulcer guard paste but I needed a more cost effective long term treatment. He is a very picky eater, but eats these pellets with no problem. So glad that this is working for him. His appetite has improved greatly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I purchased this I had to treat my horse this summer with omeprazole and this product seems to be very supportive of gut health now that I am more informed about how important it is. Very palatable, my horse ate it up as a top dress on his grain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and works I put my OTTB on this about a year ago, along with changing him to a senior feed, which my vet reccomended for his ulcer-y tummy as it is easier for them to digest. He had to be treated for ulcers FIRST and then put on UGuard for it to be really effective, and I still give him UlcerGuard during traveling and shows. We have not had any issues with Ulcers since we treated him and I think it is from using UGuard in his feed every day to suppress any excess stomach acid. I think for this product to have full effect, owners need to treat their horses with UlcerGuard or GastroGuard and then put them on this supplement so that their horses stomachs are actually healed or healing before putting them on the ulcer maintenance of an antacid like UGuard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for my boy with ulcers! We suspected ulcers by the horse's behavior, so we treated him with Omeprazole for three months, then put him on half dose of this UGard daily. He is one happy camper now!!! I will keep him on this for life!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothes the tummy. My older gelding (15 yrs) gets a little anxious when he goes to a show. He was diagnosed with ulcers. But he would only exhibit the ulcer discomfort when being ridden. This u guard takes care of the problem. Works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Tummy = Happy Horse For the past few months my horse has had loose stool... I switched his feed once and it got worse so decided to stick to our normal regime and try the U-Gard pellets. It seems to have taken a few weeks but I FINALLY saw some normal stool from him this past weekend (it's the little things as horse moms that make us happy, right??). Nothing else has changed except for me adding in the U-Gard and a weight gain supplement from Smartpak so I'd say that has to be the winning formula. Will continue to keep him on it. I think as horse owners we want to see immediate results and that's just not the way it works. If your horse is having gut issues, give it about a month and you should see results!
    Date published: 2016-09-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and easy to feed This is an excellent product, and safe for long term use. I used the paste regime first, with this for maintenance. Easy to feed and it is easily eaten by cautious horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from UGard I bought Ugard to try instead of a different product that was a liquid. Wasn't sure if the pellets would cost as well. Every since I switched I see no change in my horse which means that Ugard is just as good and no mess so happy I made the change.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I bought this a month ago and it's working wonders. I own an off the track thoroughbred that came with ulcers, this keeps him comfortable and happy when saddling up. He's an extremely picky eater and does not have a problem eating this!

After a few weeks he was more comfortable, without colic symptoms. He is now putting on weight and looking healthier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Support My 26 year old mare started showing symptoms of an ulcer about a year ago and I tried to help her with a different product that just didn't seem to make any difference. After seeking veterinarian care for her, I called SmartPak and added U-Gard to her supplement packs. What a difference! She is back to her old self again and in such a short time!
    Date published: 2016-06-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working! Seems to have calmed my normally antsy boy, not sure he has ulcers but doing this as preventative. Seems to take the edge off and help him. Excellent price point! All my Horses eat it with no issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use; palatable; and it works I've been using uguard for about a month for my old mare who gets mass quantities of a extruded feed but wasn't finishing or blooming. She was staying at a bcs of 2! One say watching her closely with my vet she walked away started nipping her side and looking uncomfortable. First thought was colic but in a few moments she came back to her bucket. We both agreed ulcers. So gastroguard and she was fine and eatting. Stayed the treatment and she started to bloom. We stopped and they came back. We started giving her tums which seemed to help but needed a more economical treatment. Uguard it was. Now I hate powders and liquids. I thought it hard was another annoying powder for me to deal with static cling. So happy to find the pellets. Nothing is left clinging to her feed bag. It all gets in her and now in addition to her weight supplement and feed we are after a year of struggling starting to see our old girl back. Uguard makes a difference and it works!
