    U-Gard Pellets is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 346.
    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!

    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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Results! I saw results within a month! I recently purchased a horse and he was displaying signs of mild colic, frequently. He also had symptoms of ulcers. After a few weeks he was more comfortable, without colic symptoms. He is now putting on weight and looking healthier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I don't notice a difference in my horse. Supplements usually are hard to tell if they have a big effect at first . No problems though with him being on it!

    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!

    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!

    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.
    Date published: 2016-04-01
    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.
