    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to administer I bought this to prevent the ulcers from coming back. The only way to know is to scope my horse again but he takes it like a champ. I only give it to him in stressful situations so I am hoping its working.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ulcer Guard works super well My OTTB gelding some times suffers from ulcers due to stress of getting ready for shows. My barn manager and some boards had told me about Ulcer Guard and the success they had with there horses. So I thought why not try it out, I started it bought 2 tubes and started a 8 day treatment 4 days before the show and 4 days after the show. By the third day Finn was feeling better. I kept giving it to him the day before the show and the 2 days of completion. Finn was relaxed and not a ball of nerves and stress. This stuff is amazing and I will keep on Ulcer Guard before and after shows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective product at a great price First of all, very impressed by the fantastic customer service I received from SmartPak when I needed this overnighted to me. Second of all, it is a great product for the price and availability without a prescription. Very impressed with how quickly it can calm a flare up, to prevent one (for a non-prescription drug) and it is easy and inexpensive enough to double up the dose for a few days when needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very quickly I have used a tube a day for two weeks and by the third day of use my horse was back to eating his grain and feeling much better. Although it's expensive it really does work and now I am down to a 1/4 tube a day for the next two weeks! My picky horse doesn't mind the cinnamon flavor and allows me to insert the syringe easily now.
