    UlcerGard is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 185.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can cause hind gut acidosis--careful! This is a drug--it has drawbacks. By shutting down acid production your horse may wind up with partially in digested food entering the hindgut where it continues to break down--almost a rotting process. The hind gut flora population changes to accommodate and, wham, your horse develops hind gut acidosis--not diagnosable via scoping. So then one has to use buffered sodium bicarbonate (equisure) and smart gut to get the hindgut back to the correct pH. Ask me how I know this..... lots of "ulcers" are actually hind gut acidosis in the first place for that matter--wherein ulcerguard is useless or even harmful in the first place. So use this stuff sparingly and carefully -- best to get stomach scoped to be certain one is treating the right problem (stomach full of ulcers? Here's what worked for us: use a course of ulcerguard then stop and treat with equisure and smartgut.... We travelled a loooong road to discover the ulcerguard that had successfully the stomach ulcers then had set him up for hind gut acidosis--pony developed terrible cinchiness and bit his sides and cried out. That time ulcerguard made zero difference. Only gradually taking him off ulcerguard and a smart vet who put him on the buffered sodium bicarbonate and probiotics (smartgut) saved our guy's life.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well accepted by my horse My horse tends to be a bit nervous in certain areas and I use UlcerGard to prevent any tummy problems. So far he has been perfect.
    Date published: 2017-08-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought this product to help my horse with show stress and the constant moving into different environments. Thus far, she has been comfortable and has no digestive issues. I would strongly recommend this to anyone taking their horse to different places for trails, or someone who shows heavily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally gaining weight! I have a 16 year old rescue who I was having trouble putting weight on. After 3 weeks on this product, I can finally see some weight gain! Only problem is my mare hates the taste.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price! Severe issues had my gelding on omeprazole for over a month. I saved significant $$$ over the clinic price of $45.50/tube. I always check smartpak first!
    Date published: 2017-06-29
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy ulcergard from another vendor I purchased this from Smartpak thinking the expedited shipping would help get the product to my gelding who was being treated for ulcers. It took 2 weeks to reach the trainer's facility so I had to purchase about 10 says worth at a much higher cost from another source. I'll never again but a product from Smartpak that I can get someplace else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always use when competing/traveling Just settles my OTTB, stomach and makes him less upset about competing and gives me piece of mind also.
    Date published: 2017-05-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't Travel Without I've always used Ulcergard at shows, otherwise my mare goes off her grain completely. After a recent bout of ulcers, it's guaranteed I won't travel without it.
    Date published: 2017-05-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really helped! I recently won an ULCER Guard at an APHA show and tried it on my horse. It made such a difference that I purchased some from SmartPak and my horse is really responding well to it.
    Date published: 2017-05-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great Good stuff that really works. Unfortunately, the price is ridiculous. Due to the fact that the product has to be used for a prolonged period of time, the cost is prohibitive.
    Date published: 2017-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OTTB's ulcers reducing My OTTB was on the track for 8 years so, of course, he had rampant ulcers. I used this to treat the ulcers. I saw results within days of starting this product. He didn't fuss during brushing, etc. I still have him on the treatment and also have him on SmartPak's GI supplement. I am confident that with the combination of these two, we will be able to heal his gut well.
    Date published: 2017-04-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value! This was almost $20 cheaper on smartpak than buying from my vet. Shipped quickly and helps my horses' stomach at shows.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I like the product but would love clearer directions for usage.
    Date published: 2017-02-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It actually works! It's on the expensive side, but it's worth every penny. My horse is eating much better and is overall happier and comfortable. It is not the fastest most convenient process but it works if you're willing to follow through. I would use it again but I hope I don't have to!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific I have been using this product for a good while and it has helped my horse tremendously.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff My trainer noticed my show horse wasn't eating or performing at 100% so a 30 day course of ulcergard has my boy feeling better. A little pricey but a cheaper than colic or surgery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works It works well and my horse will eat it without trouble
    Date published: 2016-08-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great precaution for the stresses of events Proven protection at a fair price. I feel like I helped big pharma with a Chevy payment instead of a Mercedes.
    Date published: 2016-08-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Administer! I use UlcerGard every time I travel. Great way to help prevent ulcers in horses stressed during transport or showing. Vet recommended. I find it easy to administer and my horse doesn't spit it out. Safe to give whole tube at one time or to give single doses (four doses in tube).
    Date published: 2016-07-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to product to protect the belly My horse gets the support of Ulcergard whenever he is on a long course of bute, antibiotics, or traveling. He recently tore a tendon and has been on stall rest for nearly a month. I've tried to keep food in front of him in a slow feeder for entertainment, but he's an easy keeper and controlling his weight while he is locked up is challenging. When I can't add more food, I know his belly will be protected from ulcers even when he isn't inhaling his food.
    Date published: 2016-07-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Great product. Give it to all horses who travel Or going away to show or clinic.
    Date published: 2016-07-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! we've been using this for over a year now and just started purchasing it from Smart Pak...Smart Pak has a great price point and free shipping is even better!
    Date published: 2016-06-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for maintenance I have a very sensitive mare and after the vet and I agreed to treat her for ulcers my vet suggested that I used ulcerguard "whenever she does anything other than come out for her usual training session" this meant offsite lessons, clinics, horse shows etc. So far I haven't noticed her usual crabbiness while tacking up of being sour to my leg. Seems to be doing its job! I definitely recommend ordering the bulk package to save some $.
