Gastric ulcerations occur in approximately 80% of racing thoroughbreds and horses that perform strenuous exercise. Gastric ulcers are generally recognized as being caused by the stress of stall confinement, training, feeding large amounts of high-starch grain, insufficient fiber in their diet, or long periods between feedings.
The ultimate diet for horses should be free access to grazing grass and a sufficient amount of good quality hay along with a minimum amount of concentrated starchy food to supply the energy needed for the level of work the horse is performing. Performance horses are sometimes stabled up to 23 hours per day while being fed large amounts of starchy foods with limited amounts of hay.

U-Gard is formulated with all-natural ingredients. Each ingredient was chosen to perform a specific function, which synergistically allows the body's natural healing process to take place.

        Comments about U-Gard:

        I think it's working on my mare. She was getting kind of irritable when cinching. Been using this for 2 months now and seems to be working. I think it smells great. I just pour on her pellets and she just eats it right up. Can be a bit messy but I just scrape feed bucket once a week and she eats that all up too. Price isn't bad an I like the idea of doing something to avoid gastic ulcers. We will continue using this through show season.

              Comments about U-Gard:

              I have a 9yr old AQHA mare that was cinchy, paws at ground while under saddle, and was stretching or parking out after riding. After a month of Omeprazole treatment I put her on Ulcerguard, and she is absolutely 100% better, moving more freely, no paw or parking out anymore. She only pins ears a little for saddling, overall improved attitude. Improvements seen after 2 months total time. We maintain her on maintance dose, and after 4 months she is only getting better and better.
