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 was voted "Number one ulcer feed supplement" by The Horse Journal and proclaimed Equine product of the year.
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 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.

            Comments about U-Gard:

            my horse was cribbing extensively, broken wires on stall, grabbing upper wood rail of pasture, dipping hay in his water. The previous owner had rings put in his front teeth, that did work. When I got him, I put a miracle collar on him and started u-guard as a digestive aid. He does not crib as often, the only problem I have is with the miracle collar thinning his forelock; even with the fleece on.

              I have an older gelding showing signs of ulcers due to use of bute. I tried this because of price and have been happy with the results so far. I feed the powder with soaked beet pulp and even tho he can be sensitive to medications in his feed he eats this with gusto. I have used the gastrogard on other horses but the cost is too high to use on a regular basis. So far his aggression at feeding time is gone his grumpy mood is minimal and he is acting like his old self. Great product for a great price I will continue to order this product.
