UlcerGard® - Help Prevent Ulcers in Horses

        Babe gets nervous at horse shows.  I start Ulcergard® two days before we leave and continue it throughout the show. 

         Ulcergard® is available without a prescription and is a preventative.  (GastroGard® is a treatment and only available through a vet.)

     • UlcerGard® New non-prescription preventive for Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome
     • Contains omeprazole, which suppresses acid production in a horse's stomach
     • Effectively prevents the onset of ulcers
     • Cinnamon flavored

      Merial(R) UlcerGard(R) To help prevent an outbreak of ulcers you can feed your horse UlcerGard(R). Ulcers are caused by radicals fluttering in the horse's body. Clinical symptoms of stomach ulcers include: poor appetite, loose stools, poor coat and performance. Omeprazole, the main ingredient in UlcerGard(R), suppresses acid production, stopping pain and discomfort before they occur. Just 1mg/kg of omeprazole per day for 28 days effectively prevents the onset of ulcers in horses exposed to stressful conditions.
