Description

Some horses are more prone to stress than others, but for many, even small changes in routine can potentially lead to gastric ulcers. Stomach ulcers in horses are more common than once believed. Studies have demonstrated stomach ulcers in over 90% of racehorses and around 60% of performance horses in various disciplines*. Before stress has a chance to cause gastric ulcers, use UlcerGard. Deliver targeted, effective medication during anticipated stressful times, such as traveling, competition, stall confinement and strenuous exercise. This allows for proven prevention of gastric ulcers in otherwise healthy horses who are at risk due to increased stress. UlcerGard is the only ulcer medication for horses proven to be safe and effective and approved by the FDA to prevent equine ulcers. Specially formulated to survive the acidic stomach environment allowing proper absorption. Blocks acid production at the proton pump regardless of stimuli.
