Lowers the amount of stomach acid, decreasing the risk of gastric ulcers.
Palatable flavor and easy to use syringe makes ULCERGARD® an easy way to keep your horse healthy.
Stomach ulcers may cause horses to exhibit a poor attitude leading to sub-optimal training and performance.
The only product that is FDA-approved for the prevention of equine stomach ulcers.
Gastric ulcers, sometimes known as Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS), are common in horses. They occur when there is a buildup of acid in the stomach that irritates the stomach lining. These ulcers can develop for a number of reasons, including stress, certain medications, changes in exercise, the type of feed a horse eats or problems with stomach acid. Typical symptoms of this condition are diarrhea, changes in eating behavior, frequent colic, a dull coat and changes in temperament. Veterinarians often use medications, such as proton pump inhibitors, to decrease the amount of acid produced in the stomach. Products like UlcerGard for horses can help prevent ulcers or EGUS from developing.
UlcerGard contains omeprazole, which is a type of proton pump inhibitor. Omeprazole works by lowering the amount of stomach acid, which decreases the risk of gastric ulcers and EGUS. Horses with higher risk factors, such as those that are prone to stress, can benefit from taking this supplement. UlcerGard comes in the form of a cinnamon-flavored oral paste that is given to horses with a syringe once a day. The cinnamon flavoring makes the product more palatable and helps ensure that it is fully ingested. Horses between 600 and 1,200 pounds should be given ¼ tube daily, while horses over 1,200 pounds should be given ½ tube daily.
Prevent equine ulcers in your horse with nonprescription UlcerGard. The oral paste is delivered in a syringe form that is administered to horses every day. The active ingredient in UlcerGard, omeprazole, works to suppress the stomach acids that cause ulcers in horses also prevents equine gastric ulcer syndrome, which can be a painful condition. Equine ulcers can occur if your horse tends to become stressed easily or is prone to stomach acid problems. UlcerGuard comes in a cinnamon-flavored paste for easy ingestion. Dosage during periods of stress is 1/4 tube daily for horses weighing between 600 and 1200 lbs. For horses over 1200 lbs, 1/2 tube daily is recommended. Note: This product does not ship to Australia.
This product is one of the best products we have ever used. It is like gold to us...

We had to move our horses to a new stable. One, a retired thoroughbred, has had stomach surgery and stresses easily.

Great Product by Christine from Cedarburg, WI02/14/2013
I give this to my horse whenever we go to clinics or shows. He gets nervous and this keeps his manure solid and the trips go smoother for him.

Prevention of Ulcers! by Cowrider from Addison, NY11/03/2012
My Vet recommended I start a 26 year old Arabian Mare on Ulcergard. About 7 days later, she began to eat so much better! I continued to dose the mare according to the directions. The mare is doing fantastic after 3 weeks! Great product and easily affordable with Entirely Pets!! Thank you very much!!!
We never go to the show without it! by Zipsmom from Glendale, AZ11/08/2011
Ulcergard has changed some of our show horses' behaviors dramatically. We use it for each & every show, and our vet, whose wife is a trainer, uses it himself on their show horses, starting the day before they haul out. Nothing else available has given us these results, and according to a recent article in Equus, it's the best product out there to reduce stomach acid.
great product! by momwulfe10/09/2011
really helped my horse that has had a stomach ulcer, got hime eating like a horse again!
Best price for a "must have" product! by PhillyLawyer from Philadelphia, PA04/10/2012
This the best price anywhere on UlcerGard - about $15 per tube less than the local tack store - and my order came very quickly. I also realized that I've been buying small animal products from EntirelyPets through Amazon.com, and have always been happy with the prices and services. I'll be ordering again for all my pets.
great by annette01/29/2013
my horse cannot live without it and you have made it affordable for us to help him
great product and price by kj10/05/2011
This product works for preventing ulcers in horses. My horse has not had his symptoms recur since I started using Ulcergard as a preventive before travel and shows. EntirelyPets shipped the order in a timely fashion, and they had a competitive price as well. I like the auto reorder option. That way I don't have to dig out my receipt to figure out who I ordered from last time. I can still research the price before allowing the order to refill automatically. This has been a successful online product purchase. I have not found this product available at local feed and tack stores.
Can't live without it! by ArabMom from US10/07/2010
My horse was diagnosed with ulcers 2 years ago and following a full month of Gastrogard, she now takes UlcerGard for prevention. We use this during times of stress, and before and after trailering. I had a 15% off coupon, so that combined with free shipping brought this 6-pack to $167! THANK YOU entirelypets for the great deal, and for the free samples of joint treats for the dogs. I paid an extra $2 for Priority shipping, and the package arrived the next day! Couldn't be happier!!

Cured my horse's ulcers by SRG from Frederick, MD03/12/2012
Same as GastroGard, an entire tube of UlcerGard was given to my mare for a month who I suspected had ulcers. Within five days she was markedly improved and I continued treatment for an entire month with fantastic results. Entirely Pets had the best price by far, coupled with a 15% off promotion, made the total treatment cost really affordable. Thanks, Entirely Pets! I have a new happy, healthy horse!!

Don't leave home without it by RedKED from Woodland, CA08/12/2012
My horse gets a dose anytime he gets on the trailer, otherwise he's clearly uncomfortable through his back and abdomen, nervous, and usually tries to buck me off at our destination. This is a great preventative!
Always Great Service by Mary311 from Atlanta, Ga05/22/2013
Fortuneately I don't have to use Ulcergard regularly, but I like to have enough on hand if needed. Entirely Pets has good deals and fast shipping.
Very nice follow-up, good product. by europe02/11/2013
Something went wrong with my payment which was handled very friendly and properly.
Shipment to Europe was performed within two weeks without any problems, great to know that I can buy my pet products here and have them send to my overseas home without any effort!
Great product and best price by Jmp12/30/2012
Great product and best price, really helps my mare during stressful times.
Worth its weight in gold! by Justin Amateur02/23/2012
Ulcerguard has made a world of difference to my horse. It is not cheap by any means but without it we would not be able to train and compete and my hrose would be miserable. So the expense is worth it. There are a lot of ulcer supplements and medications but this is the gold standard.
great product by wickedseis from midland, tx03/19/2013
product works great for stomach ulcers on horses, it has done miracles on my horse.
If your horse has ulcers....... by T's Mom02/20/2013
......or is a good candidate for ulcers - like mine is, this works. It's currently the only FDA approved treatment/maintenance that can be purchased without going through a vet. So I look for the best price - always!!! It's never cheap!!!
