Some horses are more prone to stress than others, but for many, even small changes in their 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 disciplines1. Fortunately, you can get ahead of equine gastric ulcer disease. Before stress has a chance to cause gastric ulcers, begin ULCERGARD.

ULCERGARD paste can be a valuable part of maintaining your horse’s gastric health. 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.

ULCERGARD does not require a prescription and can be easily administered by a horse owner. Give a daily dose of ULCERGARD at 1 mg/kg (1/4 tube for an average 1000 pound horse) on the back of the horse's tongue or deep in the cheek pouch. If any of the dose is lost or rejected, re-dosing is recommended. For horses 600 lbs to 1200 lbs, give one dose (1/4 tube) per day. For horses over 1200 lbs, give two doses (1/2 tube) per day.

 ULCERGARD can be used in horses that weigh at least 600 lbs. Not for use in humans. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children. In case of ingestion, contact a physician.
