Tips for gastric ulcer prevention ?

Tips for gastric ulcer prevention ?
You can also give them some tums before a ride to help support their gut while you ride
Ulcer guard(omeprezole paste), U-guard(daily pellet supplement), and I use a daily powder probiotic called G.U.T which is derived from licorice root and slippery elm bark(it works well for my horse) you can get all these supplements at smartpak😀
@anniiee totally agree. Max strength tums, 1000 mg. 10 of those is 10g. If your horse, like mine, hates them, stick them in his grain with water to hide them
Bicarbonate! Can feed a handful at a time and it really seems to settle the stomach. We feed it with a handful of chaff about 20 mins before we ride. Much cheaper to buy and works wonders with some of ours
My home remedy is ranitidine, the kind you get at Walmart. 10 pills 3x a day. Slower than gastroguard but cheaper.
Omeprazole is a great med that can be used every few days (talk to your vet) to prevent ulcers. It is the cheaper form of gastroguard. Also Acid FX is great!I use both on nervous TBs and they do a great job!
