UlcerGard® is the first and only medication approved by the FDA to prevent Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome.

Stomach ulcers in horses may lead to pain and discomfort, poor performance, damage to the stomach lining, and even death. Any horse exposed to stressful conditions such as travel, showing, training, racing, competition, barn routine changes, and even stall confinement may be at risk for developing stomach ulcers. In addition, horses can develop stomach ulcers in as little as 5 days.

UlcerGard® contains the active ingredient omeprazole which works to prevent the formation of stomach ulcers by suppressing stomach acid production. A single tube of UlcerGard® contains four preventative doses for horses weighing 600-1200 lbs. and each dose lasts 24 hours. You may purchase this highly effective product without the need for a veterinarian's prescription. Supplied as a single 4 dose syringe or as a pack of 6, 4 dose syringes.

We also offer GastroGard®, which is recommended for the treatment of equine gastric ulcers. Please note that GastroGard® requires a veterinarian's prescription.

Active Ingredients:

Omeprazole 2.28 g

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLLENT PRODUCT My youngest mare internalizes everything and was getting stressed in training and not turned out regularly where I had her boarded. When she wouldn't let me scratch her tummy (she loves her tummy scratched) and was having outbursts and not eating all her hay I suspected the start of ulcers. I started giving this to her and she felt better. Since then I also pulled her from training and moved her to a new boarding place where she is out 24/7. She is back to loving her tummy scratched and happy. Now I only give UlcerGard when I haul her in the trailer just to be safe she doesn't stress her tummy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIQUID GOLD This is liquid gold for anyone who's horse suffers from ulcers. My guy has chronic ulcers that flare up due to weather, hay changes, self induced stress, trailering, shows, lack of grass, medications, supplements ect. He has such a sensitive digestive system that the smallest trigger can set him off into a flare up which left untreated leads to a colic episode. I keep ulcergard on hand at all times and administer 1/4 tube whenever I feel a flare up might be on its way. He gets ulcergard any time he trailers and the entire time he is at a show. During the winter when he is not on grass and has limited turn out he goes through a tube a week. I swear by this stuff and will never be without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UlcerGard is a lifesaver! Never will my horse step foot on a trailer or undergo any other kind of stress without UlcerGard! What a life saver! I wish is was a bit cheaper, it's quite hard on the wallet when you need it, but it works, so I use it! FYI - I have shopped around, and SCAH is the cheapest place to get it ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great investment in health This healed our gelding's ulcers (we did the 30-day treatment per our vets' suggestion)... scoped before and after treatment, and the difference was amazing!! Not only could we see visible changes of our horse on the outside, but the scoping proved he was finally healed from the ulcers. He is now on an ulcer-prevention diet, but UlcerGard was a lifesaver!! We will always keep at least a few tubes on hand for times of stress for all our horses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I have used UlcerGard to treat and prevent ulcers on a mare that was naturally very nervous and prone to ulcers. I saw improvement within the first week of treatment. Although it may be pricey to use as treatment, it is effective and worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS! I always give a dose a day before we leave for a show or travel and everyday 'away' from home and it keeps my mare eating, drinking and generally more content!! Do not leave home without it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but Expensive When it comes to protecting or healing foregut ulcers, this product works. Unfortunately, it is extremely expensive, especially if a horse requires more than the 1/4-tube maintenance dose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat ulcer prevention This is the best ulcer prevention for hauling and competition. I like to dose my horse leading up to any hauling events, and I found the most competitive prices at Santa Cruz.
