FAQ

How does ULCERGARD® work?

ULCERGARD® works by decreasing gastric acid secretion. Most stomach ulcers are caused by prolonged contact between acid and the lining of the stomach so by reducing acid, the formation of ulcers can be prevented.

Is ULCERGARD® safe?

Yes. In both field trials and placebo-controlled safety studies, no adverse events were observed when horses were treated as recommended with ULCERGARD®.

How is ULCERGARD® different from other stomach ulcer treatment?

ULCERGARD® contains a unique paste formulation that protects the omeprazole allowing it to remain stable and reach the site of absorption. ULCERGARD® is the only equine stomach ulcer prevention proven to be safe, effective and approved by the FDA.

How do I know ULCERGARD® is working?

The only way to definitively diagnose gastric ulcers is with an endoscopic examination. So, if you suspect your horse already has ulcers, work with your veterinarian to confirm their presence, location and severity to dictate appropriate treatment. In terms of ulcer prevention, we can assume that ULCERGARD® is working if the horse does not develop clinical signs of ulcers in the face of risk factors. Endoscopic exam can also be used to confirm the lack of ulcer development.

How do I give ULCERGARD® to my horse?
