    U-Gard® is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 260.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horse won’t eat! My horse won’t eat it. I have even tried giving it to my gelding that eats anything you put in front of him and he won’t eat it. I even soaked it with her grain and she won’t eat it like that either. Which is how I normally get them to eat powder stuff. I was using the pellets before. Wish I had never switched. Though I am sure it would work just fine if you horse will eat it. Unfortunately mine would not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic! I bought this about 3 weeks ago. Within 5 days my mare went from pinning her ears when brushing, extremely girthy and having an attitude when ridden to a pleasure to brush and ride. I only wish I would have started the supplement sooner! I suspected ulcers but wasnt positive before. This has made all the difference with her in a very short amount of time. Plus she loves the taste. I shake the feed scoop to make sure it coats the grain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doing its job perfectly! I truly love this product. My Otto has never shown any symptoms of ulcers, but knowing how prevalent they are, especially in tbs, I put him on this power as a preventative. That was nearly two years ago, and still no ulcer or gastric issues- it works perfectly for us AND he absolutely loves to eat this! He will eat the power straight-up raw then try to kiss my face with his pink-powdered nose! I also feel very calm how with some extra I have that after or before a stressful event I can give him an extra scoop to help with no harm done. Excellent product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! We get extremely harsh winters here in Montana and my older Thoroughbred is starting to have issues with stress through the constant changes in weather. I decided this year I would try to ease his stress-induced gut issues with ULCER guard. So far he has kept his weight and shine, his energy levels are normal, he seems to chomp his sides significantly less, and his coat looks thick and healthy! Worth the purchase and cant beat the price! (Info only - I buy the powder and he has no issue with taste or smell, he gobbles it right up)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great!!! I bought this product for my ottb, who was showing signs of ulcers. When selecting whether I should get the powder form or the pellet form, it was strongly suggested to me that I get the powder form, as it supposedly coats the stomach quicker and more effectively. After ordering it, It arrived quite quickly! I starting using it immediately, and my only complaint is that it is sooo messy! But it does make sense as to how it works so well. It coats everything it touches. The dosing was (I believe) 1 of the little scoops it comes with twice a day. Well, the barn I’m at feeds am supplements only, so I decided to just give 1 scoop 1 time a day. Within 5 ish days I noticed a HUGE difference, and after 9 days he was completely symptom free! After a few weeks I actually bumped it down to about 1/2-3/4 scoop per day, and it still makes a massive difference. If I miss a few days of it for some reason, he starts getting grouchy again. I 110% recommend this product. It is so great knowing my horse is comfortable and happy. :) :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Was using the pellets of the same product, found of the powder is much more effective. Very quiet, willing and easy horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps Stomach happy! Kept my horse on this twice daily during training due to be prone to ulcers and he’s doing great on it. No irritability, ready to work, finishing all meals. He’s happy and so am I

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my guy enjoy his grain again! After figuring out my gelding had ulcers I decided to give this a try. It has worked wonders. He now is back to eating and back in the ring! I'm now on my third bucket!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s ok Seemed to work ok, but I wouldn’t get the powder again. It practically explodes opening it and my horse didn’t seem to like it in his grain. He would snort and it would just go everywhere. He ate it though.
