My OTTB has ulcers (big surprise, I know) and the trainer says I need to use Gastroguard for 28 days for treatment and then probably 1/4 tube daily for maintenance. The trainer has gobs of money and I don't, so let's talk reality.
I've researched a little but I'd like to know from real people what length of Gastroguard treatment people have used and had good luck with. In product reviews I've read some people doing 2 weeks and it working just fine. I'm sure the company that makes it would prefer I use the full course (for around a grand) but that doesn't mean that it's necessary.
Also, what did you do after treatment to prevent them from coming back? I've heard sucralfate and ranitidine as well as supplements.
We have moved him to outdoor board, where he is much happier and can eat more evenly through the day. I'm just afraid I'm going to spend $1000 on treatment and then the ulcers will just come back and it will be a waste. He's going to be so much happier and comfortable if we get rid of them.
Thanks in advance
