Our 30 year old gelding was diagnosed with ulcers 1 1/2 weeks ago. Given his age, we couldnt justify the $1000 for the prescription meds from the vet. Instead, with the vet's OK (with us knowing the risks) we put him on people Prilosec (the generic) at 9 pills twice a day. He is back to eating his full meals, loping around the pasture, etc.
My question now is about you Gard from Cortaflx which is a supplement that is supposed to be good for horses with ulcers. I was wondering if anyone had tried it.
We want him to be happy and healthy but at 30 years old, heroic measures just aren't practical.
