I've fixed all of the other issues as far as diet.... But $500 is a lot of money for something that isn't permanent. Ick!

$55 in front shoes $80 with pads (which is a good price! But still) $35 for isoxuprine, $35 for Smartflex Senior, $75 + for feed not including hay a month is ALOT of money....If you choose Rantidine.. not only do you have to give it every 6 hours or so.. that's $30-60 a month additionally and isn't proven to CURE the current ulcers.

That is approx $250 a month in supplements and care! For a parrot mouthed OTTB with pins in one fetlock. No wonder the owner practically wants to GIVE me the horse.

I also read that up to 90% of race horses are thought to have ulcers.... a rep from the CANTER rescue said that they feed 10lbs of strategy plus a fat supplement. Oh My! I feel bad for those horses...
