that's very true, Poppy, and something to think about. I'm going to try to get permission to atleast do a 1-2 week trial run of the bark and aloe...its not like it's going to make her any worse. If they just don't let me do it though, I might try switching to UlcerGuard or something similar. The only problem that I"m running into though is that almost all of the medications (synthesised, anyways) have nearly exactly the same ingredients. They're just called different things or have different doses. Right now she's on 1000 mg and I'd hate to use much more than that.
I'm also looking at suppliments, and the local tack store owner showed me something called G.U.T. Supposively it reduces the acid in a horse's body, but unfortunately it doesn't sound like it works very well if it isn't fed atleast four times a day. Our horses get two grain meals a day, then free range hay, since we don't have any live-ins on the farm...or paid staff members.
Another option is that I could get a general suppliment such as Grand Complete, or Omega GRANDE- which actually has rice bran, flax seed, etc in it already.
