Question Something for a horse with a possible ulcer?

So I recently have had a problem with my horses stomach. It lasted for about a week and then the people who own my boarding barn decided to take him off his supplement (Tri-Lution). Within two days he had a drastic change and they did a little bit of research and we are wondering if he has a ulcer; they are very common with thouroughbreds I guess and he was showing some of the signs of it.

So on to my question...
Are there any natural dressings or supplements that I can give him? For heart health or a healthy coat? Maybe even joint health? Anything you would reccomend? Any specific brands you love?
Thank you for reading this!

Why did they take him off of his current suppliment?

1, you have to make sure you get your TB scoped. Once you get him scoped, you can get him on Gastro Guard or other remedies for Ulcers.

I have my TB on SmartGut through SmartPak and I also have him on Smart Digest Ultra.

They took him off of it because we couldn't figure out what was going on with him for a week. Then they decided (Im not any kind of expert on nutricion) to take him off anything that was man made. Just after one day hes gotton a bit better. Thus now I am looking for natural alternatives. Such as oils and things like that, so I could mix it with his grain.

I use TractGard for my TB, it's relatively cheap and seems to work just fine.

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

I watched a 'webinar' on the on ulcers... the vet on there said feed alfalfa daily as it acts like an antacid and soothes their tummys.

Go to and watch the webinars.. good info

Hello from the folks at Ulcer Repulser.

It is in fact all natural and healthy and carries no side effects and it is very cost-effective too. Canadian customs thus far have raised no concerns as everything is compliant.

For us and our many happy customers, the product has been a god-send and has worked better than everything else, even when the circumstances were very dire. JJ himself was the poster-boy for dire, and with treatment at $ 1,200 per month plus vet bills, we were all in a terrible dilemma. Our vet is thrilled.

JJ is now completely healthy and well, issues of digestion and stress are things of the past, it was this very situation that created the product and the company.

Following is one testimonial:

‘I found Jeremiah's Ulcer Repulser while doing more research on equine ulcers and decided to give it a try. The difference is like night and day.’

‘I know that Jeremiah's Ulcer Repulser made such a difference because it was started last. I had to make these changes slowly over time like any other feed change but I can say that for the first time ever she looks forward to eating. Her bucket gets licked clean every time and she carries on like a fool until her food is in front of her. Indies ’ appetite is so good now that she looks like she may ‘drop a foal’. We laugh at the fact that she may need to be cut back on food, I never thought that would be a problem for this mare. She always has hay in front of her and gets alfalfa cubes before she is ridden and to protect her stomach, but Jeremiah's Ulcer Repulser sealed the deal. She now goes out for 5-6 hours daily in a ‘big girl paddock’ and acts like a normal content horse. She is now back in full work and is once again a ROCK STAR. The spookiness that I thought was her just being a ‘hot TB mare’ is GONE. There are no more monsters in the corner or anywhere else for that matter. Indie will always be a sensitive mare, but now she is different horse.’

‘Friends have witnessed this transformation and want to start their horses on it too. I know it takes a little more time and energy to change the way we feed our horses, but we owe it to them. Jeremiah's Ulcer Repulser is affordable, effective and easy to use. Traditional medicines are great, but there are other ways to treat horses too. I can’t say enough about your product. Give JJ a kiss for me.’

If your horse has ulcers, or any GI issue or problem, or any behavioral issue that may stem from pain or discomfort in the GI tract, I can tell you that no one has ever been unsatisfied, returned the product, registered any complaint about its efficacy or done anything other than to want more. It is, as far as we can determine, the most effective, safest, least-costly, total GI product available anywhere from anyone for any price.

We are down for updates today (May 5, 2010) but the site will return shortly.

Very best wishes to you all, feel free to email with any questions.
