Ulcergard at a 1/4 tube is the "preventive" dose. It's not something I'd use everyday as a preventative especially given the price per tube.($35 for Ulcergard. The compounded omeprazole from Race Horse Meds or similar sites are about $15)
How I was told and use Ulcergard as a preventative measure, like you're looking to do, is giving 1/4 tube (on an empty stomach) a couple days before a long haul, show etc, during the show and taper off a day or two afterwards.
I don't think there is a risk of causing a huge increase in acid after stopping use after a couple days at the preventive dose as there is with full healing regimen.
Ulcergard is a medication (omeprazole) that inhibits acid production while Daily Gold is not a medication but bentonite clay that coats the stomach much like the UGard pink powder.
