A lot of human used medications are also commonly used for horses. In fact most are interchangeable but on a different dose spectrum. Our vet had us use a lot of over the counter medications such as aspirin to treat or help with treating certain symptoms after specific equine surgeries. Of course always use only with direct vet care.

If you have the time to dose them every 8 hrs, you can do it with walmart brand ranitidine (zantac). Ranitidine only blocks acid production for 8hrs tho. Omeprazole is the preferred drug, but you cannot crush it like you can the ranitidine. It has something to do with the outer coating and the actual drug has to make it to the stomach to work effectively. If you crush it, or the horse chews it, then it's not going to work. Unless you can get your horse to swallow 60 whole pills then ranitidine is your choice. Or, you can buy the ulcer guard.

300mg ranitidine per 100lbs every 8 hrs for about 2 months

Its very time consuming, but much cheaper than buying 7-14 days worth of ulcer guard @ $40/tube and 1 tube/day.

Be aware if you show.. I think paprika is the one that tests in a drug screen.

Is there anything else to prevent sand colic? It's hard to get metamucil in Europe :(
I also give my horses linseed (cooked!)...
