    I agree. At least the vet recognized this...many vets don't ever suspect ulcers, even when the horse might be a classic case or statistically a very good candidate.

    And who knows, perhaps this...

    I would remove all burdocks from the planet, because I'm sick of picking them out of my horse's mane and tail!

    I'm not a vet, but have had a horse with ulcers (confirmed by scope) and her symptoms were the same as any other "colic" - when her ulcers were bad (i.e. the point just before we had her scoped), she...

    Time. Time, and Time.

    I had the same problem (started a thread about it here) and went from the pill to the NuvaRing for a year, and then Depo shot for a year, before settling on the Mirena IUD...

    OP, I've been in your shoes, although it was not a long distance relationship. We were together 5 years, started dating in high school.

    I would do 2 packs/day for the 30 days (treatment period), and then 1 pack per day for 2 weeks, then 1 pack every other day for 2 weeks. I'm sure there are others who would do it different, but...

    ALWAYS taper down the dose on any treatment that effects the amount of acid being produced to prevent an acid rebound.

    6.6 mg/kg

    The dose is supposed to be every 8 hours but I have experienced excellent improvement with my mare getting it every 12 hours (with AM and PM feedings).

    I also have a few dog sitting clients who pay well. Just made $400 in a week by taking care of their dogs and two horses but minimal work. Toss some hay, fill water, make sure they aren't injured,...

    3 alfalfa cubes? Or 3 lbs of alfalfa cubes?

    If the Purina Enrich 32 is a ration balancer, and he is an easy keeper, I'm not sure what the purpose of the oats and other items are, unless for added...

    If it's not seemingly helpful at an every-day administration, why are you going to every other day? Just stop wasting your money if it's not working and put that money towards pharmaceuticals.

    I...

    Even though we rent right now, all of the home care is done by us, so we're used to it. The landlord collects the rent check, and that's it. We are responsible for mowing, trimming, plowing,...

    It includes 5000 mg of MSM so I suppose its possible if your horse has an MSM sensitivity.

    Chronic pain can cause ulcers as well. Perhaps his discomfort from the DSLD and arthritis are what's causing the ulcer flareups. Adding Previcox, while "safer" than bute, could also be a contributing...
