    Default How to use Blue Pop Rocks?

    I'm sending an unbroke adult horse off to be started. He's had ulcers in the past with his broken jaw and has also been treated with Ulcergard when he was in the vet hospital for another thing.

    I want to send ulcer medication/preventative along with him, and I'd like to use the pop rocks.

    How many days should one treat with 3 sachets for treatment before switching to the one a day preventation regimen?

    I usually give 5 days before and after a stressful event. I give 2 sachets a day for my 1300lbs mare

    I give one pack a day starting the day prior to hauling, through the event in question or time away from home, and stop it the day after they get home. (for worry-wort types, not routinely)
