    Default Blue Pop Rocks - Need them!

    New here, so hello! My name is Marie. My gelding Eeyore has been (what I believe to be Ulcers - classic symptoms). I've tried Abler's AbGard with no results. On day 22 and my gelding is just as touchy as ever still. Ears pinning, looking ready to attack and will kick. I would like to try the BPRs to see if they have any affect. If anyone has any over, I'd be more then happy to paypal desired amount. If this is not in the proper place, please excuse me! You can PM or e-mail me at FBody355@yahoo.com.

    Abgard and blue pop rocks are the same thing in a different delivery mechanism. Assuming you give the treatment dose you won't see any change from what you are currently using.

    Are you giving 3 sachets a day? This is the "treatment" dose.

    I have not used the BPR, I've been using the AbGard stable pack and administering the 5cc a day - the treatment dosage. I wanted to give the BPRs a go. Is there a reason why I just wouldn't be seeing improvement?

    Yeah, there is no way to prove the paste is buffered properly to prevent degradation of the omeprazole in the stomach.

    The granules are coated, which we know to be true because Hey101 did the experiment on the coating. I would be more comfortable relying on the granules than the paste.

    At this point you should have your vet come and look at him. It's likely that ulcers are not his issue.
