    Default ulcers?

    Our horse has gotten very girthy and I was wondering if he has ulcers. Is there something I can try and see if he responds before putting him on Gastrguard?

    A search here will likely give you a few hours of reading material.

    Yes, there are a whole lot of different things you can try before putting him on gastrogard, from Maalox or Tums directly before riding, to an antacid branded for horses to a greyish market omeprazole product.

    But this topic has been discussed TO DEATH and you're really going to be better off reading what's been posted before and then coming back with any questions you might have than asking people to rehash the topic for the eleventy-billionth time

    You can start here:

    http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/search.php?searchid=395543


    If the link doesn't work (I'm not sure how long links to searches stay active) do the following:

    Click the "search" button at the top, and then click "advanced search"

    Keywords: ulcers

    I've been researching this but do have a question. How many tums and when do you give them?
