  • Anyone ordered from RaceHorseMeds company?

    I am looking to get their omeprazole/Misoprosto paste. My mare really needs to be treated for ulcers, however I don't have an extra $1K for Gastroguard unfortunately. My vet 'discreetly' told me about it, as it is not FDA approved yet half the price of Gastrogaurd.

    TIA!

    I'd use nexium before those guys. Look up their FDA warning letter about the amount of active ingredient in their omeprazole paste :-/

    Here's info on nexium:

      Yes, they are great and I've ordered several products from them including omeprazole. I haven't had any issues with them over the years and the omeprazole has impacted my horses no differently than Gastrogard.

      But I agree with Simkie that Nexium is a great alternative and even cheaper still.

        Thank you for the info! If I decide to go that route, where do I purchase Nexium and how much / how long do I feed it for?

            I've also never had any issues with them. Used both the omeprazole paste and misoprostol powder. Personally, I would now start with Nexium before going to RHM, because the "buyer beware" aspect of their products has always given me a bit of concern, despite never having had a problem. With Nexium, you know exactly what you are getting - my vet was also more open to discussion on Nexium, because there are indeed equine studies on esomeprazole. The RHM stuff, while "approved" drugs, did not sit will with my vet, though he did understand why I couldn't shell out for ANOTHER round of GG before paying off my last one

                Yes. I've had good success with the omeprazole paste.

                  I've ordered omeprazole from here and was not impressed. The paste became partial liquid and spilled out of the tubes in shipping (the company did replace these). However, the taste is horrendous (Yes, I might have taken the cap off with my teeth and got a little taste- and that is the most awful thing I've ever tasted). Horse would come running when she saw me with this (and she isn't picky). I've had much better luck with Abler "pop rocks."

                    Thanks for your input! Did it heal your horses ulcers though? Or did you see an improvement?

                      Try Abler as well. I have had a lot of success with the granules and the paste! Costs me about $5/day to treat.

                          Sorry- I meant to say horse would GO running when she saw me coming with this. I didn’t know for certain if the horse I was treating had ulcers, as I didn’t scope. I was just treating to see if it made a difference in behavior and it didn’t. I have treated with Abler pop rocks on a confirmed, scoped case, and it did clear them up after a few months.

                              I think I'm going to go with Abler as well. However, on their checkout page, the only way to pay is enter your bank account number and routing number.......no credit card or PayPal option. Is this sketchy? Do you remember if you did this?

                                Yeah, this is one of many reasons nexium is so attractive. No way am I doing that :-/

                                    I buy all my meds from Precision Pharmacy in Bakersfield , CA. I used their omeprazole for about 7 years on one of my horses. I used the paste, and the tube has 3 full doses, and is about $12 a tube. I have used their bute paste and powder, Banamine paste, ACE powder, etc., and it is all real good. They also have flavors. I turned my vet on to them and buys a lot from them. All their products come in several different forms, paste, powder, liquid, etc. They supply all the race tracks in CA.

                                        They're also international, and what they're doing is technically illegal. That might be a part of it?

                                        I've also used the Precision Pharmacy product with success. You'll need your vet's involvement, though--they don't sell without a script. We always used the omeprazole/ranitidine paste and it was, iirc, about $300 for a month of treatment?
