Frequently Asked Questions


Q  How do I feed my horse UlcerAid?
A  UlcerAid is in a powdered form, add to your horses evening grain and then moisten the entire meal. When mixed with water (or moisture from the horses own system, drinking, or what you might add to their meal), this powder swells to form a healthy digestible nutritious gel which acts to protect the entire digestive system.

Q  What is the duration of treatment for my horse with UlcerAid?
A  Initial use of UlcerAid would be once per day as a part of the horse's evening meal, for a minimum of 90 days. However acute or dire gastrointestinal issues or ulcers should be treated twice each day in the morning and evening meal for the first 2 - 3 weeks.

Q  Why as a part of the evening meal and not the morning feed?
A  Because our horses eat more during the day than through the night, they are more likely to have less food in thier stomach at this time. Also, because they may lie down to sleep or to rest, stomach acid can splash or slosh onto the horses upper stomach area which is not protected by the same mucosal layer found in the horses lower stomach. UlcerAid will protect your horses' stomach and digestive tract over these more dangerous hours.

Q  What if my horse has an extreme or acute problem?
A  Acute or dire gastrointestinal issues or ulcers should be treated twice each day in the morning and evening meal for the first 2 - 3 weeks. UlcerAid is non-toxic and can be added to your horses' morning and night feed until the acute situation has passed, then the interval can be adjusted to the more average use of once per day. UlcerAid is healthy for your horse and poses no problem with long-term use, unlike chemical preparations.

Q  Does UlcerAid have any dangerous drug interactions?
A  We are not aware of any dangerous drug interactions. However, because UlcerAid provides protection to the gastrointestinal system, it is possible that it could slow or interfere with the absorption of some undefined medications, although this is not an established fact. For this reason, we recommend if possible, that medications be given at any other feeding.

Q  Why UlcerAid?
A  UlcerAid effectively attends to equine ulcers. It is totally natural product with NO added chemicals.

Q  What is the difference between the two formula's?
A  Pregnant mare formula contains NO fenugreek - it is possible that fenugreek can have a hormone effect so caution is always called for with both pregnant mares and foals.
