What have you used? Is UlcerGuard (omeprezole) safe?

I haven't used this for treating ulcers, but I used it for prevention. Both my mares were on GastroPlex from MVP during and after pregnancy. Prior to this one of them got salmonella and was very sick for 10 days. My vet asked if I had her on any gastro supplement support. I said no. I then put both of mine on it and will always doing it going forward. If you are interested in this product I can get you an intro offer. Message me for details. :

I used oxyulcer on my pregnant mare. It works great. All oxygen products are safe for pregnant mares.

Equi-sure is 100% natural and will not hurt the mare or baby. We have successfully used it on Broodmares, our stallion and its a staple for us during weaning time.

We are doing equisure and UlcerGuard. Just a guess at a diagnosis so we will see if they make a change in her spirit/attitude.

Reviving this thread, has anyone else have issues with a pregnant mare with ulcers? What did you use?

I've got a mare who would be about 5 months pregnant (not confirmed yet, uterus is tucked behind pelvis and out of reach, u/s after breeding said open, but we're second guessing that, she also has a silent heat, so that isn't a way to tell with her either), but she's colicking frequently (4x in last 4 or so months, was once about a month after being home, waited 2-3 weeks, another colic, then again a week later, and then we've gone over a month until this last Monday). Has been on Forco for a little over a month, seems to colic after she is worked (she's mostly being ponied now) and this last time she was upset about wood being moved around. Movement seems to be the key set off factor. Vet and I both are confused as to what is causing the episodes, she passes regular manure and he doesn't believe stones, so we both came to gas, but Monday he didn't hear much gas when she was tubed. Colic ranges from throwing herself against panels and trying to shoulder you out of the way to go down, to just being uncomfortable and kicking at belly/trying to roll. It was a 4 hour trip to drop her off to be bred, she stayed for about a month, and then a 4 hour drive home, so I'm thinking ulcers are very possibly playing a roll. She has had ulcers in the past, she went off feed and after a few days of cool gut, started eating again. Now I'm thinking she may need something for them again, but am not sure what is safe. This is a mare who out of the 6 years I've owned her, has never been one to colic, so this is very out of character for her.

Some ulcer medications have Misoprostol in them. Absolutely do NOT use misoprostol in a pregnant mare.

I believe Equisure is for hindgut. Ritetrac is for stomach AND hindgut, which may be more geared toward stomach ulcers and overall digestive health.

JMHO, Talk to your vet.

I work for a small animal vet, and 2 of our relief doctors also do Equine, and both of them advised Omeprazole. I just can't afford that long term, so needed ideas. I can't afford to scope at this time, so a course of Omeprazole treatment is most likely where I'll start.

Equi-sure is now called Zesterra and it is safe for broodmares and foals. It is not just for hind gut. I will not be without it in the barn or trailer.

Are we referring to the same product? It is still marked as equishure on the maker's website and Smartpak. It is a time released buffer for the hindgut. I believe you may be referring to a different product.

There is a product called EquiSHURE and there was once a product called EquiSURE, but EQUISURE is now called Zesterra.

Correct! I was talking about Equisure only because that is the spelling that was used
There was so much confusion over Equishure and Equisure (as well as another company using Equisure) that the name was changed to Zesterra :)
