UlcerGard and GastroGard are expensive so lots of folks understandably look for cheaper alternatives. But please be very careful when choosing another brand. Some of the companies' products contain up to 135% *more* of the drug than stated on the label! Overdose can cause serious health problems and/or death. Please take time to check the list of manufacturers and the products at the link below. UlcerGard and GastroGard are, unfortunately, the only FDA-approved brands for use in horses at this time.
