If you think or know your horse has ulcers then you may need this product. But you also may not know that your horse, any horse, wild, domestic, stalled or pastured, naturally grazes with head low for 20 hours a day. Your horse is equiped with a small, two section stomach that empties every “45 minutes”.
When a horse does not have access to forage/roughage for more than 2 hours, gastric acids in the lower stomach build up, causing unbearable pain, burning the stomach lining, and eventually creating ulcerous damage.
No matter what your feeding schedule is, grazing hay or grass for 85 percent of the day is the most important function for the mental and physical well-being of the domestic horse! Especially if you want to keep your horse's stomach happy, ulcer free and encourage natural biome growth throughout the GI Tract!
