Question:

i was told he has stomach ulcers and the vet said i need this...Homeoanimal brand,,really there nothing just as good to use here

Answer:

I would really need a LOT more information to really advise you about this (age, what are his symptoms, how long has it been going on, how were the ulcers diagnosed, what does his blood work look like, what do his x-rays look like, etc etc etc.) so consult your veterinarian, who has accesss to all of that information and more, for the best advice.

Question:

Hi my horse has front and hind ulcers and i am currently treating them but I was wondering if it is ok to ride and lunge still.

Answer:

I am solely a small animal veterinarian (just dogs and cats) so consult a large animal veterinarian for the best advice about your horse. If it can't wait until your veterinarian opens, you can speak directly to large animal veterinarians on platforms like Justanswer.com for a small fee.

Question:

Hi, we got a pony about 6 weeks ago and had her vet checked and everything was good. A few weeks ago she started becoming skiddish and her lower part of her belly is sensitive to the touch, while brushing, and sometime putting on her girth. She know bites doing these things when before she did not. I started to think maybe a ulcer? Our trainer said to buy over the counter Omeprazole rather than spending so much with Gastroguard. Will these work? I was also starting her on a daily probiotic. Can i due damage by treating her for an ulcer if she didnt have one, since I never had her scoped to be 100% sure.

Answer:

We are solely small animal veterinarians, so consult a large animal veterinarian for help with your horse. JustAnswer.com is a great place to hook up with a veterinarian immediately - they charge a small fee.
