Re: ulcers cause of picky eating



Worrying about Sashi & having a computer again I just came across this. You are such a godsend! Aloe juice is going to have to do for a couple days though.

Here is what I did with my very ulcer-prone gelding:

Full course of GastroGard
Soaked grass hay *almost* free choice
No grain (he is IR, so no grain anyway!)
Ulcergard (3 doses over 3 days) when traveling, stressed, or given NSAIDs

That's it. After nearly five years of suffering from ulcers, once we knocked them out, they do not seem to have returned. I think the key for him has been keeping small amounts of hay moving through him as much as possible, to keep the acid from building up in an empty stomach.
