In my experience, one of my horses had ulcers pretty bad. After having 3 episodes of impaction colic in a very short time I decided to get him scoped. The only way to truly know about ulcers is to get them scoped by a vet. He was on Gastro Guard for 2 months which yes is very costly but it takes the guessing game out of it all. I had him scoped again and his ulcers were healed. I use Ulcer Guard when we take him to shows and make any changes.
The biggest thing we changed was his feed. This particular horse now gets Soaked Timothy pellets 3 times a day. No more hay for him and he is doing great. I hope this helps.
