Back in January of 2017 I noticed that my mare was no longer eating on the road. She used to eat anything and everything you put in front of her so her not eating quickly became a concern of mine. I tried using a different brand that offered gastric support and it never worked. So in February I had her seen by my vet who said she was 150 pounds underweight (she was getting 2 scoops of quality grain, free choice hay, and a different brand of gastric support supplement), he had me run an ulcer treatment through her (omerprazole), switch feeds and put her on MVP's Gastro-Plex for additional gastric support. Within 45 days i could see a drastic change in both her body condition and personality. she now drinks and eats on the road and stands tied at the trailer calmly. MVP helped me get my horse back to running better then ever!
I battled with gastric issues for years with my horse and was going to retire him at only 17 after the season end last year. I tried countless things and still struggled to get into the gate every time. He'd climb fences, walls, and even tried climbing up the hood of a truck once. Everyone knew when I was up to run just by the sound of the ruckus at the gate. I was told about Gastro-Plex in October and the paste during a whole weekend, and as the weekend went on getting in the gate became easier each time. By the end of November we were going in the gate with minimal issues, so I was sold. I started him on the daily pellets and am getting ready to start the new season and I see a dramatic improvement in his attitude while working the pattern at home and I made a practice run the other day and had no issues. I am grateful for this product and am looking forward to getting more seasons out of my horse now. Thank you MVP!!!
Both my mares love this product! It helps them in times of stress to keep their stomachs settled! We love our MVP!
I have tried every gastric support supplement under the sun and this one wins hands down! Very palatable, no wasted crumbs in the bottom of the bucket. My horse has never looked better!
I was previously using another "gastric support supplement" from another vendor when I found out my young mare had severe ulcers. During the course of her veterinary medical treatment with omeprazole, my veterinarian recommended that I start her on this product as well for gastric maintenance. While not able to know for sure if the results and change in this mare were a result from the GastroGard/UlcerGard or this product or both - there is an extreme difference shown in this mare for the better. As I was so pleased with the progress of my mare, I decided to switch one of my geldings off of the "other product" onto Gastro-Plex as he was showing signs of not appreciating being touched on his sides nor on his sternum. After two weeks of this product he no longer pinned his ears or tried to bite when brushing or touching his sides and showed improvement when touching his stenrum. It has now been about 4 weeks into this product and today he did not pin his ears or try to bite when brushing him - ANYWHERE! I strongly recommend this product. In fact, I am switching all of my horses over to this product.
