I am really kicking myself for not taking before/after photos but my horse looks INCREDIBLE after starting him on the bentonite clay. He is an appendix who has always been high anxiety and I suspect had ulcers long before I got him. However, it was never a serious issue and I chalked his cinchy attitude and ribby stature up to the crabby gelding he was. He was always slow to eat his grain, as long as I had him, so I always assumed he was just a slow eater. All in all, he was always checked off by my vet as a healthy horse. Last year, we took a trip to South Dakota to camp, which was a stressful trailer 14 hour ride. While there, he dropped quite a bit of weight and was merely picking at his grain. Once home, I upped his feed, which helped only slightly. He was shown heavily by a 4-H girl and at the end of the season, was looking worse than he ever had. When I had his yearly teeth float, I explained all the symptoms to my vet and she suggested having him scoped for ulcers. She explained the treatment with ulcergard afterwards and when calculated, it would come to a whopping $1500 for treatment. I do all I can to take care of my animals but for me, that was going to be a financial strain. If it had to be done, it had to be done...but I wanted to do some research first. Someone suggested clay to me and I immediately purchased it. In a month, I started to see a difference. By month two, he was looking better than he ever had. I SWEAR by the bentonite clay for ulcers and have suggested it to every single person I know. I've used it on others I suspected had ulcers and give a little extra when we're going into a stressful situation. I attempted to use one other cheaper product that did not hold up whatsoever. He is no longer cinchy, holds on weight, and scarfs down his grain. For 8 years, I assumed he was just naturally grumpy horse - this last year he has shown me he is so much happier. Not to mention, this product has saved me $$$$ and spared my horse of all the chemical products I was referred to initially. As long as I have my gelding, this will be in my feed room. Thank you from me (Emily) and from Eli!
