Rescue Horse Puts Weight Back On

This is a great example of a horse putting weight back on after using GastroElm Plus.  Once they start feeling better and eating normally, everything else falls into place.  We received this message from Michele about two months after she started using GastroElm Plus.

 

This is Q I rescued her about 8 months ago. She was 18 years old had severe ulcers and e would not eat anything that I purchased.   When I found GastroElm Plus, I started her on it morning and night. For the first 2 weeks I mixed the product with aloe juice and syringed it into her to make sure it coated her well then I started just adding the dry powder to her feedings. Within 3 days of giving this product Q started eating all her hay and grain. As you can tell she is gaining weight great. I was skeptical when ordering it but this product is absolutely worth it’s weight in gold. I am keeping Q on it from now on. Thank you for this product!

Elena Got Her Horse Back with GastroElm Plus

Our horse stories all start differently. However, the same for all of us, is a quest to keep our horses happy, healthy and comfortable. Cochise’ and my love story, started eight years ago when I impulse bought an eleven month old paint colt that I fell in love with at first sight. Getting him that young offered challenges and great opportunities. I got to really know him, especially since he lives at home with me. My relationship with him is most unique due to the ability to get him as a baby, assist with his gelding, train him in everything from cross ties to, hand walking down the road, bits and bridling, games, to riding in the woods, to trailering, self loading, hunter paces, dressage training, and the list goes on. He has an amazing work ethic. He WANTS to work. He WANTS the attention. He WANTS time with me. We have a connection, communication, understanding, and regard that I cherish. That said, he’s a thinker. He’s a beautiful concoction of boldness, brass, sweetness, affection, cunning, compassion, gentility, bullishness, insolence, bravery and grace, all rolled up into one amazing being. 

Sigh. I had some big changes in my life over the past three years which resulted in some big changes in his: boarding for the first time; me not living WITH him; then moving to a new farm with me, and then enduring the wettest, buggiest and hottest of summers ever — in this new setting. This was a totally new area for us. I had no idea what was coming or how to prepare for it.

Last summer, his disposition suddenly and dramatically changed. It was very alarming. I was so upset for him. It was a miserable summer. It rained every week. Can we say MUD? The heat, rain, humidity and bugs were worse than anything we had ever experienced before. He was suddenly cranky with furled eyebrows, and pursed lips. He was almost mean. He started cribbing.

I deduced that he probably started developing some stress over a gradual amount of time with all of these changes and reached a threshold where something started to really bother and or hurt him. Thinking of tummy issues first, I started researching gut-related reasons for sudden temperament changes and products therefor. My friend Rita told me about GastroElm Plus. I tried it and wow was I impressed, surprised and thrilled! It was a missing piece of a puzzle. I got my horse back! I prepare it five minutes before giving it and he gobbles it up! If you board, you can make up to a week’s worth and refrigerate it to either give yourself or ask your facility to include in your horse’s meals. It’s cost effective. Cochise is comfortable and once again back to himself as only I know him to be. I strongly endorse this product and thank the wonderful folks GastroElm Plus! Cochise will never be without it!

Thank you GasroElm Plus for giving me my horse back!

GastoElm Plus Helps Therapy Horses With Ulcers

A few months ago I was considering how I was, once again, going to have to purchase expensive ulcer medicine for my two thoroughbreds. While I was considering how much it would be, a GastroElm Plus ad popped up on my Facebook page. I scanned the comments and figured it was worth a shot (afterall it was much more cost effective). I had no idea I was getting a product that within 24 hours I would begin to see subtle changes in my horses and within 3 days they were completely back to normal. I was shocked.
 
 
 
At about the same time I was seeing these changes in my horses at home, we had one of our therapeutic riding horses get diagnosed with ulcers. As a small non profit ulcer treatment is quite costly for our program, I immediately ordered GastroElm Plus for our girl. After a month on it our vet came out yesterday to check her and she had no signs of ulcers. At this point we’re putting several of our program horses on this product because it clearly makes them more comfortable and gets rid of ulcers. However, it’s not just for ulcers, it has another added bonus, our program recently brought in a horse that had been severely malnourished, when I asked the vet what we could give him to get the most weight on the quickest, she immediately responded with “give him that Slippery Elm stuff to aid with digestive absorption”. Our program is so grateful to have come across this product, I’ve never used something that so dramatically makes a change in the treatment of ulcers.
 
Thank you so much! I hope you have a great week.

Barrel Horse With Ulcers

Thank goodness I found GastroElm Plus. I was at my wits end with my granddaughter’s barrel horse, Waylon. A beautiful gelding but with the ulcers and stomach concerns it was alarming to us that he would be fine one day and terrible the next. We made countless attempts trying different things but I prefer to try and stay as natural as possible. When I discovered GastroElm Plus, I was hopeful we found a solution.

 

 

We noticed a change within a day of starting him on it. The first two days, much to our surprise he ate and finished his bucket of feed. This alone was such an accomplishment considering prior to using the Gastro Elm Plus we were at the point of hand feeding him and forcing him to finish. Within a two week time frame he was back to his spunky self and working good again. His shiny coat has been an added bonus!

 

I’ve recently started my other gelding who is slightly older on it and couldn’t be happier with the results.

Using GastroElm Plus Prior To Horse Shows

One thing we hear quite often is a horse that seems to be fine on a day to day basis, but shows signs of anxiety, distress and other changes in demeanor when attending a horse show.  Other customers have commented that these types of changes occur when simply loading into a trailer or even tacking up.  Some horses (including ours) can go so far as displaying signs of colic after leaving for the day to attend training or a show.

In most cases these are signs of an underlying condition that is aggravated by excess stomach acid during periods of stress.  As in humans, digestive issues such as mild ulcers can be exacerbated in times of stress.  Even if your horse loves going to shows and gets excited it’s still a form of stress increasing the production of stomach acid.  GastroElm Plus can help to protect the stomach and entire digestive tract.  Simply give a tablespoon of GastroElm Plus prior to loading in the trailer and you can give another an hour prior to the show.  Many people also give a daily maintenance dose at evening feeding to prevent more serious digestive issues down the road.

Here is a note from one of our customers who recently started using it:

I bought GastroElm Plus for my gelding.  He was experiencing pain from ulcers which caused a decline in his performance.  He is a horse that has anxiety at times and this has helped tremendously.  He eats it all never leaving a spec 😁.  I am a barrel racer in South Florida and my horses are competing almost every weekend.  I started him on GastroElm Plus and by the 3rd day I noticed a change in him.  On the fifth day we went to a show and he performed one of his better runs placing out of 88 riders and showing no ulcer signs!

Thanks for making such a great product!

We hear lots of similar stories about how GastroElm Plus has helped horses feel better and perform better.  When the issues are in the cecum / hindgut it can take 2-3 weeks to start seeing results but these are issues that are often very difficult to treat.   Most owners will find that the horse’s demeanor improves, their energy level improves and they act more like they did in their younger days.

Nothing works for all animals (or humans) but overall we are extremely happy with the results we have seen over the past several years.  Read more about using GastroElm Plus for horses.
