Assure Guard

Quantity:

Product Description

  • Assure Guard combines the full benefits of the Assure family’s patented formulation with calcium carbonate to soothe and prevent ulcers.
  • Assure Guard can be added to your ulcer treatment regimen to promote optimal GI function throughout the duration of treatment and prevent ulcers from recurring when continued in a maintenance protocol.
  • The combination of Assure Guard and Assure Plus has been research proven to address a multitude of equine digestive conditions like chronic colic, diarrhea and poor body condition; it’s the GI maintenance program of choice for veterinarians nationwide.
  • Assure Guard is available in a variety of sizes to meet the needs of every horse and budget.

Assure Guard has been a long-standing tool for many veterinarians and is recommended for management of a variety of equine digestive challenges.  Like the rest of the Assure family, Assure Guard is formulated to prevent colic, diarrhea, weight loss and promote optimal digestive function but, with the addition of calcium carbonate, it also addresses gastric and colonic ulcers. 

Traditional ulcer treatments can slow acid production within the stomach [1] thus preventing proper breakdown of your horse’s feed intake and allowing undigested feedstuffs to reach the hindgut.  In turn, this can lead to colonic ulcers, potentially causing a larger digestive issue, or recurrence of gastric ulcers.  Research has shown that adding a quality probiotic to your horse’s ulcer treatment regimen provides a constant influx of live microbes [2], ensuring proper breakdown of feed throughout the treatment period. 

Additionally, a 144 case, field trial study evaluated the combination of Assure Guard and Assure Plus in a variety of chronic, GI conditions across the United States.  Using this combination the trial resulted in the resolution of 80% of chronic diarrhea cases, 100% of chronic colic cases, 80% of gastric ulcer cases, 100% of sand accumulation and 94% of weight loss or poor body condition cases [3].

Whether you’re looking for general digestive support or to boost your ulcer treatment results and prevent recurrence, Assure Guard is your answer.  When paired with Assure Plus, this patented supplement provides the very best, research proven results available.

For general digestive maintenance or management of colic, loose stool or poor body condition feed horse one, level scoop daily per 1100lb of body weight or follow dosing chart.

When feeding Assure Guard with Assure Plus for additional or rapid hindgut stabilization or sand removal, it is recommended to split the daily dose of Assure Guard with each grain meal (i.e. if horse receives 1 scoop daily, give ½ scoop with morning grain and ½ scoop with evening grain) and feed Assure Plus in the evening. See Assure Plus directions and dosing for specific requirements.

If palatability issues arise, add small amounts of water, oil or molasses to encourage acceptance.

It is recommended that you consult your veterinarian for specific recommendations prior to adding Assure Guard, or any supplement, to your horse’s daily regimen.

  1. A life saver for a weanling!

    Posted by Mary on May 17th 2017

    If you have a foal/weanling who has exhibited signs/symptoms of colic, the Arenus Assure Guard has saved my baby's life. There is nothing else available on the market that is safe and effective in a baby. I'm so glad I started with Arenus.

  2. Great product!

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 6th 2017

    I love Arenus products :-)

  3. Assure Guard

    Posted by Jen on Oct 17th 2016

    My horse exhibits ulcer symptoms-stretching, not feeling his usual curious self. Assure Guard in the morning with some alfalfa, both prescribed by my vet has him ulcer free.

  4. Great product

    Posted by Ruth on Aug 8th 2016

    I started using the Assure Guard after my mare's colic surgery and it has been phenomenal. I credit it with the resilience of my mare to withstand an unfortunate miscommunication in feeding. Somehow, she ended up with 3 x the amount and a completely different feed then she was supposed to be getting. Assure Guard definitely helped her from colicking again.

  5. Fantastic Product Line

    Posted by Margie J. on Apr 12th 2016

    I am using this product (Assure Guard) as GI maintenance on a horse that was cured of his sand accumulation by Assure Plus! His diarrhea which had been off and on for 2 years is finally totally cured and I feel confident that his GI tract is in good shape. I had tried several other psyllium products but never had the results of this. Assure Guard is very palatable and he loves it (smells like black licorice to me) . The price is more reasonable and I will continue to have him and maybe some of his pasture mates on this continually. Would recommend this highly to any horse owner that has concerns about digestive issues.

  6. good product

    Posted by JR on Mar 30th 2016

    I really like the product but the price increase makes it not the best value. Other products are now competitive, I may shop around.

  7. A Must-Have for Any and Every Horse

    Posted by Lisa on Mar 22nd 2016

    Assure Guard by Arenus has quickly become an essential supplement for all of my horses. I've seen first-hand how it transforms horses from ragged to healthy looking. Whether you have a horse in the midst of serious competition or a trail riding buddy, Assure Guard is the key to a happy and healthy companion. Not to mention, the research Arenus puts into the development of all its products is astounding. If you're questioning if Assure Guard, or any of the Arenus products for that matter, is right for you and your horse, don't. Give them a call and they'll give you all the proof you need.
