Product Description

Wondering how you can help the many animals in need after the recent natural disasters across the country?  Simple!  Just add one of the selected, discounted relief donation products to your cart and Arenus will MATCH it with a second product!  Both the discounted product you purchased and the one matched by Arenus will be sent directly to partner organizations providing care for homeless and injured animals. 

When horses are stressed, their digestive systems take a toll.  They can colic, develop diarrhea, lose weight and condition or even develop ulcers.  Natural disasters are some of the most stressful situations a horse can face during their lifetime and, for the caretakers of these horses, digestive management is key.  By donating Assure Guard to the rescue efforts, you can be sure you are doing your part to prevent digestive upset in these displaced horses and give them the best chance of weathering the storm without added complications. 

  • Assure Guard combines the full benefits of the Assure family’s patented formulation with calcium carbonate to soothe and prevent ulcers.
  • Assure Guard horse ulcer supplements 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 horse ulcer supplement 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 supplement 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 horse 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.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

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.
