Product Description

Shop a top-rated equine digestive care solution. Soothing and powerful, Assure Guard offers a solution to the most challenging digestive health problems in an effective, daily granular formula.

Does your horse suffer from painful ulcers? Chronic digestive issues? Poor performance and overall health? Assure Guard is the answer.
 
About 60-70 percent of a horse’s immune function comes from digestive health. Horses with ulcers and chronic digestive health issues suffer poor overall health, decreased performance, and continual pain and discomfort. But it’s a little known fact that horses with gastric ulcers often suffer from colonic ulcers. These horses need a complete formula that addresses and soothes tough digestive health issues like colonic ulcers.
 
Assure Guard is the solution to maintain digestive health and combat tough problems like colonic and gastric ulcers, colic, diarrhea, weight loss, and more. Assure Guard is the supplement of choice for horses going through ulcer treatments. Traditional ulcer treatments can stop acid production within the stomach. This allows more undigested feedstuffs to reach the hindgut and cause or contribute to the digestive disturbance including colonic ulcers. Research has proven that adding a quality probiotic to your horse’s ulcer supplement regimen provides a constant influx of live microbes, ensuring proper digestive health and breakdown of feed throughout the treatment period.
 
Assure Guard provides gastric support without shutting down acid production. It works to stabilize and condition the entire digestive tract for a long term, balanced approach. Antacids, enzymes, and probiotics work to support the stomach, small intestines, and colon while psyllium adds extra stabilization of the hindgut. Assure Guard can break the cycle of digestive disturbances that lead to recurrent gastric ulcers. It’s the most complete combination for total digestive tract conditioning.
 
Arenus is proud to offer Assure Guard as a daily equine digestive care supplement for your horse’s most challenging digestive health needs.
 
 

CHOOSE THE RIGHT EQUINE DIGESTIVE CARE SUPPLEMENT

Assure Guard can be fed as a standalone digestive maintenance supplement for horses with gastric challenges. We recommend using it in combination with Assure Plus for more effective gastric and hindgut health support.
 
The Assure Guard and Assure Plus System is the right choice for:
  • Horses with moderate to severe digestive issues such as recurrent gastric or colonic ulcers, colic, diarrhea, and sand accumulation.
  • Horses in training, competition, or high-stress environments.
  • Horses undergoing or recovering from traditional ulcer treatments.
  • Older horses with severe diarrhea or constant digestive issues.
  • Owners that want a customizable solution designed to maintain digestive health and tackle tough gastric and hindgut challenges as needed.
 

KEY BENEFITS

  • Soothing ulcer relief: Ulcer treatments can wreak havoc on any horse by throwing off the normal balance of the digestive system. Assure Guard soothes the system and prevents recurring ulcers to keep your horse feeling healthy and comfortable.
  • Improved performance and wellness: Any digestive issue can disrupt your horse’s performance and comfort. Cinchy and irritable horses often have underlying digestive health problems. Ulcers are painful and make travel, training and riding a nightmare for your horse. Having a calm and happy digestive system keeps your horse relaxed and focused.
  • Whole digestive support: Assure Guard works to support the entire digestive tract from the stomach through the hindgut where additional gastric conditioning is required.
  • Flexible, targeted coverage: Use Assure Guard daily for cost-effective maintenance of difficult gastric problems. Pair with Assure Plus during the loading period and one week out of each month for maximum benefits. Add Assure Plus during times of stress for additional support when your horse needs it most.
 

FEATURES

Our research-proven formula offers a unique delivery system that’s incomparable to any other ulcer or equine digestive care supplement on the market. The ingredients work to balance the foregut and the hindgut to provide maximum digestive health support.
 
  • Powerful, effective formula: Assure Guard contains our unique blend of pre and probiotics, psyllium, gastric buffer, digestive enzymes, yeast and calcium carbonate to sooth and restore balance to the digestive tract. The formula prevents future and recurring digestive problems.
  • Unmatched ulcer protection: Typical ulcer medications can stop acid production and cause naturally occurring digestive enzymes to die off. This can allow undigested feedstuff to move through the digestive tract causing hindgut ulcers or perpetuating the occurrence of gastric ulcers. Adding a quality ulcer supplement like Assure Guard can boost the effectiveness of treatments and ensure your horse’s digestive tract is constantly replenished with live microbes to maintain optimal function.
  • Gastrointestinal Stabilizing Technology (GST): Exclusive, proprietary technology ensures that live microbes are protected from the acidic environment of the stomach for safe delivery to the hindgut. Assure Guard and Arenus digestive aids are the only products with GST.
  • Effective maintenance and control: The trusted pairing of Assure Guard and Assure Plus addresses ulcer and serious digestive concerns while maintaining overall digestive health.
  • Clinically proven system: A field trial study evaluating horses with a variety of serious GI conditions revealed that 90% of recurrent colic cases and 80% of chronic ulcer cases were resolved using the combination of Assure Guard and Assure Plus. 100% of cases were significantly improved.
  • Butyrate: Also known as butyric acid, butyrate is a critical volatile fatty acid (VFA) produced in the hindgut of all horses. The high quality, high purity psyllium in Assure Guard has been shown to naturally and effectively increase the production of butyrate. Butyrate is critical to colonocyte health and regeneration, and important in the prevention and reduction of gastrointestinal inflammation.
  • Vet recommended formula: Assure Guard has been a standby tool for many veterinarians fighting digestive health challenges. Vets around the country trust the patented digestive health formula to relieve ulcers, colic, loose stool, weight loss and more.
  • Recyclable packaging: Eligible product for “Ride for a Green World” initiative. Save money while helping the environment!
 
We’re confident that our products work. That’s why we offer an unmatched program where you can receive up to $10,000 in colic reimbursement benefits. Learn more about CAP and enroll your horse here!

  1. Gasy No More

    Posted by Janet Hill on Mar 6th 2018

    My mare has been "gassy" for a long time, gas-colicked in mid January. after only a short ten days on Assure Guard, she is gassy no more! LIKE NONE!

  2. Saved the day

    Posted by Becky S. on Feb 18th 2018

    Recommended by my Vet for gut issues, along with Assure Plus. My giant "baby" seems much more comfortable. Saw a noticeable difference in two weeks.

  3. a must-have

    Posted by Dawn B. on Jul 7th 2017

    After my horse had a bout of gas colic, my vet recommended I supplement him with Assure Guard. I started immediately, and I've never looked back since. He's been through occasional stress events (introducing new horses into the herd,) sudden weather changes, and lush spring pasture grass every year, but he hasn't had more than one gassy belly ache since being on Assure Guard. I even had him scoped for ulcers, and his gut was perfectly clean and ulcer-free. I might experiment with other nutritional supplements, but I'll never vary the daily Assure Guard. He gobbles it up, too.

  4. 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.

  5. Great product!

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 6th 2017

    I love Arenus products :-)

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
