FAQs

Can I administer two scoops of Ulceraser once a day instead of one scoop twice a day?

To maximize results we recommend dividing the two scoops between morning and evening servings. If this is not possible it is ok to administer both scoops at once.

How quickly can I expect to see a difference?

Usually within the first shoeing cycle. Hoof growth is notoriously slow, but Crackdown will start increasing the rate and quality of growth within the first 3-4 weeks.

Which types of products can Immunox replace?

Immunox can replace Vitamin E and selenium supplements as well as products given post workout or competition because the broad spectrum antioxidants and anti-inflammatories provide your horse with the necessary support on a daily basis. Not only is Immunox high in Vitamin E, a common supplement for horses, but it’s high in Vitamins A and C as well as polyphenols. Together this broad spectrum supplement is all you need to boost and protect your horse’s immune system, muscle recovery and strength.

What are Tummy Gummies?

Tummy Gummies are a revolutionary way to help protect your horse’s stomach by buffering and neutralizing gastric acid before and during stressful situations. Horses produce up to 16 gallons of acid a day, that when not constantly absorbed by forage, can quickly irritate the stomach lining causing severe pain.

What makes Chug different than other hydration products?

Most hydration products are high in sugar and/or starch, which is unhealthy for horses and problematic especially for metabolic horses. Chug has only 1% combined sugar and starch (NSC) content making it safe for horses with Cushings, PSSM and other metabolic issues.

 

What makes Symbiotic different from other probiotics?

Most probiotics are white powders where the bacteria died during processing and packaging, or otherwise die upon reaching the acidic environment of the stomach. Symbiotic uses a strain of yeast that does not require refrigeration, survives packaging, and that is proven to withstand the stresses of GI transit to successfully colonize the hindgut. Symbiotic contains other yeasts and forage based prebiotics that horses love the smell and taste of.

 

How much sugar and starch is in Crackdown?

The NSC content is approximately 8%. One of the many reasons veterinarians and farriers recommend Crackdown for metabolic horses is because the sugar and starch (NSC) content is so low.
 

Which skin issues does Immunox help?

There are so many, but these are a few of the most common: hives, bumps, fungus, general skin funk, scratches, summer sores, and more.

How is OM3GA® different from other omega oils?

Most omega oils are extremely misleading when it comes to the ratio of Omega-3 fatty acids vs Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids.  The majority of other oils are heavily misbalanced towards Omega-6 and Omega-9, when in reality it's the Omega-3 that your horse really needs.  Some small amount of Omega-6 and Omega-9 are needed for your horse to mount an inflammatory response to fight against disease and infection, but processed grain diets are exponentially higher in these pro-inflammatory fatty acids. OM3GA® is a true source of Omega-3 fatty acids, designed to re-balance your horse's Omega fatty acid profile.

 

Does Immunox help muscle recovery and strength?

Yes! Immunox is high in vitamins E, A and C as well as anti-inflammatories. They are designed to keep muscles supple and fresh when in hard work and training. Unlike other products containing synthetic Vitamin E (dl-alpha tocopherol), Immunox contains only natural Vitamin E, (d-alpha tocopheryl), which is the most bioavailable and readily absorbed by your horse.

How long are the Tummy Gummies effective?

The gummies start neutralizing acid on contact and reach peak buffering capacity within 15 minutes. When feeding four at a time the peak buffering effects will last approximately 45 minutes. It’s perfectly safe to feed additional gummies after that time to extend it.

Why is the scoop smaller than other product scoops?

The concentrated extracts and ingredients used in Arthroscope are more potent and effective than diluted powders in other products.

Why do people supplement with prebiotics and probiotics?

Often times, the delicate balance of beneficial bacteria in the GI tract is disrupted (i.e. due to medications, stress, illness, changes in feed or environment) and this can lead to various gastric issues. Maintaining a healthy population of beneficial bacteria while keeping the bad bacteria at bay is essential for proper nutrient absorption and immune health.

 

Why do some of the gummies stick together?

Unlike human gummies that are made with gelatin, sugar and corn syrup, Tummy Gummies are vegan and formulated to be safe and effective specifically for horses. These vegan ingredients result in gummies that are prone to sticking together, but your horse won't mind one bit!

Can I use Immunox with Ulceraser?

Yes! All of our products are designed to be safely used together. Immunox and Ulceraser work particularly well together because when it comes to good gut health and a strong immune system, you can't have one without the other. There is a very strong correlation between gut health and a healthy immune system because approximately 80% of immune system cells are located in the gut. Ensure that your horse has the gut support they need in order to boost immunity.

 

How soon before riding should I feed the gummies?

The gummies start neutralizing acid on contact and reach peak buffering capacity within 15 minutes. Most people like to feed them while the horses are being tacked up. But there is no wrong time to feed the gummies. 

How do I know if my horse needs a hoof supplement?

If your horse has dry or brittle feet, soft feet, feet that don’t grow well, hoof sensitivity, or quarter cracks, then they would benefit from Crackdown.

Is Crackdown safe for metabolic horses?

Yes! The NSC content of Crackdown is under 8%. One of the reasons why veterinarians and farriers recommend Crackdown for metabolic horses is because of its low sugar and startch content.  Metabolic horses and ponies have all done extremely well with the Crackdown.

 

How many scoops of Arthroscope do I administer per day?

We recommend dressing feed with 2 scoops daily.

Will hulk help with weight gain?

Yes! Hulk helps increase weight gain without increasing energy levels or making horses hot. And Hulk is safe for metabolic horses because of its extremely low sugar and starch content. If you are looking for ways to add healthy weight you should also consider Symbiotic which is a probiotic that enhances nutrient absorption. 

 

Can I give more than 4 gummies?

Yes. If you think your horse responds well to additional gummies per serving it is perfectly safe to feed more than 4 at a time. 

How many Electrobites do I feed?

4 gummies per serving.

How is Pro Bono different from other bone supplements?

Other bone supplements tend to focus on only Vitamin K and Vitamin D or calcium. But Pro Bono combines these ingredients in one formula with the addition of phosphorus and collagen, all of which are needed for bone remodeling, making Pro Bono a much more comprehensive supplement. 

 

Is OM3GA® safe for metabolic horses?

Yes! In fact, EPA/DHA can actually help regulate insulin and is extremely beneficial for insulin resistant and metabolic horses. 

 

Why does Crackdown have less biotin than other hoof supplements?

Because the amount of biotin your horse needs pales in comparison to the need for sulfur rich amino acids like Methionine, which are central to keratin production. Biotin is produced in the horse’s gut and most horses produce enough biotin to satisfy what they need for healthy hooves.

Is Chug an electrolyte?

No. Chug is a way to add irresistible smell and flavor to water so that your horse can’t resist drinking and hydrating. There is a small amount of pink Himalayan salt in Chug, but Chug is not an electrolyte. If you need an electrolyte it is recommended to add Electrofresh to their diet. 

 

What are the ingredients in Crackdown?

Crackdown contains a proprietary blend of quinoa, pumpkin seed, sesame seed, almonds, chickpeas, lentils, oats, kale, spinach, and brazil nuts.

If a horse swallows a Tummy Gummy whole and does not chew it, will it still work?

Yes, it will still work. It will take longer for the gummy to dissolve because chewing it increases the surface area available to buffer the acid, but it will still be effective.

What is the shelf life of Sudden Comfort?

We recommend using Sudden Comfort within 2-3 months of purchasing it directly from us. While the shelf life is one year and the paste remains perfectly safe to use, it becomes more difficult to remove the paste as it becomes firmer. The reason for this is because we do not add any chemicals to the paste to keep it liquified. 

 

What are prebiotics and probiotics?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria in your horse's GI tract that assist with digestion.  Prebiotics are the food source for the beneficial bacteria.  

 

Is it possible to buy Crackdown in bulk?

Yes. Contact us at 561-818-4222 or [email protected] to discuss.

Can I use Symbiotic with Ulceraser?

Yes!  In fact they are designed to complement one another by focusing on the gastric and colonic needs of your horse.

 

Why is OM3GA® better than fish oil?

Fish oil is beneficial due to its EPA/DHA content. But horses aren't designed to eat fish, and they don't like the smell/taste.  Moreover, because fish are often high in ocean contaminants, that means so is their oil.  OM3GA® uses microbrewed algae to harvest the same EPA/DHA found in fish oil, but because its clarified and distilled, it has no smell/taste, is healthier for horses to eat, and contains no environmental pollutants.

 

If my horse is already getting Omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed, why would he need OM3GA®?

Seeds like flax are high in ALA, one form of Omega-3 fatty acids.  But the body has to convert ALA into EPA/DHA to derive any anti-inflammatory benefit, and this conversion process is extremely inefficient.  Until now, the only way to supplement EPA/DHA was from fish oil.  Providing your horse with EPA/DHA is entirely different than just serving ALA because it is the EPA/DHA that ultimately help reduce inflammation throughout the body.

 

What kind of horses benefit from a bone supplement?

Pro Bono’s bioavailable form of Vitamin K, Vitamin D, collagen, calcium and phosphorus, supports healthy bone and cartilage that is both strong and resilient, and benefits many categories of horses; young growing horses, those with limited access to fresh pasture, horses on stall rest, broodmares for fetal development, horses recovering from bone or soft tissue injury, and horses in heavy training.

 

If my horse is finishing an omeprazole treatment is it ok to start administering Ulceraser before treatment ends?

Yes, in fact we recommend it so your horse starts receiving the benefits of the supplement prior to the acid rebound effect, which begins when treatment ends.

When should I feed the Electrobites?

Administer 4 Electrobites after strenuous activity when horse has been sweating or in other situations where replenishing lost minerals and electrolytes, or encouraging the horse to drink is desired. Fresh, clean water should always be available.

If you have horses that are trailering and you stop to give them water, you can give the Electrobites right when the water is available.

What type of horses benefit from Symbiotic?

All of them! To name just a few: senior horses needing improved nutrient digestibility and absorption to help maintain weight; foals and young growing horses that need to establish beneficial bacteria throughout the GI tract; performance horses susceptible to hindgut disturbance caused by sugar and starch content of large grain meals needed to meet their energy requirements; horses with loose stool or fecal water and; horses needing to strengthen the intestinal lining to restore “leaky gut” to normal permeability levels.

 

Is Hulk more effective than rice bran?

Yes! When it comes to building muscle and maintaining weight, Hulk is definitely better than rice bran. People feed rice bran because it contains gamma oryzonal, which is known to help increase muscle mass. Hulk not only contains highly concentrated gamma oryzonal, but also many other amino acids and proteins making it an even better way to create lean muscle without affecting energy.

 

Is it ok to feed two scoops once a day instead of one scoop twice a day?

Yes!

Is there a difference between the carrot and peppermint gummies?

The only difference between the two is their taste. The peppermint gummy is made with peppermint extract and the carrot gummy is made with carrot purée. Both gummies contain the same amount of active ingredients. 

How many scoops should I use?

Chug is designed so you can use as few or as many scoops as you like to fit your horse’s specific taste preferences. Some horses prefer just 1 scoop per gallon and some prefer more. You can experiment in order to create the perfect flavor profile!

 

Will my horse like the taste of OM3GA®?

Yes because there is no smell/taste. Our oil undergoes an intense clarification and distillation process to remove any smell or taste traditionally associated with marine oils. 

 

Is Pro Bono good for navicular issues?

“Navicular” generally refers to degeneration of the navicular bone that lies behind the coffin bone. People use this term to describe pain in the area of the navicular bone or the heel, including the navicular bursa, deep digital flexor tendon, coffin joint, or any of several ligaments. Ultimately whether Pro Bono or Arthroscope is a better fit depends on the actual diagnosis (for which we would recommend consulting your vet).  


Pro Bono contains highly bioavailable calcium, phosphorus, Vitamin K, Vitamin D and collagen. Together these ingredients help increase bone density and bone remodeling. This is especially important for horses who don’t receive a lot of fresh grass and for those on stall rest. 


Arthroscope contains the building blocks of joint health and several anti-inflammatories such as MSM, glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, ASU, boswellia, resveratrol, grape seed, tart cherry and hydrolyzed collagen. This supplement will help reduce inflammation and manage discomfort to stressed tissues.  
 
 

Do the gummies change color over time?

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you! It is completely normal for the gummies to darken over time. This does not affect the efficacy or the safety of the gummies. The darker color is a normal response to oxidation. 

Is Hulk beneficial for horses with IMM (equine immune-mediated myositis)?

Yes! IMM is an autoimmune issue with rapid onset. While horses can be treated with steroids and antibiotics, long term maintenance and treatment requires protein supplementation to help rebuild muscle. Hulk's combination of pea and whey protein contain the necessary essential and limiting amino acids to help build and repair lean muscle mass.  Given the autoimmune component of IMM, Immunox can support your horse's immune system while also reducing oxidative stress throughout the muscles.

 

Why are other basic omega oils so much cheaper?

The majority of omega oils, including those marketed as Omega-3 oils, are typically and primarily Omega-6 fatty acids comprised of a combination of cheap fats such as soy, corn, canola, or sunflower oil. These sources of Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids are known to create tremendous amounts of inflammation in the body.  But soy and corn oil are extremely cheap, which is why most companies use them as carriers.

What kind of calcium is used in Pro Bono?

Pro Bono contains Lithothamnion, which is a marine derived calcium that comes from red algae. Its high calcium content and bioavailability helps inhibit bone mineral loss. 

 

Is it OK to give more than 1 or 2 scoops a day?

Yes. If you want to help increase your horse's appetite or provide additional support for muscle development it is perfectly safe to feed up to 4 scoops daily.

 

Is Crackdown safe for horses with laminitis?

Yes! Crackdown is safe for horses that are prone to laminitis. The NSC content is approximately 8%.  One of the many reasons veterinarians and farriers recommend Crackdown for metabolic horses is because the sugar and starch (NSC) content is so low.

 

How long does it take to see a difference when I start using Ulceraser?

All horses are unique so the time frame varies, but the average is 2-3 weeks.

Foam or no foam?

Many horses enjoy playing with the foam on top that is created when adding water to the powder. Other horses prefer a foam-free drink. If you want to create foam, add Chug to the bucket first and then spray in the water. If you want to reduce foam then add water first and stir in Chug second.

 

What's the difference between Hulk and Immunox?

Hulk is a combination of proteins designed to promote the development of lean muscle mass. Immunox contains Vitamin E and other anti-inflammatories designed to reduce oxidative stress throughout the muscles to help keep them supple.  You can read more about Immunox here.

 

Will Symbiotic help a horse with diarrhea?

There are many different causes of diarrhea (illness, infection, parasites, ulcers, sudden change in diet, etc).  Symbiotic helps address chronic diarrhea by colonizing the hindgut with beneficial bacteria to restore the proper balance of microflora. Symbiotic also increases nutrient absorption, keeps pathogens and bad bacteria at bay, eliminates mycotoxins, and reduces leaky gut and fecal water. Another often overlooked cause of diarrhea is inefficient or incomplete digestion in the stomach prior to food (usually processed feeds higher in sugar and starch) making its way to the colon. This is why it’s also important to focus on gastric health. Ulceraser encourages digestion in the foregut where it belongs rather than in the hindgut, which results in the release of volatile fatty acids and plummeting pH ultimately leading to the death of beneficial bacteria. Ulceraser is also hydrophilic, which means that it attracts and absorbs excess water (reducing diarrhea) as well. 

 

Is it ok to give extra Ulceraser at a horse show or during times of additional stress?

Yes, but you should start administering the extra dose a few days before the onset of additional stress.

What is the difference between Pro Bono and Arthroscope?

Arthroscope is designed to target all soft tissue including joints, ligaments and tendons. It contains the building blocks of joint health including MSM, glucosamine, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin. It also has potent anti-inflammatories such as ASU, boswellia and resveratrol. Pro Bono is designed to increase bone density and assist with bone remodeling. Horses without access to fresh grass are often deficient in Vitamin K. Together with Vitamin K, Vitamin D, and a highly absorbable form of calcium from red marine algae, Pro Bono helps increase calcium absorption. Both products compliment each other and are safe to be used together.

 

What is the consistency of Hulk?

Hulk is a fluffy powder that smells like maple syrup. Most horses gobble it right up!

 

Is it ok to use Ulceraser and Positude together?

Yes because both products complement each other. Ulceraser supports digestive health and Positude regulates hormonal behavior.

Is Hulk a good option for a senior horse that is a hard keeper?

Hulk is great for senior horses and hard keepers. It will help stimulate their appetite which will ultimately help them put on and maintain more weight. If you are looking for a supplement that is high in protein and fat (without the sugar and starch) you can also consider adding Ulceraser to their diet. This is a great way to add extra healthy calories. 

 

Sometimes it is hard to get the paste out of the Sudden Comfort tube. Why?

If using Sudden Comfort within two months of its being manufactured, the paste flows freely If the paste sits in a cool environment for over 3-4 months, the ingredients “firm up” and become more difficult to administer from the syringe. Sudden Comfort is made with all natural ingredients, and we do not use chemicals to keep it liquified. 

 

Is Ulceraser horse show safe even though it contains tryptophan?

Yes.  Tryptophan is not a prohibited substance under the USEF, FEI or AQHA.

How does the consistency of Electrofresh compare to other electrolytes?

One of the things that distinguishes our company is that we tend to stay away from pellets and powder, instead focusing on whole food, forage based products because they are more effective and horses prefer them. Electrolytes by nature tend to be “powdery” but because ours is made from pink Himalayan and red Hawaiian salt it is much more crystallized and substantial than other electrolytes. 

 

What can I do to make it easier to depress the Sudden Comfort syringe?

Letting the syringe sit in a cup of warm water for 15-30 minutes will usually soften the paste again so it flows freely.

 

Does Ulceraser support the hindgut?

Yes! One of the causes of hindgut ulcers is an excessively acidic environment caused by disturbances in the micro flora associated with a diet high in sugar and starch. Ulceraser’s forage blend supports the hindgut in several ways: it acts as a pH buffer to help buffer acid as it makes its way through the GI system, it encourages digestion in the foregut rather than in the hindgut thereby reducing the release of volatile fatty acids that cause pH to plummet and kill beneficial bacteria in the hindgut which can lead to ulcers, it serves as a prebiotic, and the glutamine content helps strengthen and build mucosa throughout the GI tract. 


If you really want to target the hindgut you should also consider adding Symbiotic, which is a pre/probiotic that targets the hindgut with research proven strains of yeast that help colonize beneficial bacteria, eliminate bad bacteria and mycotoxins, and help tighten the colonic junctions to address leaky gut and fecal water. 

 

Can Ulceraser be given to a horse suspected of ulcers, but without a confirmed diagnosis?

Yes! Many people choose to treat the symptoms of suspected ulcers rather than go through the process of having them scoped (the reasons for doing so vary but two common ones include wanting to avoid the cost and stress to the horse). There are no negative side effects to feeding Ulceraser so even if your horse did not have ulcers, he would still benefit from the addition of Ulceraser to his diet: the glutamine helps build and strengthen mucosa throughout the GI tract, omega 3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation and swelling, the supplement is hydrophilic so it helps remove sand and debris from the gut, nitric oxide helps increase circulation and heal lesions, and it encourages digestion in the foregut (rather than the hindgut) avoiding the release of volatile fatty acids that can kill beneficial bacteria leading to hindgut ulcers. 

 

How many servings are there in each bag of Chug?

The small bag contains 12 servings and the large bag contains 40 servings. 

 

Is it safe to keep my horse on the loading dose of Positude long term?

Yes. Most horses taper to the maintenance dose without issue, but for horses needing additional support it is safe to feed the higher dose daily.

How long does it take to see a difference when starting Positude?

The average time frame is 2-3 weeks, but because all horses are unique it can vary.  Some horses will respond within 1 week and others may take up to 4 or 5 weeks to respond.

How many pumps of Positude do I administer?

The pump is 1/2oz. For the loading dose you should dispense two pumps (1oz) AM/PM for the first week. The maintenance dose is one pump (1/2oz) AM/PM.

Is it ok to use Positude and altrenogest (Regumate)?

Yes. Regumate and Positude are different. Regumate is designed to prevent a mare from cycling, but Positude is not. Positude helps address the behavioral side effects associated with the estrus cycle. Most people find that Positude is so effective in addressing their mare’s behavior that they do not need Regumate, but it is ok to use both.

Is Stevia safe for horses?

Yes! A 2020 study done at the University of Kentucky actually concluded stevia is one of the safest sugar substances to use in horses! The University of Kentucky study actually concluded that stevia was well tolerated in EMS horses because the plant-derived sweetener did not induce the same metabolic responses as the corn-syrup challenge. The amount we use is so small that it’s measured in ppm (parts per million).

 

Is Positude effective for geldings and stallions?

Yes. People see a significant improvement in their geldings’ and stallions’ attitude and behavior on Positude. Positude is not just for mares.

How long does it take to see an improvement using Calmakazi?

All horses are unique so they respond differently, but the average time frame is 1-2 weeks.

Can I increase the dose if my horse needs additional support?

Yes.  It is perfectly safe to increase the amount you give if you feel your horse needs the additional support during times of additional (or acute) stress, or even on a daily basis.

Is it safe to use Calmakazi and Positude together?

Yes.  Calmakazi and Positude complement each other and horses needing additional support do well with the addition of both supplements. Positude helps regulate progesterone, estrogen and testosterone while Calmakazi helps regulate serotonin and cortisol.

How long does it take to see a change when using Immunox?

All horses are unique and respond differently, but the average time frame is 1-2 weeks.

Is it safe to use Immunox with other Equine Elixirs products?

Yes.  All of our products are designed to complement one another and are safe to use together.

Is it ok to administer extra Immunox if my horse needs additional support?

Yes.  It is perfectly safe to double the dose during times of additional stress.

What size is the scoop that comes with Ulceraser?

Each order of Ulceraser comes with a standard 94cc scoop.

Can I order Tidbits in bulk?

Yes! If you are interested in bulk orders of Tidbits please contact us at [email protected]

How do I get an extra pump for Positude?

After receiving a complimentary pump with the purchase of your initial 120oz supply of Positude, you can purchase additional pumps for $2.00 with future orders.  If you need additional pumps at a time when you are not otherwise ordering a Positude refill, please contact us at [email protected].

Why does my horse need electrolytes?

Electrolytes replenish minerals lost in equine sweat. Maintaining a proper electrolyte balance in your horse is necessary for nerve, muscle, and brain function.

Is salt different than electrolytes?

Yes. Salt is just sodium chloride. Electrolytes contain more than sodium chloride and are designed to mimic the minerals lost in equine sweat, which include sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium and magnesium.

Is it better to add the electrolyte to feed or water?

It’s definitely better to add the electrolyte to your horse’s feed so that fresh, clean water is always available. Some horses won’t drink water mixed with electrolytes and you don’t want to deter your horse from drinking.

How many tubes should I give?

That depends on your horse. Some horses and ponies need only 1 tube 1.5 hours prior to the anticipated event. Others require a second tube 30 minutes prior to the event.

Is it safe to give more than 2 tubes if my horse needs it?

Yes.

Why is Sudden Comfort paste thicker than other brands?

There are several reasons. First, the paste is not diluted with any filler. Second, in order to make the most effective product in the smallest possible volume we use only the minimum amount of oil needed. Third, the thicker paste is actually preferred by the horses and they are less likely to drool or spit it out when administered.

How many syringes are in a case?

There are 12 syringes in each case.

Is it possible to buy Sudden Comfort in bulk?

Yes. Contact us at 561-818-4222 or [email protected] to discuss.

 

Do you offer farm incentive programs?

Yes.  For barns buying in bulk please email us at [email protected] to discuss eligibility and incentive structure.

Where do you ship from?

All orders ship from our warehouse in Wellington, FL.

 

Do you have sales or promo codes?

No. We do not have sales or promo codes because we offer the highest quality product at the lowest possible price year round.

Do you have sample sizes of the supplements?

No.  The reason we do not have sample sizes is because the average time frame for seeing an improvement is generally 2-3 weeks so for people wanting to sample the products we suggest starting with the 30 day supply.
