Natural Plan Stomach Soother reviewed by Horse Journal in 2005 & 2012

Image

What a long way we’ve come!  The prestigious Horse Journal in March of 2005 published an article about horse ulcers.  At that time, there was still much debate as to whether or not all horses even had ulcers in the general horse community.  The Horse Journal article did a lot to explain and educate people on the symptoms, signs and  treatments  of horse ulcers and stomach issues.  At that time, they reviewed 19 products, Natural Plan Stomach Soother being one of them.

Their bottom line was that they preferred U-gard Solution.  However, they found “similar rapid results were obtained with (Natural Plan) Stomach Soother”.  Their point of difference at the time was that U-gard was less expensive.  We’d like to point out however, that the cost is negligible when you consider that you may have to use 4 oz. per dose as opposed to 2 oz..  Also, considering that long-term use of calcium & magnesium (the other guy’s active ingredients) has negative side effects, while NPSS has none, the choice is clear.

At that time, in 2005, the Horse Journal listed 19 remedies.  When they published an update on this subject, in June of 2012, only 12 were listed.  And of these 12, only 3 are from the original 19 remedies that were listed back in 2005.  Natural Plan Stomach Soother is one of them (the others being the Pro-CMC & U-gard).  Entering our 10th year of business, we feel blessed to be one of oldest branded alternative digestive remedy on the market.  Our customers find rapid relief for their horses from the discomfort of ulcers, diarrhea, weaning and more.  They appreciate the fact that they can mix other medications like Bute into our tasty Natural Plan Stomach Soother and not have their horse spit out the medication or suffer side effects such as digestive discomfort from antibiotics.

We love the fact that so many horses (and some owners!) have tried our product and have found it useful.  They’ve informed us about uses beyond our initial scope – such as using it for dogs, cats, llamas and alpacas.  Our customers have told us that it’s made their horse calmer or happier.  Travel weary customers have tried it on themselves and let us know how good it made their stomach feel.

MiniHorseFeathers & Natural Plan Stomach Soother – Similar Values are Shared by both Companies

mini horse feathers Loves Stomach SootherMarsha Hamilton from MiniHorseFeathers.com is passionate about a lot of things.  Mini-horses, horses, and business are just some of them.  Which obviously is why she runs MiniHorseFeathers.com which is a specialty tack & supply online retailer.  We were speaking the other day and she was telling me about their new “Show Shammie”, which helps keep mini-horses warm and not catch a chill, and that the idea came to her from seeing a little horse shiver at a show & realizing that they are athletes and athletes have specialized fabrics and construction to help wick sweat, regulate temperature, etc.

The reason I’m telling you is that to me, it’s another example of looking past “how things have always been done” and doing something new.  She was enthused to come up with a solution to a problem.  She’s representative of a lot of Natural Plan Stomach Soother customers.  Usually when horses get ulcers – medications are purchased and used, and side-effects dealt with.  But our customers sought out something new – and in Natural Plan Stomach Soother’s case, something old & new!  Old, because papaya has been used for centuries as a digestive aid and new, because thinking outside the box is what got us to think about using papaya for horses.

Marsha also does what a lot of our customers do, she tells other people and shares what she’s learned.  Imagine if all new ideas were not shared – boo.  She was telling me about how she told her trainer about NPSS and that she used it when trailering her mini’s – either to a new home or to a show.  She also told me she know of several riders who drink it themselves when they’re nervous at a show or just not feeling that great after traveling.  In fact, she tells us, she tells EVERYONE about our product.  We of course love it, because it’s our customers’ testimonials that have kept us soothing stomachs since 2004.

When we started out, we focused solely on horses.  It’s been our customers that have helped us branch out to the canine, feline, bovine, and camelid market.  (Camelid – fancy for llamas & alpacas – and I would imagine camels………)  They’ve told us that not only did Stomach Soother help with ulcer and digestive issues – it was also helpful in giving meds.  Some have gotten their horses NOT to be afraid of syringes with it.  Others have told us they use it as a “happy juice” when their horse seems off – whether to grief, stress or new surroundings.

Marsha Hamilton from MiniHorseFeathers.com was the one to tell me about mini’s particular needs.  She ought to know – she and her sister joined forces and talents to establish a very special store offering the best in miniature horse and miniature donkey tack and supplies.  They carry unique products and you will discover new possibilities, all creatively designed and customized by people who love mini horses and everything about them.  That’s why Natural Plan Stomach Soother is so happy when we can get such kind words from such knowledgeable people.

“I ended up talking again to the girl at the tack/feed store I go to about how it might be an ulcer and getting more Ulcergard.  She talked about how it is so expensive and suggested that I try this (Natural Plan) Stomach Soother and that she had good reports from people that were using it for horses on the track.  Thanks for a great product – it worked!”

Natural Plan Stomach Soother has been a HUGE part of our racing stable since I discovered your product while working at the Breeder’s Cup World Championships at Churchill Downs.  The first morning I gave it to her, she was drinking better after she galloped, cleaned up her lunch, and cleaned up her supper…. She put on weight, filled out, dappled out, and was a picture of health.

Mini’s Benefit from Natural Plan Stomach Soother – Makes Moving to a New Home Easier

One of the most stressful events in your life can be moving to a new home – all the commotion, running around and anxiety.  And that’s just getting there.  Once at your new home, there are new routines, faces, surroundings – it can be a lot to take in.  It’s no different for your animal.  There is always stress and a period of adjustment – but you can help.

One of the easiest ways to make the transition to a new home go smoothly is to soothe their stomachs so that they don’t get digestive upset from the move.  Ellen F. tells us her story about her mini, Kodie.

She writes:

“I was introduced to Natural Plan Stomach Soother ™ by a friend, whom I bought my mini from.  She sent me home with a few bottles, and a wealth of information (about the product).  I used Natural Plan Stomach Soother for a few days in order to help Kodie better adjust to his new home.  NPSS is absolutely amazing.  Kodie never went off his feed.  He actually never missed a beat.  We use it for everything.  If we have a horse that stresses from trailering, diarrhea, or maybe one that has decided they don’t feel like drinking much.  Natural Plan Stomach Soother does exactly what it says, soothes.  What a wonderful product.  I am incredibly thankful I was introduced to Natural Plan Stomach Soother!”

Such nice words Ellen – it’s great that Kodie was able to make such a good transition to his new home by  using NPSS.
