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.

 

Ghost Returns to Glory with Natural Plan Stomach Soother

“”Ghost” is a five-year-old off the track thoroughbred by the popular thoroughbred race stallion, “Two-Punch”.

Stomach Soother helped this horse

Ghost loves Natural Plan Stomach Soother

When Ghost was finished racing his owner decide she wanted to see if Ghost could be retrained to be a rideable horse that she could pleasure ride and occasionally horse show.  Ghost was fresh off the track, and initially we thought that his short attention span, extreme sensitivity to leg pressure, and his rearing & bucking were all due to his level of fitness.  We introduced him to turn-out time in lush pastures, and set very small daily goals.  After a month or two, it became obvious that Ghost had completely adjusted to his new barn life and turn out schedule, but his personality under tack seemed to indicate he was unhappy about something.  We suspected ulcers, and so we talked to the owner about starting him on Natural Plan Stomach Soother.  Not only did Ghost love the taste of the product, within one week we noticed a huge difference under tack.  Ghost seemed to be able to tolerate longer training sessions, and all the bucking & rearing stopped.  Much to our delight, Ghost participated in a horse show that was held at the farm where we was boarded and he placed in all three of the classes he was entered in.  Needless to say, we couldn’t have been any happier than if we were at the racetrack watching him win a race!  Natural Plan Stomach Soother is a great product, not only because it is affordable and horses love it… but it works!  Ghost says “Thank You!”

Many times, horses that seem to be grumpy or disagreeable are actually just expressing discomfort.  Think of a time your stomach hurt – you probably weren’t at your best, most charming self.  Same for horses.  Owners report having happier horses – many call it the “Happy Juice”.  We agree.

Papaya may help the horse’s digestive system get back on track because of its enzymes.  These enzymes are what helps a horse digest their food, form better stools and get relief from gas, digestive issues and diarrhea.  Natural Plan Stomach Soother has helped thousands of horses feel better, act better and perform better.

Here Are Just Some of the Comments About Natural Plan Stomach Soother

“…I do know that horses who tend to stay on the Natural Plan Stomach Soother for 6 to 8 weeks no longer exhibit signs associated with ulcers.”

Donald Kiefer, DVM from Virginia

Natural Plan Stomach Soother

Papaya For Horses – Great for Digestion

Natural Plan Stomach Soother is very palatable and effective in horses with mild to moderate gastric ulcer / digestive upset symptoms consisting of poor appetite for grain, mild depression or irritability and sporadic belching or toothing grinding.  Documented rapid relief within three to five days.

Horse Journal magazine article: “Ulcers:  Weighing Risks v. Over-the-Counter Treatments”

“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.

Danielle G. from Indiana

We recommend Natural Plan Stomach Soother for both large and small animal patients when they have digestive disturbances, stomach upset.”

Judith Shoemaker, DVM

Natural Plan Stomach Soother has always been a good seller ever since we discovered it back in 2004!  Customers like having a natural alternative to ulcer meds and they keep coming back for more.”

Natural Plan Stomach Soother Gets Positive Reviews – Helps All Kinds of Stomach Issues

Have you ever Googled yourself?  Kind of a scary moment, when you hit “Enter” and then wait to see what the court of public opinion has to say about you.  Well, we recently checked out what people were saying about Natural Plan Stomach Soother and we are glad we did.  There were a lot of stories where people spoke of how well it worked and a couple of stories where people weren’t sure, but they DID know that the horses loved the taste of Natural Plan Stomach Soother.  There were also some comments on the price – half thought it was inexpensive and half thought it was expensive.  Our comment on that is this, a single tube of omoparazole is well over $30, $40 and is $13 really too expensive for 8 days of digestive treatment?

We’ve taken some of the comments we’ve found online about Natural Plan Stomach Soother and how it helped their horses.  Read on to see how it might help your horse.

“I tried Stomach Soother on my young mare who wasn’t putting on weight months post foaling/weaning and was stressing over her turnout with older horses. I bought 2 months worth and only needed 1 month of it, as she finally turned the corner. She eats well now and always liked the taste of it. I’d been trying to tempt her appetite for months and doing things like shutting her in a stall with her hay. Mine come in for grain 2x a day.”   From: The Heartland

  “I have used Stomach Soother for a TB mare that had ulcer symptoms. Her appetite picked up and she seemed happier with the world. I probably kept her on it for 6 months. I ordered a new case and it is sitting unopened because she seems to be eating fine at the moment. I had to feed it to her in a dose syringe at first because I couldn’t depend on her to eat her feed. After about a week I could put it on the feed and she would start eating. She seems to like it. I also use it when the horses are stressed. It is a pain to go get it out of the refrigerator twice a day.”   From Houston, TX

 “I used it on an older horse with chronic diarrhea and it definitely helped. It isn’t quite as affordable as I’d have liked – you saw it on a shelf somewhere? I thought it was only available by mail order.”   From: Seargantvilles, NJ

“Love, love, love the (Natural Plan) Stomach Soother.   Old horse suffers from bad NTWs so much that he ulcers and goes off his feed and drops a ton of weight. So this summer, as he was getting itchy – and dewormed for the critters, I started the Stomach Soother. And presto! He kept eating and eating and eating.   Now I use for my fox-hunter/eventer. One day he just started weaving and being stupid. After adding the SS – back to his ol’ calm self.  Not sure if it is the most economical tummy ache med, but it has worked for me so I always make sure there is some in the fridge. ”  From:  Sunny, SC

It’s gratifying to read what’s been read – it was generally positive.  Just a couple of points I’d like to make – – understand it may be a pain to get it out of the fridge, but Natural Plan Stomach Soother has no preservatives so the 32 oz. bottle has to be refrigerated after opening.  We have a 2 oz. size that is available if refrigeration is not an option.  It is more convenient because it'[s a pre-measured dose.  Yes, it is more expensive, but it’s mostly because of the packaging.  Our products are available online at http://www.stomachsoother.com and increasingly, at a local tack or pet store near you.  We get new stores signed up every week.  And about the price, $13 gets you 16 doses for a full sized horse.  Sounds like a deal to me.

We appreciate all the comments and posting that people do because that is how this company has grown – by word of mouth.  It’s the most valuable advertising a company can have.

Older Horses Benefit from Natural Plan Stomach Soother

Mary T. wrote to us recently about her friend, a Quarterhorse named Fred.  He’s a lucky old guy, and not just because he was rescued, but because he was rescued by someone who truly cared about him and would work until she found the right solutions for her horse’s issues.  Below is the letter she sent us, telling us about Fred and Natural Plan Stomach Soother.

Natural Plan Stomach Soother has Older Horses Feeling Great

Older horses sometimes have stomach issues – they can be helped with Natural Plan Stomach Soother – papaya for horses

“It is past time for me to write about how Stomach Soother has helped my QH horse Fred. Fred is 30 or 31, was rescued in 2007 from a starvation situation and clearly has had abuse in his past. I adopted him in the fall of 2008. In the summer of 2009 he started having excess water in his stools and what I named “wet farts” – where he sprayed watery poo into his tail and down his buttocks. A lot of work to keep him clean and comfortable. It was episodic, but became worse in 2010. I tried a lot of different products – including four weeks of Gastrogard – but nothing really stopped the problem permanently. (I also switched alfalfa pellets to grass pellets – the alfalfa seems to aggravate the problem.)

I learned about Stomach Soother and started him on it mid-2012, twice a day in his mash. His issues cleared up in four weeks! I decided a few weeks ago to take him off and see if it made any difference. In three days of no Stomach Soother, his appetite was down and there was suddenly a lot of undigested hay fiber in his manure. That did it. He will be on Stomach Soother for life, it clearly helps him in many ways. (PS: He has Cushings syndrome, diagnosed in 2010, and is on Prascend – but no one thinks he looks like a Cushings horse, including the vet, he feels good, and keeps up with an 11-year-old warmblood during turnout.)

Thanks for making such a great product!”

Thanks Mary for telling us how Natural Plan Stomach Soother helped your Quarterhorse friend, Fred.
