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.
