As above, the reason herbal remedies aren't backed up by tonnes of research is simply due to cost. Doesn't mean they don't work! As I work in the medical sector, I have some insight into the mega bucks behind the drugs companies and the massive budgets they have for things like testing and promotion. IMHO, that's why drugs are more widely accepted by the medical and veterinary professions than herbs & alternative stuff. If someone with millions to burn decided to do the testing on herbs etc, then who knows?!
Jenny,hes not my vet,hes a leading specialist in the subject,is your vet a specialist on ulcers? I ask not to be rude but because most vets arent clued up enough or up to date enough ( certainly our local equine vets arent) and they give out a lot of duff info
Thanks sandpiper,Can you tell us more about your own condition ,ie what caused it and how it responds to the treatment please?
I would say she almost certainly has ulcers-they dont go away without treatment although it appears that they can possibly ease with better management ( maybe).Could you get her scoped? the GG is an awfully expensive med to use as a trial and as the cribbing may never stop no anyway you may not be able to tell if its done anything without scoping.
