Anyone who’s had to treat horse ulcers in the past knows that it can become incredibly expensive. Between the vet consultations, scopes, medication and ulcer-friendly feeds – it gets into the thousands very quickly.
However, by buying online without a prescription you can save a fortune on medications…. and depending on your knowledge, also skip the vet costs and scopes.
No one knows your horse better than you, and there are a handful of ways that you can diagnose ulcers in your horse without needing a scope or vet consultation.
Obviously at vet consultation is preferable – however for those limited by resources or location – these diagnosis techniques will help give a good indication.
How to treat horse ulcers without spending a fortune
You can treat horse ulcers with medication available online with no prescription required.
Abler medications contain the same active ingredients as the ‘big name’ medications but are more affordable because there isn’t a big marketing push behind them.
How much can you expect to save?
Let’s use the example of a 500kg horse with gastric ulcers. The most common medication for gastric ulcers is Omeprazole.
- Some of the ‘big name’ omeprazole treatments cost $32-$40/day. OUCH!
- Abler omeprazole (AbPrazole) treatment works out at less than $7 a day.
That’s a massive difference, especially when you take into account the minimum recommended treatment length is 28 days. Furthermore, with the ‘big names’ you need a prescription.. So there goes another $200 – 300 in vet fees.
Are there other medications you can get online without a prescription?
Yes. Aside, from an array of ulcer medications Abler also stocks the following medication at their online store:
- Phenylbutazone (a painkiller and anti-inflammatory commonly called Bute)
How long does postage take?
Depending on where you are in the world, delivery usually takes less than a week.
