Has anyone purchased these omeprazole granules or tablets over the internet?

They are super cheap (a treatment of 28 days for my horse would be around the $150 mark compared to $600 for a 21 days of ulcergard).

It does seem too good to be true and Im very Confused but thought I ask here.

Who knows, maybe Santa does exist? Shocked Razz

How much are you paying for your ulcerguard?, and how much are you giving your horse?. Confused

I have one on it at the moment, 25ml AM, 20ml PM, 45ml per day.
= 22 days worth of Ulcerguard from 1L. I paid $150 for the 1L.

ETA: And Ulcerguard is Ranitidine, not Omeprazole

Im not paying anything for ulcergard as Im only looking for info about it at this stage Very Happy

I went with the prices I found on different websites...

Also I just realised that there is two ulcergard out there Shocked
UlcergUard (with Ranitidine) and Ulcergard (with Omeprazole) Confused

ETA : just found this study that compare omeprazole vs ranitidine for ulcers treatment http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16313043

Nod My Vet suggested Omperazole for an inital course, then followed up with a month of ranitidine.
Because the ranitidine decreases the stomach acid production, It gives the ulcers a better environment to continue to heal.

I've seen Omeprazole followed by Ranitidine used for people too.

Ulcerguard (Ranitidine) seems to be what is available here, I've not seen the Ompeprazole Ulcerguard in Australia?

Thanks Elz, it confirms what I've been told Smile
Did you give Omeprazole prior to your current Ulcerguard treatment then? If so, under which form? Do you mind me asking how much you paid for it?

These granules are really cheap I believe! Shocked

I used Omoguard, it came in a multidose Syringe (Like a wormer) I got two 30ml syringes, Can't remember exactly what it cost sorry I think they were $60-$70 each.
The Omoguard syringes are far more cost effective than Gastra (zol/Coat/Shield)
