Customer Question

Hi. I accidentally gave my horse too much ulcer guard. The tube comes with 4 doses in it and I had 3 doses remaining. The stopper must have slipped and she ended up with 3 doses instead of 1! She weighs about 1050lbs - 1100. What should I do?

Hi there. Thanks for the question. You do not need to do anything. This is perfectly safe. We often use a full tube for therapy in bad cases. Your horse will be totally fine. Take care.
