My friend suspects her horse has ulcers. I was thinking marshmallow would be good. What about slippery elm? Any other suggestions? :blink:

Comfrey, Calendula, Gotu Kola, Licorice, Marshmallow, Plantain and Turmeric are all good for ulcers.

Horses with ulcers often have kidney struggles as well. You might want to give her a little kidney support. Switch to whole oats instead of more processed grains.

Cayenne has several activities that can help ulcers, it kills the bacteria (Heliobacter pylori) that cause the ulcer (as does Calendula). It also decreases pain (capsacian numbs the nerves) and regulates and impropves stomach secretions.
