Hello Dan, my horse Gaitor is at Purdue this week getting diagnosed for front lameness. I have a "preliminary diagnosis" of " origin suspensory ligament diasase". I am very concerned with what I am reading on the internet about this!! Is there something that you can recommend?
Thank you so much!
Leatha I would consider our Critical Care Laminitis formula along with our Joint Check product and then both upon the foundation of our feeding program (visit: FeedForSuccess.com) The "Critical Care" formula is pricey BUT there is nothing like it anywhere. It has really helped many with all kinds of inflammatory conditions including susupensory. Generally one tub of the Critical Care is sufficient and then continue only with Joint Check for the long term. It has tremendous ingredients to help detox and also anti-inflammatory benefits as well.
Let me explain a little about the need for the feeding program (FeedForSuccess.com) You see, Commercial feeds are full of hydrogenated fats plus a lot of other ingredients as fillers etc. . Horses need fats but good fats and not processed. Weight Check Oil is part of the program and is the best source of fats we have been able to find. FREE CHOICE Salt (our RED CAL and in your case I suggest our Hi Mag version RED CAL), mineral and vitamins are critical. With commercial feed if they are not getting exactly what the bag says for their weight, THEN THEY ARE EITHER GETTING TOO MUCH OR TOO LITTLE of those vitamins and minerals that were added to that commercial feed. Hence, I suggest whatever amount of oats the horse needs, typically the same volume of commercial feed now getting, and adding the proper supplements to them at each feeding. This assures they get what they need. (Just Add Oats 2x and the Weight Check Oil)
Hope this helps. Please keep me posted and how this turns out.
