We have a 30+ year old horse who has had issues with choke due to expired molars. He developed pneumonia and our vet didn’t offer much hope due to his age. We didn’t want to keep him on steroids and he’s terrible at taking anything in his feed. He had an awful “rattle” in his breathing that told us we needed to put him down. As a last resort, and knowing how well Dr. Reilly’s other products had worked for us in the past, we decided to try Heave Ho. The first test was to see if he would eat it, which he did readily, as is typical with all of Dr. Reilly’s products. The label says to expect results within 14 days but we saw results in less than a week. His breathing was less labored, the rattle disappeared and his cough went from dry to productive, allowing him to expel what had collected in his lungs. He began to eat better and, unbelievably, he returned to work on the trails. He is happy to be out there, always wants the lead and has to be slowed down most of the time! Our vet is amazed at the condition of his lungs and now also recommends Heave Ho. It smells wonderful and tastes great too - I couldn’t resist tasting it 😉
I have a 14YO Bay Gelding whose just recently starting showing signs of heaves and was diagnosed with heaves per our vet. over the past year I have multiple things to help manage his symptoms, but no luck he just seem to get worse nothing was working. After months and months of research I came across this product and decided what's the worse that could happed? After the first week I noticed that his coughing began to stop, and moving into the second week he was no longer laboring to breath. So far we are push week two of post Heave Ho and his heaves symptoms are still suppressed for now. (normally they have already came back living on sand land.) This product is amazing and my horse is defiantly a lot happier and healthier.
My 18 yr old gelding was suffering from COPD and with the help of the Dr. Reilly's advice we got him back to normal breathing. I will continue to use the Heave Ho and other supplements that he recommended. Thanks for the ability to ask the vet questions . I really appreciated his help ! :)
My mare was diagnosed with moderate to severe Heaves 2 years ago at age 16. She still has a cough at times but is 100% better after getting this supplement. She still has not developed a heaves line and her breathing issues have been greatly reduced.
I have an older pony with breathing issues. I started using Heave Ho a few years ago and found it helped my mare so much. During the spring and summer, if her allergies are especially bad, I give her some in the morning and some at night. She doesn't cough but is very reactive to allergens and gets raspy. I soak all her hay all year. My biggest thing with her is to make sure she doesn't overeat on pasture as she blows up and it affects her breathing. I fence off a small area and then increase it by a swath every day to few days. She's doing so much better! Thanks for a great product and quick delivery.
