Used this in the past & my horse did really well. So well, I stopped using it. This year Deacon’s hooves were so bad. One had an abscess form that healed but he still limped on all fours. Broke my heart to see him that way and I was giving bute twice daily. Bute barely masked the pain. I remembered HEIRO, ordered it, and within one week, he was back to walking comfortably. I won’t stop using this product again.
I've tried a couple of other IR products but Heiro works best. I do still manage my TWH gelding's pasture time and he does not get any processed pelleted feed. I use the Danco forage cubes to administer the Heiro and low NSC hay while in the stall. Definitely helps with cresty neck, that's where you'll see results first. Easy and reasonably priced. I love the 90-day refill bag.
My Andalusian and my Quarter Horse cross was diagnosed as having Equine Metabolic Syndrome. My vet put them on Insulin Wise. I started seeing a small difference in his weight, but not enough to please me. My mare still had no change. A client at the barn I work at has her horse on Heiro, so I thought I would give it a go. I put my Andalusian on it but kept my mare on the Insulin Wise. Big difference. She is still chubby, and slowly loosing weight, even though I have her on 1st cutting. My Andalusian is now at the barn where I work and is on limited turn out and is steadily losing weight. He has lost most of the fat rolls by his shoulders, and most of his cresty neck. I would recommend this to all those who are dealing with EMS or IR horses. As soon as I use up the Insulin Wise, I will be switching my mare over as well.
Started using Heiro with my 17 year old donkey Harry 4 months ago as recommended by our ferrier Kate.
Harry's crusty neck is reduced, he has some pep, and even gallops occasionally. Heiro has helped Harry the donkey.
Purchased HEIRO for a too easy keeper mini pony with a crest neck and a mini donkey with severe metabolism problems causing large fatty deposits all over his top line.
Within a week hard fatty deposits started to soften and diminish in size.
Daily noticeable changes. Nothing else, over the counter, ever worked. A must use for my two.
