Put my older pony on this a couple years ago because he was coughing so much he had lost weight. He was also allergic to the product recommended by my vet. He’s put back on the weight and only coughs occasionally now. Have also put my mini on it since she developed a cough
I live in Southern California, in a place where a lot of after smoke from the wild fires has been finding its way through our community. Two of my ponies have spring allergies and I’ve been wanting to do some thing to help them for sometime but did not know about this product. When the smoke from the fires ruined our air quality, I thought about trying this product to see if it would help them avoid respiratory infections from the poor air quality in their pasture. Poor babies could not get away from it. So much so, I thought about making a space in my garage with them for a few days. Before renovating my garage, LOL, I decided to give this product a try. To my delight, not only did the pony sail through the smoky skies, but so did the other two older horses on my place. I decided to put everyone on it as a preventive measure. Maybe they would’ve been OK on their own, but I did not leave it to chance and I’m happy that I did not. This product will always be in my feed shed from now on.
Thank you so much for helping out so many horses in Oregon during our recent fires. Heave Ho has been a game changer for so many of the evacuees and other horses in my care. With AQI levels 700-1175 for over a week, then dropping down to AQI of 500-600, we had a lot of horses breathing abnormally. From slightly flared nostrils to sounding like breathing through a bubble. Heave Ho makes a difference in just a couple weeks. I can’t thank you enough for your help! We have horses of all breeds and ages. The 30+ miniature horse Chip to the 6 yo AQHA Frank. This product works!!!!
I can't begin to express in words how thankful we are for Heave Ho and Dr. Reilly. Our miniature horse, Magic, started having heavy breathing. My daughter thought it was her heart. After all, Magic is over 25 years old. The vet checked her. Her heart was good. She was put on an anti-histamine. She eventually kept getting worse. The vet put her on 3 more meds. He even did bloodwork to see if they could find anything. Bloodwork turned out good. She seemed to lose her appetite and was losing weight. Even the vet was concerned about going into winter with her losing weight. I filled out a Heave Ho questionnaire and Dr. Reilly emailed me and told me what to do. I was still giving her 3 meds. Within a day or two we started to see some improvement. She gets Heave Ho, Heiro, also chia seeds and a probiotic powder. I can get her to eat these with her grain when before we had to syringe her meds in her mouth with applesauce to even get her to take them. Magic is breathing MUCH BETTER! She is back to her normal self and wants to eat! She has been on Heave Ho a little over 2 weeks. To sum it up, thank you so much! Oh, I just about forgot...Magic is off ALL HER MEDS!! Plus she is gaining her weight back! I just can't say thank you enough!!
I really want to say thank you for making Heave Ho. I started my pony on it 4 years ago after he started heaving after a horse show in July. My vet had no knowledge of it, but I try to use natural cures if possible. Caesar has only had one episode a year when he has needed a week of a steroid to get better (always June/July). This year he had no episodes at his new barn. However, we just had to evacuate the farm and then the Fairgrounds because of the smoke. The girls grabbed his Heave Ho as we were terrified he would be coughing in air which was deemed hazardous (500+ air quality index). He had to breathe that air for 9 days. My vet called me regularly because she was so worried about him. 19 year old driving pony was the only horse with no coughing or weepy eyes. This is crazy amazing! Putting other ponies on it for their 6 weeks respite time before they can work. Thanks!
