I started a new rescue mare with neurological symptoms in her hind end on Health E. Within 10 days she was noticeably more stable on her hind legs and she continues to improve every week. We are hopeful that she can fully recover.
This product helps keep my horse from EPM symptoms. Having been diagnosed 3-4 years ago, I put him on this product and is symptom free.
Much more economical than others out there
We first started using Vitamin E as a supplement/replacement in 2013 when our lead therapy horse, Spring Thaw was diagnosed with EPM, not once but twice in that year. Our governing veterinarian Dr. Judith M. Shoemaker wanted Spring to receive 8,000-10,000 IU of Vit E per day to help him recover and maintain balance and CNS response (am sure I am not quoting that correctly). The problem we faced was finding a supplement that would deliver that amount both in bulk (too much powder) and absorbability. Of the most common brands on the market were either not high absorption, or we had to use 2 to 3 ounces of powder per serving to deliver the levels needed for an elder horse post EPM. He wouldn't eat it. I first found out about Equine Medical & Surgical Associates in my search to find the fit for this incredible horse to have protection for his central nervous system. I was so happy to find a supplement that would deliver 11,000 IU of HIGH QUALITY (absorption) Vitamin E in a small scoop per feeding. Spring remained on Health E for the rest of his life and never had balance or ataxia issues again. We now have the rest of our healing Herd on Super Health E on the 1/2 dose of 5,600 IU per day as their pasture is limited and grass this summer has gone draught. I love this product and am so grateful to Dr. Reilly and his team of experts who create products that address acute and specific needs in horses. Thank you!
I am very comfortable and confident feeding my horses this Vitamin E supplement, especially with the current lack of grass in our area. Thanks again Dr. Reilly for all you do for the equine world and for the years you put into producing such wonderful products.
