Equine Medical and Surgical Associates' Vitamin E is the very best. We provide this supplement daily on our rescue ranch for a variety of horses to include those with neurologic issues and it has made a big difference in their quality of life. Blue Apple Ranch is truly grateful for the excellent products available through this company. Thank you!
My husband and I take in compromised and unwanted horses. We get them with all sorts of issues. We keep about 10-12 horses at a time and at any given time we will have one or two who are being treated, or who have been treated for EPM, are severely undernourished, have been treated for heavy parasite loads, Lyme disease, and even the more rare shivers and canker. We use Health E as a matter of course in our barn and we are convinced that these horses rebound far more quickly than they would without it. We don't believe in throwing supplements at horses without specific reasons, and prefer a good low carb diet and deworming program, but this is a staple in our barn.
Our twenty-two year old (or so) Leopard Appaloosa, Dobby, was diagnosed with EPM and treated with Marquis for two months. During that time I discovered Health-E and the overall results are remarkable. He has been receiving two scoops of Health-E per day with meals for a month and a half.
I wanted to write to you and let you know what a difference Health E made in my horse. She is a 20 year old thoroughbred. I have had her since she was 3. She always had problems holding her back feet still for the farrier, but I thought it was from some past trauma. She ran three races and was taken off the track. Looking back I think it was the beginning of shivers. In September of this year she began having a lot of problems walking forward. She couldn’t back up at all. I took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with shivers. I was devastated. I began researching shivers and trying to find something to help her. I found Health E and started giving it to her. She has improved so much in the past several months that she can walk, trot, run and back up. During that time I also changed her food to triumph senior feed. Thank you so much for developing this great supplement because it is a miracle that she has improved as well as she has. My vet told me to make her comfortable and call when it was time to put her down because there was no cure. To me this is making her very comfortable. Thank you so much!
I have been in the business of breeding, training, showing and selling drafts and draft crosses for over 20 years. I have found that many are affected by some form of EPSM or Equine Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy. Most cases are very mild, but I have been supplementing my heavier horses diet with high fat, low starch diets for years with great success. Some horses need more fat depending on their symptoms and getting enough corn oil or rice bran in them can be challenging. I had a particularly difficult neglect case I was working on with a 6 year old Belgian nearly starved to death and through extensive research found that it wasn’t the fat that these horses needed as much as the vitamin E found in those fat sources! We desperately needed a high vitamin E supplement for this rescue and finding this product was blessing because it provides all the necessary forms of Vitamin E and it is affordable to feed in higher doses. I now supplement all my draft crosses with Health E and a senior with cushings is doing beautifully on it as well! Great product! Great price!
