X-rays revealed Bubba had an abscess adjoining his coffin bone. Overcome with pain and many other complications, he barely survived. Vet said he'd need to be on soft surface forever.... I heard wonderful comments from professional farriers on the track and others about HEIRO. So I tried it with excellent results. Bubba has a normal life now on pasture with his buddies. They are all carefully monitored during good grass season with plenty of dry lot. Bubba made a full recovery. He has a good, pain-free life. Sharing Bubba's story with other horse owners has been important to me. My Sister's horse lived to age 37 without pain due to HEIRO.
Our metabolic gelding was extremely foot sore and depressed due to pain. In 10 days he was up walking around and is now trotting and riding again! We are awed and the thankful!
My 23 year old Morgan mare named Candy has been on Heiro for at least 7 or 8 years. She is the typical easy keeper that suddenly didn't want to take a step - just wanted to stand in a stretched out position. We had been using Heiro on one of our geldings so started Candy on it too and talked with Dr. Reilly. She gets 1/2 measuring cup of pellets as a carrier for the Heiro each AM plus hay and pasture for varying amounts of time depending on the growth of the field. In the past we have used a grazing muzzle but haven't the past 3 summers. We are thankful for having found this product to keep our older horses happy and healthy and able to be turned out with their buddies.
This product is fantastic. Unlike the non standardized meds from the Vet. I know my girl is getting the same dose everyday. She eats it right up with her breakfast. She has been on Heiro for years and has not had a founder episode since we discovered yhis product.
Have been using for about 2 years. I have a pony with history of laminitis and take care of another pony with same history. Both are 19 years. I limit their time on grass, also use timothy pellets, and a low sugar and starch feed. No grain at all. They appear to be very healthy, no lameness, and love their routine. They run and play and are wonderful to watch. Thank you.
