I would not have been able to turn my horse out on grass during the day if it wasn’t for Heiro. He had to be dry lotted or in a stall before using it.
Brought my IR Arabian mare back into work!
I put my IR horse on Heiro a few weeks ago and he is doing well. Dr Reilly helped me pick a ration balancer and he is eating well and losing weight. Will check his insulin level after 60 days. Every vet and owner of IR horses should consider it.
I am so grateful that I can let my horses have pasture turn out and not be concerned with them getting grass foundered now they're on HEIRO. They're grateful (and happy!) too. Thank you.
I recently have put my two aged horses on Heiro. My gelding has a cresty neck and for years been on an Equalizer, soaked hay, and Cushings meds but recently had rotation and is currently suffering from Laminitis. The Mare is a super easy keeper and for years I have treated her similar my gelding (minus the Cushings meds). I needless to say needed additional assistance to manage my gelding's metabolic problem but also felt I needed to do all I can to eliminate or prolong my mare from a similar misfortune. I feel good about adding Heiro to their regimen and was given a lot of praise from my vet and farrier about this new addition. My only regret was not starting it sooner for my gelding.
