Maintaining Normal Neurologic Health In Your Horse

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

The DePaolo Equine Concepts Neurologic Kit was designed to provide nutraceutical supplements to help the body maintain normal neurologic function during times of stress. This is a completely holistic treatment that can be used in conjunction with other types of treatment prescribed by your veterinarian.  The Neurologic Kit has been used in field trials to help many horses who either didn’t respond to treatment with drugs or who were plagued with chronic relapses.

The Neurologic Kit

  1. Helps the body fight off infectious organisms
  2. Boosts immune function
  3. Supports healthy nerve function

The Neurologic Kit consists of three key supplements designed to promote optimum health. The cornerstone of the Kit is Colloidal Silver, which has been associated with infection fighting and tissue healing.

The second piece of the Kit is a powerful immune booster, ABC’s  Chvel. It promotes proper digestion, supports the immune system, and encourages normal immune response to allergens.  A healthy immune system is imperative to having a healthy horse.

The third nutraceutical in the Kit is ABC’s EPM Supplement. It is formulated with Vitamin E and Choline, to encourage proper neurologic function. Many veterinarians suggest horses undergoing treatment for EPM, or any neurologic issue, be supplemented with Vitamin E to support their muscle and nervous tissue.

This supplement is recommended for horses struggling with:

  • EPM
  • Ataxia
  • West Nile Virus
  • EHV-1
  • Lyme Disease

Many neurologic diseases look the same symptomatically and are very difficult and costly to diagnose. There are no negative side effects associated with this Kit, making it a great option for horses whose causative agent has not yet been identified.

A good feed program is extremely important to the overall health of your horse.  The Health Library contains informative articles in the Nutrition category. Horses diagnosed or suspected of having viral or bacterial infections or any neurologic dysfunction, are not healthy enough to be vaccinated. It is also important to not over-vaccinate, and in particular to not vaccinate a sick horse or in the face of an outbreak.  For more information, please read the Vaccinations articles.
