Supplementing the Neurologic Horse
Do you have a horse struggling with EPM, ataxia, West Nile Virus, EHV-1 or Lyme Disease?
Many neurologic diseases look the same symptomatically and are very difficult and costly to diagnose. A great option for supplementation is the DePaolo Equine Concepts’ Neurologic Kit. 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.
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.
The third nutraceutical in the Kit is ABC’s EPM Supplement. It is formulated with Vitamin E and Choline, to encourage proper neurologic function.
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.
