After several days of trying to figure out what to do with our very anxious and edgy horse, we switched from another digestive supplement to DePaolo Equine Concepts’ Excel Supplement and were absolutely AMAZED by the results.

The procedure must be administered by a licensed veterinarian as it is considered surgery by the above associations and requires a thorough knowledge of veterinary anatomy and physiology. Read more
Extremely hot temperatures aren’t fun for anyone that works outside. Unfortunately, horses don’t get to escape to air conditioning; they have to live in the heat and are asked to perform in it as well. This becomes absolute misery for horses that stop sweating. They, like people, need to sweat for thermoregulation.
The inability to properly sweat is known as anhidrosis. Read more
