I started writing this blog because of an illness of MamaTess’.
Four years ago, she suffered from Canker so badly that after a year of surgeries and treatments by specialists, I was told there was nothing more we could do.
With nothing to lose, I tried a remedy created by a farrier – made from a jungle tree sap.
The wonderful farrier sent his concoction overnight to me.
Within 3 days she was better. Within 2 weeks, she was cured.
–Because so many other owners had gone through what I went through, I decided to write about it.
Thus begat HORSE AND MAN, the blog.
Here is that original post.
It has helped many, many owners… That farrier ships his ‘Purple Mush’ Equine Canker Cure around the world now.
I HOPE THIS IS ANOTHER CASE OF TESS HELPING ME HELP YOU.
Right now, Tess is suffering with laminitis.
Nothing is really working and her laminitis is worsening.
Light laminitis has happened to Tess every time she was pregnant (6) and a few Springs (maybe 3).
Usually, I notice right away – like I did this time – I put her in a heavily bedded stall, ice/pad her feet, give her a double dose of Banamine and Anti-Flam and she is on the road to recovery.
Not this time.
I am beginning to worry – but I know that isn’t good for either of us.
What I have to do is search far and wide – I have to do my best for the both of us.
My vet thought this Spring’s bout of laminitis might be tied to her cycle. So, we gave her Regumate to stop the madness.
It seemed to work – a bit.
But, I have since found myself having to dose her heavily with the Regumate every 6 hours. And it doesn’t make her sound. It just makes her less ouchy.
I’m actually not sure. Sometimes it seems to work and other times it doesn’t seem to work.
Banamine doesn’t seem to be working.
Bute doesn’t seem to be working.
Nothing seems to be working (ice, pads, supplements) – except the very heavy doses of Regumate – maybe.
Now I’m scrambling. I know I’m running against the clock. I know I have to stop this NOW.
I’ve emailed Dr. Reilly at Equine Medical and Surgical Associates to see if there are any new drugs that I can try.
I’m also going to let Tess use my ArcEquine. The owner of the company says that they have had success with laminits.
So, I am charging my kit now.
