Equine Conditions Guide

Equine Conditions Guide

This equine condition guide is only a guide, based on clinical experience with Cur-OST® Equine formulas in private veterinary practice and rehabilitation. The goal with all conditions is to aid in restoring balance back to the body, which is accomplished by balancing the inflammatory response, improving cellular health and function, supporting the immune function, and providing proper nutrient provision. One must keep in mind that the diet and exercise regimen is the foundation for every program.  Both of those entities are needed for recovery and maintenance of health in any horse.

In many instances, these goals may require the use of two (2) or more Cur-OST® formulas to achieve best results. In many instances, the approach to therapy is based on body condition, which will be mentioned.  Most combination regimens are continued for 60-90 days, following label directions for each product.  After this time, period, the regimens are often reduced to just the main Cur-OST® EQ Total, EQ Plus, Pure EQ or EQ Green with the goal of balancing the inflammatory response daily.  In some cases, after a period of time as the patient is improving, the main Cur-OST® formula being used may be changed to a lower level formula, such as EQ Plus to EQ Green, or EQ Total to EQ Green or Pure EQ to EQ Plus, if that patient is responding well.

The ability to reduce the regimen, adjust to lower required doses and more simplified regimens is patient variable, dependent on the severity of the condition and many contributing factors including stress, diet, environmental, and even proper foot care.

Younger Horse in Training: Cur-OST® EQ Green Competition Level
Adult: Cur-OST® EQ Plus or Cur-OST® EQ Green (dependent on pre-existing problems)

These recommendations are for health support only and are not meant to diagnose, treat, or cure any medical condition.  The true solution to many conditions impacting the horse is through proper support of overall health and providing support for the body, and mitigating pathways created on a cellular level.  This information is not intended to replace medical advise provided by your veterinarian, but is more so intended to supplement a current program to support overall health in the horse.

    I am a current customer with one horse we own and I was looking at the anxiety supplement you have for another horse I own. He is my daughters 10 year old national horse, very large (purchased as a stallion he was 8) easy keeper but when he returned from Florida with a trainer, he hasn’t been the same, he spooks at silly things, girthy, occasionally rears, flicks his head, looking at everything and I just want my horse back to the way he was before he left. I am currently using perfect prep products and they don’t seem to work unless I give him lots of it , so I thought maybe I would try another one of you products
