HERBIE

HERBIE

HORSE RESCUE WITH LICE INFESTATION AND MALNOURISHED ETC.

Herbie was rescued by myself from terrible neglect with the aid of the local BHS Chairperson and Magaret Allin, Herbie was 33 years old and had not been cared for in a very long time, he was extremely malnourished, had over grown hooves, numerous dental problems and a series of skin complaints due to lice and infection. I was strongly advised by several other horse owners who had seen Herbie that he was too sick to recover and would need euthanising, but after blood tests carried out on behalf of the RSPCA who were gathering evidence together for prosecution, we found that the only internal medical issue was anemia caused by his lack of any sort of nutrition, I sought advice from my vet, farrier, dentist and nutritionist to carefully devise a plan of action to bring Herbie back to health to live a happy life with myself, in order to do this as quickly as possible i spent many hours with Margie Allin of FLP talking through what FLP products would best support his recovery, we used vast amounts of the Aloe Gel in his feed to support his immune system to fight infection, also to support his digestive system to prevent colic having not had any real food for a long time and also to encourage repair and growth of new skin and hair. Externally we used the Aloe and Jojoba shampoo, vet spray and Jelly to clean, disinfect and sooth the many open wounds he had due a large infestation 0f  lice and maggots, within only days Herbie was showing a massive improvement and went on to make a full recovery.

I believe that all the treatment provided by the vets, farrier, dentist and nutritionist was absolutely fabulous but I believe the reason it all came together and worked so well and so fast was because of the Aloe Vera that supported him with digesting his new diet, supported him through the vets worming programme and supported him with his teeth, gums and hooves recovering, other than the winning programme set out by the vet Herbie had no veterinary proscribed medication, it was the Aloe Vera along with good diet and good horse management that saved Herbies Life! !!!
