What changes were noticed: Within a very short period of time, my veterinarian, my farrier and I saw a complete turnaround. Stoney went from a very sad state in which he was in so much pain due to founder that he could barely walk, to a horse that was back to his normal self within about a month’s time. He was running and bucking, and he looks so much healthier. I have had so many compliments on how his eyes have brightened up, how his coat has shed out and become more vibrant, and how great his hooves look! We were so fearful that Stoney would have to be put down a year ago, and now he is doing great! He looks and feels like a new horse! My only regret is not knowing about Prascend® (pergolide tablets) earlier. I have my best friend back, and for that I CANNOT thank you enough!
