A natural nutritional horse supplement developed for breathing allergies, COPD and coughing. Helps open airways, clear mucus and stop coughing. A special combination of herbs helps fortify horse’s immune system using phytonutrients, immune modulators and adaptogens to help deal with stress of breathing issues, and anti-inflammatories. Most horses respond quickly within 14 days with improved respiratory rates and are more calm from being able to breathe more freely.
The Risk of Equine Heaves & COPD
A horse's airway in Equine Heaves/Equine COPD reacts to a level of stimuli from allergens that do not affect normal horses. This can last for days, even after removing the offending cause. Three things occur after exposure:
- Constriction of airways – walls of airway become smaller so imagine breathing through a garden hose and then breathing through a straw
- Mucus accumulates in airway paths – this further blocks airflow. Imagine your horse sipping water through a straw and then having to sip pudding – extra effort
- Airway spasms – an already narrowed airway becomes super narrow as spasms further reduce airflow
Equine Heaves/Equine COPD can lead to such dramatic weight loss that horse starts to struggle to get up after laying down to sleep or roll. The more humid the weather, the worse it is for COPD horses. Help horses breathe better faster – discover HEAVE HO.
Do I need to treat year-round? YES.
Spring: Increase in grass, weeds and leaf pollen
Summer: Flowering plants and weeds pour out pollen. Corn and soybean pollen peak.
Fall: Ragweed pollen and mold spore counts peak. Fallen leaves are a major mold source.
Winter: All hay diet, in many cases, is needed so hay dust increases.
Directions: First time users - Mix 1 scoop (2 Tbsp) in morning feed and 1 scoop in evening feed for 7 days in a row, then switch to regular schedule. Regular schedule - Mix 1 scoop (2 Tbsp) daily in morning feed. Most horses respond in 10-14 days with improved respiratory rates, less cough and calmer attitudes from being able to breathe better. Due to lemon balm and green tea (low level caffeine), withdraw HEAVE HO 3 days prior to competition. Do not compete at tested events when using HEAVE HO. Measuring scoop included.
