Dear Springtime,

I have a foundation Quarter Horse, Handle My Wranglers (Handy), who has COPD. He has had ongoing problems for three years now and he has been on lots of meds. In addition, I have been using a hay steamer for him, keeping him outdoors and as dust-free as possible. All this, and he was still having problems. Last spring, he went into full respiratory failure and it took quite a lot to pull him back. After that episode, my vet suggested I try DMG 5,600 in combination with my horse's meds to see if that might help. I started him on DMG 5,600 last spring and noticed a difference within a few days. I am happy to report that he is off all meds now except a daily antihistamine and, so far, we are getting through the most difficult season for him (autumn) without any respiratory problems. We have been able to enjoy long trail rides and beautiful fall leaves this year, without so much as a cough.

I suggested the product to some of my friends whose horses also have had respiratory problems and they too, have improved dramatically and are able to enjoy trail rides again.

During "bad air" days, I give my horse the recommended heaping teaspoon dose twice a day (AM & PM), which is what has made a difference for him.

I have enclosed a photo of Handy and me at the Susan G. Komen Ride for the Cure which was held here in Ohio in October 2010. I am prayerful and hopeful that we will enjoy more years together on the trail.
