Folic acid is not what you want to be taking: When we are faced with something really hard, it shows what is really in our hearts. Hi, My horse is a 10 year old TB. Click the arrow to turn the pages.

Where I was first boarding her the barn owner was not watering them. I had a vet come out and she said she was dehydrated. Ever since she wont put weight on. What can I do? To be safe, please continue working closely with your veterinarian to make sure she is receiving the feed, water, and other care she needs to be happy and healthy.
Previously it was just 1 scoop of this, a couple scoops of that. Like any commercial feed product, ration balancers are meant to be the only concentrate fed and not mixed with a fortified grain or complete feed. However, it sounds like your horse might actually benefit from the additional calories that a fortified grain or complete feed offers.
Serve It Up Right: The Facts On Feeds: Our 20 year old mare, who has heaves, has lost a bunch of weight off her top line in the last year. The vet says she is burning calories with increased breathing problems and he put her on prednisolone.
We already feed a small amount of beet pulp with vitamins which she loves. It would be easy to increase the beet pulp. What is a good amount to give her for added calories? We will increase the amount slowly, of course. Sadly she was auctioned before I got her over 3 times has lost pounds.
And then there is vegtable oil which she hates. But I have read about cocunut oil. I have a hard keeper. I was told to try a oil for him like cocoasoya oil read good thing about it. But my questions is could u do a oil like that and add success from smarkpak??? Also read good thing about it… Thank you. A good source of ulcer treatment is Aloe Vera juice. This is all recommended by my vet and has healed at least two of mine for sure, precaution for the rest.
I also have a 30 year old Arab, x-Barrel and x-Endurance horse, with no hind teeth, he has gained and held beautifully on 6 pounds senior with 6 pounds alfalfa pellets soaked and fed in two feedings daily. Hope this helps someone. I have a nine year old TWH that is a hard keeper.
She is used as trail horse and we ride and camp quite often — she is not in used in the show ring. My vet recommended Purina Amplify but it made her very nervous and hot. I am looking for something to help have her gain a little weight and maintain it with out making her nervous and anxious. Also, she was not anxious, nervous, or hot prior to using the amplify….
What would you suggest? It sounds like you have been working with your veterinarian, which is fantastic! We would encourage you to keep working with him or her to make sure that there is not an underlying issue that is making it harder for your horse to maintain a healthy weight. If these areas are being properly managed and she still needs extra support, you might consider including additional sources of fiber from things like beet pulp.
These ingredients can be a great way to support senior horses whose digestive systems may not be working as efficiently. Hello, I am pasture boarding a 5 horses for a women. I am doing everything, they have great pasture along with either a round bale constant and or square bales, but them seem to always waste the sq, they do much better with rounds.
One 29 year old TB has EPM which should not effect her weight loss, but she is loosing more and more every day. The other is a Arabian 27 years old he is missing teeth ect. They are on Dumor Senior, along with extra rolled oats, Alfalfa pellets and beet pulp.
None of this is working and they both continue to loose weight. For awhile I had the arabian also on Dumor Weight Booster but that did not help either Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. For all 5 horses that you are pasture boarding to be underweight sounds like a serious situation and one that you may need professional help with.
Somewhere in there may be the answer to why these horses are struggling to maintain a healthy weight. Additional diagnostics like bloodwork, fecals, or other tests may be necessary to get to the bottom of this major issue. I have a 21 year old T. You can see his ribs and also his spine and hips.
Just wondering what you would suggest for a supplement or grain to get. It sounds like you have been struggling with a hard keeper, which unfortunately can become more challenging as your horse ages. At this point, I think an important next step is to have an in-depth conversation with your veterinarian to try and determine why your horse is having trouble maintaining his weight. You could consider asking your veterinarian if additional forage sources, like beet pulp or hay pellets or cubes, or if adding supplements that provide weight gain or digestive support might be an option.
However, it will be important to first determine with your vet that there are no underlying issues contributing to his weight loss. I have a 18 yr old Appendix quarter horse mare that is an extremely hard keeper. She was taken to the vet recently and had a thorough check up. She also just had her teeth floated recently. She is currently on 9 quarts a day of Purina Strategy Healthy edge, reccomended by my veterinarian.
She is fed twice a day and is given free choice grass hay and is turned out 24 hours a day. I have tried Cool Calories but that supplement did not work well. She is rode almost daily for almost an hour. As a pair we are very active in local shows. Please help get my baby to the weight that she needs. Thanks for your question. For example, have you considered adding alfalfa hay to her diet, or feeding her more frequently than twice a day?
I have high hopes that you and your vet will find the key! I have an ex racehorse that is going on around He was severely under weight when I bought him, but he gained his weight no problem then, that was about 9 to 10 years ago. This year we bought our own property and he is loosing weight, where we was the grass was fescue and there was 13 acres, now we only have 2 acres and barely any grass yet due to it just being spring.
YOu think the beet pulp is safe for a 35 year old? Congrats on purchasing your own property! I have a 20 year old pure Arabian that has like 3 teeth left and is badly under wait and looks like she has been starved wut should I feed her to get her bk in good shape. Thanks for your question, Haylee! Unfortunately, there are many reasons that senior horses can struggle with their weight, including dental issues.
At this point, I think an important next step is to have an in-depth conversation with your veterinarian to try and determine why your horse is having trouble maintaining her weight, and what types of feed will be the most appropriate based on how effectively she can still chew. You could consider asking your vet if additional forage sources that are generally easier to chew, like beet pulp or hay pellets or cubes, or if adding supplements that provide weight gain or digestive support might be an option for her individual situation.
Hello, I have a 9yr gelding who I just bought this fall. He likes to pace and stay busy. He has free access to hay at all times. What else could I give him to assure some Weight gain in a safe way?
I have a 7 year old paint pony cross gelding. I have a 9 year old OTTB, 17hh, hardkeeper that we just relocated to another boarder barn with better conditions. He was loosing weight at the previous barn. He was being fed the triple crown, then was on Pro-Elite. He was also being given 2 flakes of alfafa at both feedings. In addition, I had him on a weight-builder called DacBloom, U-guard and also to help keep his coat dark bay he was given the black sunflower seeds in the feedings.
With all this he still continued to not gain weight. I contributed a lot of it to poor pastures too many horses in pastures. Now at the new boarder barn excellent pastures he is turned out to the pastures from 8am to 5pm. He remains in stall at night and is given hay after his pm feeding. He is still on the dacbloom, uguard. He has showed some improvement such as his coat is beginning to come back and not be faded. We have been at the new boarder barn for 3 months.
We are pleased with everything but he still needs more weight. It was suggested that we also try corn oil, but mixing it in his grain. Any suggestions as to how I can get weight on him would be appreciated. The dacbloom is not doing anything from what I can tell. He is currently being fed nutreina.

Dylan is young and impressive but has never seen the show ring. It is just wonderful to be back in the saddle again. I had no idea I had seat bones, but pounds will give you back all kinds of body parts.
Maybe a bigger change for me is in my attitude and perception about my role in the world altogether. I had a lot of detoxing to do. I was sustaining toxic relationships in business and holding onto things it was past time to let go of in my personal life.
It has taken me some time to find which ones are to go and which ones deserve more time and attention, but I am quite pleased with the changes. Over time, as the pounds were melting, whatever I was covering up with the layer of fat was coming to the surface.
The difference this time is that I had a new found since of clarity that would allow me to deal with it, and deal with it I have. Since taking up the Dr. Cabeca lifestyle of Restorative Health, my mental and emotional clarity has been amazing. I am loving my work more than ever, and thrilled to be a part of a creative process engaged in making the world a better place with healthy people who are sharing the road on this journey with me. Most profoundly, I am not afraid.
My relationship with my husband is better than ever, but honestly, we are still working on it. We are still shedding belongings and reorganizing relationships, cutting expenses and putting our priorities in line, but by the time I hit the 1 year mark a little more than a month from now for sure our lives will be in much better shape than they have ever been.
Cabeca, I cannot thank you enough. You have truly healed me. I have not felt like I was free from cancer since December 7, , the day of my first diagnosis. Today, I claim my health and I no longer look for or wait on it to come back. No one would ever believe I had ever been that sick. I try to make the world better because I am in. If not for you, I would not be in it long enough to make a difference.
You got it, and I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with someone that really sees and treats the whole person. The complicated history since then has been punctuated by some of the best medical minds at least in the Southeast, if not the county.
I have been very fortunate to have great doctors to treat what ailed me. I have survived because I was willing to go to whatever lengths necessary to get the best doctor possible and willing to take personal responsibility for what psychological, spiritual and physical healing was within my control in partnership with my doctor. You were right, however, I still live waiting on the other shoe to drop.
Grateful that I have had as long as I have to live as healthy as I have been, but living nonetheless, on a roulette wheel not knowing when my number would come up and cancer would come calling yet again.
The last 20 years has been a race. What can I get accomplished before time runs out. I have accomplished a lot in my field, in the communities I have lived in and in my life. I just got this sense that you know how to teach me to do that. I left your office today feeling like you knew what you were doing and that you knew me and what was going on in my body, mind and soul.
Thank you, for taking your journey and transforming it into healing for the rest of us on this path. The amount of time Dr. Cabeca spent with me during my office visit was so generous. I was uplifted mentally, physically and spiritually—filled with hope.
Cabeca was the first person who gave me hope that it was possible. Thank you Dr Cabeca! You can see I am including everything I can to set you up for success! Cabeca takes to assist her patients in achieving optimal health is like no other I have ever experienced. The boot camp gave me more tools to use in my daily life. My digestion has improved, my sleep is better, and I am maintaining a positive attitude no matter what comes my way.
I loved everything about it! As a professional educator of 23 years, I want to share my thoughts about the educational value of the program. From the initial teleclass, Dr. She shared information in a clear and concise way.
Easy steps to immediately make changes were presented in a manner which made it seem manageable. I knew some information about many of the recommended changes nutrition, rest, exercise prior to boot camp. Then came boot camp — just what I needed! I started drinking Mighty Maca daily. Aches and pains were gone! With each week I gained confidence after the knowledge building sessions and knew that continued success would follow.
Even though boot camp ended some time ago, I am still following the guidelines and feeling great! Cabeca creates Boot Camp 2. I want to enroll today! Thanks for changing my health for life!

I hope you see the immediate value of this program. What is it costing you to NOT lose that fat around your belly? What is it costing you NOT have adequate energy to get what you need to get done each day or even just play with your kids , to NOT feel good about yourself, to NOT be focused and able to think clearly? Another way to think about it is: What is the cost of just prescription medication or 1 cosmetic medical procedure?
If you can avoid even just 1 medication or 1 expensive cosmetic surgery or treatment, then you will have MORE than saved the cost of this program. I just want you to honestly think about the consequences of NOT taking action now.
Remember, your symptoms mean that your body is out of balance. That belly fat is metabolically active and actually produces hormones that can increase your risk for disease. So this is serious business. You need to take action now so that you can not only look and feel better, but so you can live a long, healthy, and active live. What are you waiting for? I am confident that you are going to immediately understand the value of this program to your health and that if you follow my program and do the steps, you will restore your energy, vitality and zest for life!

Getting a bit slack in following her routine, I was feeling tired, run down, not sleeping, had lost weight, just not myself. Now, back on the wagon In the last six months, I have regained my vigor, stamina and joy for living. I really appreciate the staff at Cabeca Health and their desire to find the root causes of my symptoms. Cabeca since November of and first came to her with symptoms of extreme anxiety, depression, fatigue, weight loss resistance, and acne.
I used to have debilitating panic attacks, but now my anxiety is very mild. I experienced severe stomach pain, and what we discovered was reflux. I used to take naps every afternoon, just to feel as though I could continue to function. Now I find it difficult to sleep at times because of all of my energy!
I have also lost a total of 16 pounds, and I am no longer weight loss resistant, enabling me to reach my ideal healthy weight goal. A few years back I experienced hot flashes and night sweats, but those had gone away after a few months. But now, at age 55, the list of complaints and their severity were too much to ignore: Additionally, I had suffered for many, many years with allergic-type reactions on my face which I attributed to my make-up and during the past 10 years I had four severe anaphylactic allergic reactions—one nearly fatal—the causes of which were undetermined.
