My 20 year old thoroughbred horse, Izzy, has always been a fussy eater and very difficult to put and keep weight on. Two years ago he was scoped and diagnosed with a mild case of ulcers and was treated with Ulcergard. He has, however, always had an on-and-off approach to eating the various high quality feeds I have tried over the years.
Last month Izzy decided to go on a complete hunger strike. (We are talking no feed or hay.) Of course, I suspected he was ulcery and put him on medication. At this point I did not care about nutrition; I just wanted him to start eating and to start feeling good again.
I met with Jessica Drexler, Triple Crown Representative, after seeing her ad on TCCT regarding Alfa-Lox for horses who are picky eaters and have ulcer-like symptoms. I feel like this meeting has saved Izzy’s life.
I started with just a handful of the Alfa-Lox and 6 weeks later he is up to the maximum amount of 4 pounds per day. As a huge added benefit, I also slowly introduced the Triple Crown Senior Feed, which he unbelievably loves. He has NEVER licked his bowl clean until now.
Izzy’s coat is starting to shine, he’s feeling good and is eating well. I’ve got real hope here. I know what works for one horse may not work for another, but this product is definitely worth a try.
