Equine Conditions Guide

This equine condition guide is only a guide, based on clinical experience with Cur-OSTŪ Equine formulas in private veterinary practice and rehabilitation. The goal with most conditions is to modulate and balance the inflammatory response, improve cellular health and function, which includes immune function. In many instances, these goals may require the use of two (2) or more Cur-OSTŪ formulas to achieve best results. In many instances, the approach to therapy is based on body condition, which will be mentioned.

Most combination regimens are continued for 60-90 days, following label directions for each product.  After this time, period, the regimens are often reduced to just the main Cur-OSTŪ EQ Total, EQ Plus, Pure EQ or EQ Green with the goal of balancing the inflammatory response daily.  In some cases, after a period of time as the patient is improving, the main Cur-OSTŪ formula being used may be changed to a lower level formula, such as EQ Plus to EQ Green, or EQ Total to EQ Green or Pure EQ to EQ Plus, if that patient is responding well.

The ability to reduce the regimen, adjust to lower required doses and more simplified regimens is patient variable, dependent on the severity of the condition and many contributing factors including stress, diet, environmental and even proper foot care.
