Horse owners
All horse owners should have this on hand! I own 4 horses and they have all had colic over the past 7 years. I ran out of the medicine and by the time I was able to find someone local with some on hand I had to take my horse to the vet to have a tube put through her nose to relieve the colic impact. If I would have had this on hand like I normally do it would have saved me a $400 emergency vet bill. Keep it on hand first sign of colic give horse her dose, horse should be ready to eat in 40 minutes....if not then call your vet! (My horse is fine now, I have a great vet team for my horses, but please do keep a tube of this on hand!)
