How I mitigated my Horse's allergies with Cavalor
Cade was a 2014 christmas gift from my father. When I went to try Cade out, he was covered head-to-toe in hives, his coat was dull, he coughed and needed some weight. Even with all that, he had the sweetest personality. My mom and I convinced my dad that his issues were minor and for the price he was worth it, because we would have to up our budget to get quality, personality and no issues. The barn he was boarded at used Cavalor and that's how I became familiar with the products. When we moved him home, the barn I was at was feeding timothy hay. Within hours of eating the hay, the vet had to come out because Cade was having breathing trouble. I got a allergy test with over 100 things he was allergic to. I could not get rid of everything but I could mitigate it. Three major things he was allergic to: Oats, barley, and Timothy Hay. I switched him to Cavalor Fiberforce mid 2015. He has done very well on it for the past 5 years with no major allergy attack from feed based products. I did move to a barn with tried to swhich him to Seminole feed and Cade just refused to eat it. He did not like the texture. I now supply my own feed at a full boarding facility.. When my vet found out I fed Cavalor, he said "Oh, you feed the fancy stuff." I think of Cavalor feed is like shopping at Wholefoods while some other feed is like shopping at Wind-Dixie. I have used other Cavalor products such as switch, dryfeet, equiwash, and vitacrunch. I like all the products but just have to make sure my horse isn't allergic before using.
