I bought this to have on hand since my B.E.L.L.S. drops were gone and I couldn't find them anywhere. Our mare colicked last evening, so we gave her the tube and walked her. Within 45 mins, she was feeling better and wanted to eat her dinner. No vet call and she's fine today! I'm ordering another tube to have on hand and won't ever be without it. Great product that really works!!
I usually have a tube of this on hand-just "in case". I did have to use a tube on one of our ponies recently with good results. (She was showing signs of mild colic) I purchased a tube to replace the one I used, but noticed that the label was different, and the "new" tube had LESS ingredients. I called the phone # for the company(which I think is someone's house by the way they answered the phone) asked about the ingredients, which they seemed surprised to hear, but then said "hey less is better, right?" I am ok with that, but when I asked why there was NO EXPERATION DATE on the new tubes (like the old ones had) she said, "oh it's good for 2 years" OK, but how do I know when it was manufactured and when the 2 years are up? I ended up writing on the tube so I knew when I purchased it. I like the product, but their new packaging is not the best. (the old tubes were also shrink-wrapped)
I have 2 horses and I'm a retired vet tech. My gelding had colic a few months ago and thankfully I had some old Banamine that I could use that did the trick. I got this so I wouldn't be caught off guard in case an emergency arose.
This product DID NOT WORK! Tried on my horse as soon as I saw him sick, walked for about an hour, still sick, had to call the vet. He was not impressed by this product at all.
I purchased on a whim, hoping I would never have to use this and chucked it in my first aid supply, just to meet my free ship requirement. It had amazing reviews on google.Well an old horse, a rain storm and a hurricane later, my 19 year got his first colic episode after being stall bound. While under distress, saw horse stance, descended and in obvious high level gastric pain, this made an incredible impact very quickly with some gentle hand walking. I was thrilled. I will have this on hand for life. I wanted to phone the company and thank them. Don't be caught with JUST the vets phone number, be your horse's hero and have this in your barn! The soothing effects of Ginger are immediate... this isn't just some modified corn starch gum with a Farnam Label, its straight shot of well studied quality herbs that preform. Thank you, Silver Lining!
