Frustrated with IR! (Thyro L Question)
My IR Pony just had her check up. Even with the change in diet (grazing muzzle, limited grazing, soaked grass hay), added Mag/Chrom suppliments and exercise, she's STILL a 7 and has a cresty neck and fatty croup. CURSE YOU, PONY!!!!!
The vet said if I was really frustrated, I could put her on Thyro L which would jumpstart her weightloss, but he said it 'was up to me' at this time because she is not getting worse. Basically, we've hit a plateau.
Anyone here have a horse on Thyro L?? What are your experiences? Is it economical? Miracle worker? Because I feel like I need a miracle!!
He said I could also try an IR specific suppliment, and I tried Target IR by VetAMix but she wouldn't eat it. I haven't tried the Smartpak IR. Wondering if I should just cut out wasting time fooling about with this or that suppliment and go with the Thyro L ...
If anyone has a similar experience and you found something that worked wonderfully (other than Target IR!), please please let me know. And if you have used Thyro L, please let me know your experiences. Thanks!
