hugs to all of you! What an ordeal this has been and continues to be.
He is one lucky horse.
Just to drive home the dangers of Johnson Grass:
Five or so years ago, my eye doctor lost a cow to Johnson Grass. He had that area fenced off but, cows being what they are, she managed to poke her fat self thru the fence to that Johnson Grass------------ and died an agonizing death, right there in the field.
He performed his own autopsy and lab tests confirmed the cow died from cyanide poisoning in the Johnson Grass. My eye doctor said he didn't need those lab tests, as he could tell by looking at her insides she had been poisoned but, he sent the matter anyway
It's bad enough to get a few stems of that stuff in a normal bale of grass/mix hay but, anyone who knowingly bales and sells mixed Johnson Grass hay needs their head examined. No livestock (horses ARE livestock) should be eating that garbage.
We have a big patch fenced off. I thought it was gone but alas, it seemed overnight I drove past that field and the stuff was six feet tall. That and Pokeweed are the two big things I wish I could bomb right out of the soil OP
, I have no idea, at this juncture of your horse's life, if herbs might help him since his main issue now appears to be muscle control.
At any rate, these products are prescription only. My insulin resistant horse would most likely be dead without the Hot Hoof l. My vet has prescribed one or two other products for another horse; they were successful treating his digestive tract issues when nothing else was.
Check the zip codes in the green bar on the left to see if there is a vet near you, who sells these herbs. You have brought this horse from the Throes of Death, you're not out anything but another check to a vet, if there's a remote chance something Dr. Xie sells might help in some way Welcome to Dr. Xie's Jingtang Herbal
