Dr. Dan the Natural Vet

I was wondering if anyone uses any of his products...Red Cal, Just Add Oats, Bug Check. I stumbled onto his web site, he recommends simply feeding your horse oats, a vitamin, mineral supplement (of course he recomends his line of products which are quite expensive). I could not find a thread about him on the forum....just wondering if anyone uses his products and/or subscribes to his thoughts on feeding your horse. Thanks!

It's interesting that you posted this question today because I was just searching for the same topic. I have been considering switching to the Just Add Oats and oats. I used it about five years ago, and I didn't have any problem with it except I got tired of adding the Just Add Oats at every feeding. Now that my horses need a hoof supplement along with their feed, I'm thinking about switching back. I noticed that the Just Add Oats has a lot of Biotin per serving, which could eliminate the need for a hoof supplement. I also used the Bug Check before and was happy with it, although Dan's products are a bit pricey. I hope someone else will add their opinion.

I hadn't heard of this product before, but I don't think it's something I would be be interested in for my horse. First, it's really expensive. For 1-1/3 oz daily (nearly 10% of which is salt), it costs about the same as 1-1/4 lbs of Triple Crown 30% Supplement (what I feed my horse now). Most of his article "For the Health of the Horse Feed Oats" could just as easily be promoting any given ration balancer or vitamin/mineral supplement. After reading it, I'm still not sure why oats are any better than a grain-free diet.

It's certainly a good source of biotin, but doesn't seem like it has enough of other vitamins & minerals.
