Can you check as the whether or not your customs will allow a herbal package through customs?
I will send you some NAF D-tox which is my miracle cure for all ails.
This is the list of ingredients
Grape pulp, Vit. C, Zinc/Copper amino acid chelate, Manganese amino acid chelate, Multiple source citrus bioflavonoids, Beta-Carotene, Alpha-Lipoic acid, Curcuma longa, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Pantothenic acid, Vitamin and Mineral Premix, Aromatic Herbs.
When Nick, the vet first brought it out I had a young horse that was suffering from a viral infection. This had been on going for two years. In the end he was more or less bald, and also suffering fro Cauda Equina, which is when the immune system turns on the nerve endings and cause paralysis. He was tested positive for this and at that time there was no hope for him.
Nick sent me the D-tox and also Equimune and we started him on that. Within 24 hours he was brighter in himself, he went on to make a good recovery. The effects of the CE caused him to always drag his back feet but he went on to be a useful hunt horse.
If you can purchase the D-tox from NAF out there then there will be no problem getting it through customs. I know they sell it in Australia, not sure about NZ. I get it trade price so it is only the postage which, if it is like USA works out cheaper than buying it there.
Thanks for that I can get NAF D-tox here but it is over the moon cost wise and I have to wait 4-6 weeks so held back on ordering it. I have found a product recommended that is readly available and have put both horses on it. Boy their poo stinks so it has done something.
Stella has rubbed her shoulders raw in places and she does not like being touched but I managed to get the neem oil on her today. Her shoulders and chest. She is now standing in the paddock with a p---ed off look on her face My moneys on she got a taste of it. It is thick, I hope I have not over done it. She did not want to know me after the cold shower and now if she has tasted the stuff I won't get near her for a week.
I have contacted a company in NZ that has a number of products for mood, detox and mineral supplements and are waiting for a responce from them.
I think over all I have to look at ballancing all her systems. I have also been told if it is myco toxins it will take some time to get right.
Another thought is her immune system may have become over sensitive. But I don't want to go there at this time.
I have to work for the next 4 days so wont be able to put in the time required. Start in the dark and finish in the dark and can't get away with chucking a sickie for the week. So it will be a trying week. I am also taking her off the grass and putting her in the Jenny Craig paddock she will be living mostly on high fibre, low cal and very little sugar and supplements.
There is a silver lining. No Ticks on Stella and the insects seem to be leaving her alone. That stuff does put off every thing, even she who must has taken to going out. Might as well go and sit with the horse at least we smell the same.
As her skin is now so sensitive, no riding at all, not even bare back. Guess what folks I am now taking the bigest dog you have ever seen for its evening strolls And I am also taking a large dogy poop bag. In NZ we call it a wheelbarrow.
