The following healing scenario is an example
of what to expect as your horse gradually improves and symptoms
disappear using Capstar Equine Products.
Before initiating Capstar, horse's initial symptoms were aggravated
- sensitive to bridal
- when eating
After beginning Capstar, horse's head shaking symptoms
begin to improve. The following is an example of a healing progression.
1. First Week - horse seems calmer even through head shaking symptoms
still exist. Horse is able to eat without head shaking.
2. Second Week - head shaking symptoms less severe and less often.
3. Third Week - now able to touch horse's skin without eliciting
a reaction. Horse is greatly improved in the rain. Head shaking
symptoms are less severe although still present.
4. Fourth Week - head shaking symptoms gone most of the time.
Only shows during periods of stress.
5. Fifth Week - head shaking symptoms are almost completely gone.
Horse handles all situations.
6. Sixth Week - Capstar is discontinued. Will need to wait and
see if any symptoms return the following spring.
7. The Following Spring (from absolute worse case to absolute
Absolute Worse Case - Horse was vaccinated in spring instead
of summer, head shaking symptoms will definitely return. The
horse's picture has been complicated because we do not know
if we are dealing with an aggravation from the vaccine or symptoms
from the previous year. Symptoms will need to be analyzed and
a new Capstar remedy will be chosen based on new symptom picture.
Worse Case - Horse was vaccinated in the summer. In 99% of
these cases, the original head shaking symptoms will return
in addition to new symptoms. All the symptoms will need to be
re-analyzed and a new Capstar remedy will be chosen based on
this new picture of symptoms.
Best Case - Since beginning Capstar, horse has not been vaccinated
as recommended, but horse displays very mild head shaking symptoms
in the spring. First, we proceed with the Capstar remedy that
was used the previous year. If no improvement, then we select
a new Capstar remedy that will address these new mild symptoms.
Symptoms will usually quickly disappear and will not return
the following spring unless the horse is then re-vaccinated.
Absolute Best Case - Since beginning Capstar, horse has not
been vaccinated as recommended, and all head shaking symptom
are permanently removed and none returned the following spring.
Your horse seems much happier and calmer.
