Case Study - Low Immunity

When Sparty arrived to his new property he was very undernourished and quite dull. 


Dr Nikita attended him for a check-up. She ran a series of blood tests which indicated that he was very immunosuppressed which concurred with his low BCS (Body Condition Score).  He was also found to have an infestation of lice which had caused him to itch and rub a large area of his coat off.

Along with some rinse treatments for the lice, Dr Nikita recommended Digestive Eq to be added to his diet of fresh grass and Lucerne hay.  


This was the result 6 weeks later when his new coat grew through!  

Here is a recent photo of Sparty with his natural summer coat.  He is looking and feeling a million dollars now which speaks to how healthy his gut microbes have become.”
