It’s nothing new that I am doing the treatments of Baldur alone, but yesterday we got to document it as well. This is the second time I have done treatment on Baldur, and it’s not looking too bad.
I found one of the spots on the darker skin that I thought I might as well put some treatment on, as they look like the papillomas. Better to be treated than not, I guess? I had a veterinarian come out to drug him with Plegicil to let him drop, and I did the rest myself. It’s easier for me this way. Being able to look closely by myself(I have been through this too many times and know exactly how it’s supposed to look), and treat him alone is also the cheapest option.
The veterinarian has sent in an application to get a prescription on Plegicil gel, so that I can try to drug him myself again. Since the regular sedative gel(Domosedan) didn’t work well enough on him, I have to try to get Plegicil. The thing is that it’s not prescribed to just anyone, so I hope I get it. It would make everything much easier and not least cheaper.
I am still thinking back at how well Baldur has been and is handling the treatments. I was told by my regular veterinarian that the horses who are treated can get tired, loose spark and have big wounds in the area of treatments. Baldur has done impeccable and he has shown no sign of change in behavior, and he is as energetic as always. I think a lot of this is thanks to the supplement I have fed Baldur on for the last 3 years. It’s called Witanor Horse, and it is enzymes and probiotics. The wounds from the chemo treatments heal so fast.
Not only does it help with keeping the lactic acid at bay, but it has done wonders on Baldur. He used to be so hyper before and run off in a bolt any time he seemed fit. But I think Witanor helps to keep him sane and “down to earth”. And of course, it helps a lot on his summer eczema. Less itching and more mane and tail growth! I should also mention that ever since I started Baldur on this supplement, he has never had a bad stomach. His muck is always nice and firm(I know horse people love to inspect poop). He doesn’t even get travel stomach, nor does he react to sudden change of feed.
Have you heard about Witanor? And would you try it if you had the chance? I know that a lot of Norwegians swear by this supplement(as do I). I know that it is being sold world wide as well! You can check out their website here, by the way!
