“D’arcy started suffering from allergies six months ago and at first I thought he was just feeling unwell, so I didn’t ride him for a while. However, the symptoms continued and worsened and it was horrible to see D’arcy desperately trying to scratch his nose on the ground, his headshaking, and his watery eyes– he looked so distressed. I knew it was time to do something about this problem.
D’arcy started getting immunotherapy shots for both food and environmental allergies in November of last year, but the serum did not cover all of his allergens. In February of this year, D'arcy started receiving shots every two to three days but unfortunately this didn’t relieve all of his allergy symptoms. He still had a great need to scratch his nose!
I heard about the 100% natural remedy called NostrilVet from my trainer while we were both fiercely searching the Internet trying to find anything that might aide D’arcy. I’d heard it had some great clinical trial evidence behind it and was impressed that other horse owners were seeing success with it even though it is 100% natural.
D’arcy was a bit nervous when I started pumping NostrilVet up his nostrils, but he began to get used to it after a couple of days. It quickly made a significant difference and within the couple of months I’ve been using it, it has given me my horse back so we can ride and we are also back in training too! Now he only receives two immunotherapy shots once a week and the length of time will stretch to a month between shots in about five weeks.
D’arcy receives three NostrilVet bottle squeezes each day before I work him on the lunge line and before I ride him. Usually D’arcy needs fifteen minutes on the lunge line so he can get his sneezes out, but since I started using NostrilVet, the need to put him on the lunge line has waned in the last few weeks.
On one occasion, when there was a high pressure weather system sweeping the area, D'arcy's symptoms intensified, even with the shots. Last week, when I brought D'arcy in to the stable he was quite agitated and couldn’t stop trying to scratch his nose. I gave him six squirts of NostrilVet in each nostril, and within minutes he settled completely. NostrilVet takes the compulsion to scratch down considerably and allows him to focus.
D'arcy loves to work and NostrilVet relieves the itchiness in his nose and allows him to focus. It is so fantastic to be back in the saddle again!”
