An all natural immune boosting and gentle detox formula for horses.
Why do horses need a detox? Chemical based feeds put toxins into the body, as do chemical de-wormers, vaccinations, chronic pain, unfiltered water supplies, fertilizers in hay products, and medications. These toxins build up in the body and as time goes by the body gets clogged up, much as a drain needing a drain cleaner. If the body does not find a way to clean itself out, then it breaks down, leading to sickness, injury, pain and arthritis. Keeping the body flushed of toxins leads to a healthier body, whether horse or human.
Cootie Kicker is a recipe that combines detoxing with immune boosting. It is highly effective at flushing toxins out of the body, and repairing and boosting the immune system. Cootie Kicker may be used in small doses for a gentle detox or larger doses for a quicker more powerful detox (use with caution at higher levels!). Its ability to boost the immune system helps the body to heal faster, whether from sickness or injury. Because of the variety of herbs used, it is packed FULL of a variety of vitamins and minerals! At lower doses may safely be used long term as a vitamin supplement. Detoxing is necessary for horse with liver and kidney issues but needs to be slow and gentle.
May be used before relocating to boost the immune system which helps the body handle stress.
Use before and after vaccinations to help alleviate symptoms like shot reactions.
During periods of heavy training, may be used to support the immune system which will help with muscle recovery.

Use for average 1000lb horse is 16oz per month. (2 Tablespoons per day) Length of detoxing depends on toxin levels and health of horse. Average first detox is 3 months/2 times per year. Horse with chronic health issues may need to detox more often and first detox may be 4-6 months. Detoxing too quickly can cause adverse reactions. Our detox formula is meant to be slow, so the immune system can keep up with the detoxing action of the mix.
