General Disclaimer: Our remedies are formulated to support the natural immune system of horses, pets and livestock. We do not claim to treat, medicate or cure any health conditions. If you are worried an animal may be in pain or suffering please contact your veterinarian.

Made in New Zealand. 100% Natural and Non-toxic. Homeopathic Preparation.

Contains equal parts of: Borax, Calc-carb, Gelsemium, Ignatia, Stramonium
Base: Vegetable glycerine & purified water 

How to dose:
A dose consists of 2 pumps of remedy onto the tongue, gums or lips. Can also be given on a piece of food. Most horses love the sweet taste but if your horse is nervous about being dosed, you can put the dose on your finger and dab it on their lips or gums. They do not need to swallow the dose, it just has to come into contact with their tongue or gums.

How often to dose:
When first using this remedy, dose twice a day for 7 days, then stop dosing and observe for the next week. If symptoms are still present repeat the 7 day dosing period. Once behaviour has improved stop dosing but store the remedy in a cool place in case the behaviour is triggered again, at which point you would do the 7 days dosing (twice a day). 

Note: the effect is cumulative and you are likely to see improved results over a period of 3-5 days. This remedy is not suitable for dosing via the water trough. 

Example - Dosing
We sometimes get asked whether the 7 days of initial dosing is necessary. Here's some more information on using Separation Anxiety - Equine:
We recommend all horses with separation anxiety are given 2 doses a day for 7 days, whether or not they are experiencing anxiety that week.
This week of dosing can sometimes be enough on its own to reduce or stop the feelings of panic or anxiety when being separated.
After this first week of dosing, people can then stop regular daily dosing and instead dose their horses only on days when they need it, maybe just at weekends when a horse is leaving his mate behind to compete at a show. On those days, the potentially anxious horse can be given a dose in the morning (they will have noticed the preparations going on and will be anticipating being left behind) and then another dose about half an hour before being left. You can always give a 3rd dose on the same day if needed, though it is a strong blend so it would be unusual to give more than 4 doses over a day.  

Packaging - dose delivery

Remedies are dispensed in a 90ml food grade aluminium bottle with a hygienic serum pump lid with over-cap. 

90ml bottle = 230 doses

Wonderful

This product made separating my very anxious gelding away from his herd calm and stress free. There was no fence running or calling. If I had tried this without this product he would of plowed a trench in the paddock.

Separation Anxiety

1 horse completely relaxed & doesn't care when I take his mate away. The 2nd horse is probably more emotional (being a mare) it's definitely helped, I wouldn't say completely fixed but a huge noticeable difference. I guess each horse is different & the mare's old habits are a separate issue. Am confident in time it will sort itself out.

Really happy with it’s affect

I have a 10yr TB mare who has been sitting in the paddock for the last 2yrs and gets super anxious as soon as one of the other horses move eg: runs fences, kicks out etc. I found that giving her a couple of doses before I do anything with the other horses or herself she is a lot calmer and easier to deal with

It's all about how you use it

I issue a dose when I put halter on, another when they are tied for grooming and tacking up then again before mounting or leaving the yard/loading. If they 'activate' a top-up is needed some are good to go after three doses others need regular topping up.

If they go 'right off the deep end' you've lost the battle and another remedy maybe required like spook buster.

I've really found it useful for napping behaviour that makes it frustrating to maintain focus when working - ie they're checking out what their friends are doing instead of listening and tuning in. Also when they need to travel on their own and find it hard to load since it means going out alone.

The remedies help them cope and stay within threshold - but it's not a sedative or a miracle cure that transform your firebreathing dragon into a pusscat!

Separation Anxiety spray

Not too sure about this product yet. I have a young horse who gets very attached to others. He’s great at home but terrible at events if he’s travelled with another horse & that horse goes away from him. I’ve only tried the spray once so far, but in fairness, should have done it before he lost the plot, rather than during. Will keep on with it and see if it helps. Will update my review as I go. It’s worth a crack. There aren’t many products around for this problem, so recommend giving it a go. Just plan to do the spray before taking the other horse away, so it has time to do it’s thing before anxiety is likely to kick in, rather than when it’s in full swing.

Hippo Health

Hi Pam, thanks for your feedback. I would recommend giving your boy a 5 day induction of twice daily dosing (if you haven't already tried this). You dose for the 5 days whether or not he needs it, with the aim of reducing the intensity of the anxiety when separation happens in the future. So do the 5 days and then after that, just dose on days that you know he'll be separated, eg going to a show. Give him a dose that morning and then (if practical) a second dose about 20-30 mins before the separation. We'd love to hear how you get on.
