Protecting The Liver

By 21/09/2018May 8th, 2020No Comments

Everything that a horse eats or drinks must pass through its liver, which in the horse is surprisingly small in proportion to its size and the enormous amount work it has to undertake throughout its life which in comparison with other animals is a long one. Also compared with other animals the horse’s liver is more likely to be assaulted by potentially hazardous chemicals such as contaminants, therapeutic compounds such as wormers, antibiotics, steroids, painkillers etc and by the insidious effects of stress.

It is, therefore, no wonder that the horse’s liver function can at times be impaired. Not, fortunately, in too many life-threatening ways but from time to time enough to cause many horses to regularly go ‘off form’, to be lethargic and generally out of salts and some horses to be always ‘less than healthy’ due to one function of the liver or another not performing at an optimum level. Such variances in liver function, which cannot always be detected by simple tests, are often overlooked when considering the probable cause of a lack of performance or well being.

Feed L94 at the first signs of a horse or pony being off form or the occurrence of a raised pulse and swellings/heat in the feet to re-enforce, sustain liver function and importantly the unique bile salts of the Equine species that “cleanse & clean” and sustain pancreatic, splenic and kidney function. Feed as a 10-day course or longer to support animals with severe liver damage. L94 gently disperses and promotes excretion of accumulated poisonous substances and metabolites that have been ingested, inhaled or acquired as morbid products of inflammation and disease. It has a biochemical action on cell wastes and toxins breaking them down preparatory to the body eliminating them and stimulating the organs of elimination from the liver, kidneys, skin and bowel.
