Helps horses that can't sweat and helps thermal regulation. Not a cure for anhydrosis but has been shown to be effective if the problem is an imbalance of dopamine to the nor-adrenaline/adrenaline complex.
Feed 1 tsp in the AM and PM per 1,100 lbs body weight.
Note: Strenuous training or work must be reduced to a minimum for 3 weeks if maximum results are to be achieved. Also walking to maintain muscle tone is suggested, but keep the heartbeat below 80 beats per minute.
After 3 weeks, training and work can be continued.
"What a Relief!"
About a month ago, I noticed my 5 year old Appendix had stopped sweating -- in July in Alabama -- and my trainer recommended this product. The label says to give it three weeks to work. It took abut two and a half weeks, but it worked! Today it's a freakishly cool 75 degrees in August, but he had the loveliest sweat marks I've ever seen. I'll keep him on it until fall and start back in the spring. Thank you Jeffers and One AC!
This product has saved my daughters Thoroughbred horse. First summer we had him he collapsed in the pasture and we thought he was going to die. Vet came in a hurry and we found out he was a non-sweater. Started him on One AC and he's been fine ever since (3 years). I still spray him with cool water when the temperature is very hot but, on those days when I can't, he's fine. I start the product in mid March and continue through November. One AC is worth a try if your horse has anhydrosis.
Absolutely love this stuff so far. My horse stoped sweating at the start of the summer and worried me with all his puffing. Within a week of starting the supplement I stared seeing sweat patches. Within two weeks he was back to sweating like everyone else.
My Shire/TB mare failed to sweat the first hot day at a lesson the first summer I had her - temp rose to 106! She was panting, and I feared she would collapse. Hosed with cold water to get temp down, and started her on One-AC. She sweated fine all summer & fall, and I stopped product in November. Following spring - same problem of not sweating first hot day of hard work. Started One-AC again, and she was fine all summer and fall. Now I start the product in early to mid-March, and use it through mid-Nov every year - never had a problem with Anhydrosis since! I've had her for seven years now!
