I have used the micro-current unit on a number of horses with varying injuries over the last 4 months.
I was first introduced to the system as a very promising 6 year old jumping stallion fractured his pastern which required surgical pinning. Post operative recovery involved 8 weeks of being double tied with the injured leg in a cast. The horse was fractious and depressed with his situation and his legs were swelling and the prognosis for long term recovery was consequently poor.
I was told the microcurrent would aid healing and would keep the horse’s whole system working – which would alleviate his depression and calm him down generally.
I started with the system the day it arrived and used the same programme every day then on without fail.
To put it simply it worked. The horse calmed down and accepted his situation. Instead of constant weight shifting and pulling at the restraining tie ropes, he stood and ate his hay 24/7. He gained weight, stopped sweating and after one month we had the pastern re- x rayed and the bone had healed with a barely visible line; there were no rough edges to the bone, the pins were stable and intact. His 8 weeks of being double tied was reduced to 6 weeks as healing was so quick.
It is now four months after surgery and the horse is back into walking work and he is sound.
Since then, we have had a spate of quite major injuries with our horses, from high suspensory strain to a high goal polo pony, a kicked and punctured hock to a young polo pony in the field and a broken cannon bone and severed artery to a brood mare. For all these injuries I have of course sought veterinary advice but each time I have used the micro-current unit in conjunction with the treatment from the vet. On all these injuries the vet has been pleasantly surprised at how well, and how quickly, all have healed - against their expectation. I can only put this accelerated healing down to the micro-current system.
My grooms are now used to putting the system on any horse with minor strains, or injuries, such as puss in the foot. We all see it work – it is easy, can’t harm the horse and turns mountains into mole hills – which is good for the horse and for all of us.
