What Makes Your Supplement Better Than Others On The Market?

Thursday, March 19th, 2015 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

My 17 year old OTTB gelding suffers from severe arthritis, DJD, bone changes in his stifle. Most people say a supplement in the feed is a waste of money.

What makes your assimilation better than that of Cosequin/Acti-flex and the other 1000s on the market.

What levels of Chondroitin and Glucosamine does the OCD pellets contain? My current supplement contains 8,000 of glucosamine and 4,000 of Chondroitin Sulfate. Why only 50mg of HA, when most products offer 100 to 125?

I am curious what makes it better than the current supplement I am on…

Does OCD Promote Bone Regeneration?

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

I have a 14 year old Welsh pony that belongs to my daughter. We are having surgery on her right front foot to debride the coffin bone due to an infection from an abscess. I am looking for proven supplements to help in the recovery process and to promote bone regeneration.
Thanks Tammy

Will this product benefit my horses?

Thursday, January 9th, 2014 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

Hi I would like to know if this product would be of benefit for two of my horses. First I have a 4 year old Arabian colt who I’m riding but he still has seemingly open knees and slight calf kneed conformation. I do not want to push him but I wish he was stronger in this area. And another arabian mare 12 years old horse who has a clicking in the left rear fetlock or pastern area in collected dressage work only sometimes I have a vet do an exam on her and they couldn’t find anything wrong with her but there is a loud cracking on collected canter left lead and certain other movements and I can tell it bothers her when it’s happening. Let me know what you think.
Thank you, April

Six-month-old foal recently diagnosed with OCD

Thursday, January 10th, 2013 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

Good morning,

I have a six-month-old foal which was recently diagnosed with OCD. He wasn’t overfed so getting condition off him wasn’t any concern. My vet told me to feed him lightly and keep him stabled. What a disaster! We had only just purchased him in the middle of November  Thankfully,  I found you on the internet. I hope and pray that we will have good news in a few months. I am just wondering if we should continue with the small feeds and keep him stable bound?

Regards, Josephine

What is the precise composition of your products?

I noticed while looking at the ingredients of OCD Pellets on your website, I cannot find the precise composition of your products. In particular, I would like to know how much minerals such as Zn, Cu, Ca, and P are in your products.

Can foals benefit?

Will foals get the benefit of OCD while on broodmares who are getting OCD as a daily ration? When should foals be started on OCD, when weaned or while still nursing?

Starting Gelding on OCD Pellets soon

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

I will be starting my 8-year-old TB gelding on OCD Pellets soon. I already have him on a trace mineral supplement (Power Horse). Since the OCD Pellets contain only sulfur, copper, manganese, boron, and aluminum, should I continue feeding Power Horse or is there no need for it anymore? I don’t want to overdose or provide an incorrect ratio of nutrients to my horse.

Will OCD pellets help him regrow cartilage in my 7 year old thoroughbred gelding?

Friday, September 3rd, 2010 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

Hey Doc, I have a 7 year old thoroughbred gelding that we raced up until this year. We were training him in the spring and everything was goin good. A couple weeks later we had his left ankle x-rayed and there is almost no cartilage what so ever where his bones met. The vet said to lay him off 6 to 12 months. Will OCD pellets help him regrow cartilage so we will be able to run him again?

Quarter Horse With Unusual Knots

Monday, April 5th, 2010 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

Dr. Beebe,

I have a Quarter Horse broodmare who came up with a knot that looks like she may have been kicked. Our vet seems to think it is arthritis. We just got her pregnant, too. Is it okay to feed OCD Pellets to her, or should we wait till later? We have a three week old Quarter Horse foal that has just started eating grain. Would it be alright to feed it to her? It says it is for pregnant mares and then it talks about feeding the mare the second trimester. So I need to know if it is okay to feed it to her now with no complications. Thank you for your time, I do appreciate it.


Will OCD Pellets Help My 8yo With Subcondylar Cyst

Saturday, November 8th, 2008 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

Dr. Beebe,

I have some questions – I have two weanlings and a yearling that so far have no soundness issues, but I don’t want to wait until I do. Is it OK to feed them the OCD pellets as a prevention and if so, for how long? I also have an 8 yr old with a subcondylar cyst in her P2 rear leg – the University tried drilling to release pressure, but it’s still there. Will this help her? (more…)

Will OCD Help Other Areas Besides Leg Bones?

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

Dr. Beebe,

I am inquiring to know if your product OCD would have any beneficial effect on an 18 year old TB show jumper. The reason I consider using it is that he has had a bone cyst on his right lower jaw that stayed infected for about a year, and we are sure of some bone loss due to the infection and slight necrotic tissue. The vet has debrided it and we are treating the infection, but would OCD have any effect in helping new bone rebuild itself in that part of the body even if it’s not a leg? (more…)
