Reviews for HEAVE HO – Heaves/COPD
My NEW horse just coughed and coughed and coughed while eating his hay and being ridden. It was to the point where I was going to refrain from riding, experiment with different types of hay and call the vet. Then a friend of mine, who is a big Heiro fan, suggested “Heave Ho”. So I purchased Heave Ho and after the first dose, my horse stopped coughing. I was shocked! I followed the instructions on the label anyways, so he had taken the full course that is recommended. I am not kidding, he was fine after the first dose and has not had an episode since! WOW! I did not need to discontinue riding, switch hay or call the vet! YAY!!! Bo and I have been able to enjoy our summer trail rides! What a blessing your product has been for us! I highly recommend Heave Ho. Thanks Dr. Reilly!

NO Heaving Whatsoever
When I got home after work I went to check her breathing and there was NO heaving whatsoever, YEAH!!! I know it may flare up again but to see her breathing normal was awesome.

I’ve Found The Golden Ticket
I was searching for common mullein for Heaves and found your product. We have been using it for 7 days….so far I say “miraculous!” She’s MUCH improved. The other 2 heavey horses on our farm are really struggling. Keeping my fingers crossed, but have a feeling deep down in my gut that I’ve found the golden ticket.

Canter For The First Time In 20 Years
Just wanted to give you an update on Angel since I spoke to you in Harrisburg at the Expo. Since then, we had our clinic with Dale Cunningham, Certified Clinician from Clinton Anderson. Well, she did awesome, no breathing issues whatsoever with her. He had cantered her quite a bit and she did extremely awesome thanks to your product. I can not express my gratitude to you that would suffice on how pleased and relieved I am for your help with her with her COPD. I am riding her now, myself, and being able to canter her for the first time in 20 some years and she is just amazing. Thank you, again, for giving me my Angel back.

Lot of Improvement
I have been using Heave Ho for three weeks and am seeing a lot of improvement. Is it ok to ride when he is breathing better? I need to order another shipment.
Janet – Kentucky, May 2017
Alexus is coughing less and is doing much better. She has a lot of energy but when she runs around in the pasture does get heavey.

Heave Ho With Vit E Just Plain Works
I use Heave Ho. My Vet put my horse on Trihist when she developed an allergic COPD that never quit…That made her nasal passages bright red and she still had discharge and rapid breathing – only the steroid injections worked. Heave Ho with Vitamin E just plain works.

Changed Breathing to Normal
Heave Ho has helped our 20-year-old Friesian mare with seasonal breathing problems…heat and humidity, she pants all day. Heave Ho has changed her breathing to normal during the seasonal heat. We love this. Have tried steroids and all kinds of supplements with no results like Heave Ho.

Very Quick Results
I want to give you an update on my horse who has been coughing for about 3 weeks, I suspect due to my hay. He was coughing in the field, and especially after I’d bring him in to eat. He’d also cough about every 20 minute under saddle. I started him on the Heave Ho and Thyro-L you provided, and I saw results within 48 hours. I was able to take him foxhunting and he only coughed once in 2 1/2 hours of strenuous work! He’s not coughing at all anymore after eating. I am very pleased with his progress. Thank you!

In the Saddle Again
I just wanted to update you on Dancer. The combination of your new Heave Ho Formula and Thyro-L has worked wonders. I was able to ride him last weekend at the walk/trot with no coughing or shortness of breath. It was fantastic to be in the saddle again.

She Can Breathe Better
She is doing so much better with the regimen you suggested. I am ecstatic. Thank you very much. I can’t put into words to tell you how much better I feel and how she feels because she can breathe better.

Heave Ho – Such A Big Difference
Just had to drop you all a note. I really thought I was going to have to put my horse down this year. She has been suffering so much with Heaves. She has been on your Heave Ho for 10 days and it’s such a big difference for her! Thank you so much. She feels so much better and that makes me feel better too! I think she will be fine this summer.

Breathing Is Better
Her breathing is better (much better really) but I can still see that it is not back to normal. Since my last email, I would say she has gone from 58% recovery to say 78% her nasal discharge has cleared up, her cough is gone but she is not quie100%. All this is quite amazing as she literally was closed to death in August, The Dex. Pulled her through. Until I could find your product. Your Heave Ho was a last resort and since I already had her on the Vitamin E and Omega 3 supplements it seems to be finally kicking in for her. I will check with my Vet on the Thyroid condition and the Naxcel. Thank you!

Heave Ho & Health-E In One Container
Please tell me how to order the new Heave Ho & Vitamin E in the same container. Don’t want to run out. Thanks & Love this product. My horse is doing wonderfully!!!!
Judy – Texas, December 2016
I have been using your protocol on my gelding for several weeks, and have noticed an astonishing improvement. I am so happy with your products.

Taking More Voluntary Exercise: Trotting/Cantering Field
Thought I’d give you an update on Fine Touch (“Mary”), our mare with COPD. She is about to finish her second jar of Heave Ho, and I have just ordered two more. We are still giving it twice a day along with other supplements, 7cc Albuterol, and twice a day PEMF therapy with the BEMER. I think the “gang approach” you advised is working!! She has enjoyed several days of much-improved respiration. In fact, yesterday, you had to look really closely to see her sides moving at all. Her respiration has come down from as high as 60 to 28-36 breaths per minute. Minimal coughing; occasional wheezing; little to no mucus production. I believe the cooler weather is also helping her. She has gained weight, her coat is gleaming, and she is taking a lot more voluntary exercise, including trotting and cantering in the field. We will take her back to our Vet in a couple of weeks for further evaluation. We remain optimistic of continued progress. Thanks for all of your help!!

Healthy the Entire Trip
Much improved this year with the use of Heave Ho and THANK YOU. Last year, this horse was very sick on our trip west before starting your regime of products. Just returned for a 10-day trail riding trip in ND Badlands. She did great and was healthy the entire trip.

So Much Better
I’ve had my horse on Heave Ho and Health-E for about a month and she is doing so much better. Wetting her hay has helped too. Its been helping her so much, she looks great and isn’t stressed. Thank you.
Karen – California, September 2016
Cough Completely Gone
Thank you for your prompt response. Esce is doing well. Her cough is completely gone. May it stay that way! Thanks for checking.
Cindy – New Hampshire, September 2016
I have been using Heave Ho and Vitamin E for 1 year with great success. We have not needed any steroid treatment at all. Very pleased with product.

Zoe Breathes In My Ear And It Sounds Clear
Her symptoms were horrible coughing, nasal discharge but she sounded like Darth Vader when she breathed. We grow our own hay and it is pretty clean but at your recommendation I started rinsing her nighttime feeding. I also have her on the Heave Ho and Health-E for about three weeks. She is breathing ten times better. I don’t hear any of the rattling or forced exhale anymore. She breathes in my ear and it sounds clear. This has definitely helped her.

Faithfully Followed Doctor’s Orders – See HUGE Difference
Hi. On July 26, 2016, I consulted with you about my mare having COPD and Coughing after many vet visits and several different types of medicines. The last one was Ventepulium, which helped a lot but is very expensive for using all the time. You recommended Heave Ho, Health-E & Thyro-L. When I received the order I started immediately. I had used all of the Ventepulium 3 days before. She had a slight cough every few mornings but nothing like before. After I have faithfully followed the doctor’s orders with the supplements, soaking her hay for 10 minutes, no dust in stall and soaking her alfalfa cubes, I see a HUGE difference in her mornings and her actions. She doesn’t cough but maybe every few days and then its a hack like. I am so happy with her improvements. Now I need to know what I need to keep her on. Please advise me & dosage so I can order before I use what I have. Thank you so much for your suggestion & advice you gave me.

Running Laps Around Pasture!
Pearl has completely recovered from the attack of Heaves. She is running laps in the pasture again. We celebrated her 30th birthday after all. Thank you so much and God bless you extra!

Moses is Thriving
I just wanted to let y’all know how much I appreciate your product and advice. My horse, Moses, has been on it now for close to 2 months and has completely turned around and is breathing normally, gaining weight, and his energy level has been restored. Thank you so much for your help. It is nice to see him thriving as opposed to just surviving.
Kate – Texas, 2016
Your Product Truly Works
Thank you Equine Medical & Surgical Associates! Thank you so much for giving me my horse back. I tried for two years to find something that would help his heaving, and your product truly works.

Betty – Significant Improvement
I wanted to write you and let you know my mule Betty has shown some significant improvement and I am so thankful for your wonderful product.
Jessica – Illinois, July 2016
It was very hot, so far he is doing good
I am very curious to see how he makes it through this summer and in November. That is usually when his breathing is the worst. I rode him last weekend and it was very hot. So far he is doing good. No Dex for him at all since we have switched to this.
Doris – Florida, June 2016
Life Is So Much Better, even in High Humidity!
The recommended products, Heave Ho and Health-E, have made our horse’s life so much better. He breathes better, even in high humidity. We have watched this carefully and noted a Dramatic improvement in temps of high 90’s with 90+% humidity. This horse had moved from Wyoming where the humidity was sometimes 30% so the change was radical.

Breathing Improved/Energy Improved!
I want to thank you for the Heave Ho you sent for my horse, Summerhawk. She is doing better on the regime you spelled out for me to follow. Breathing has improved and energy has improved. I have yet to get her tested T4, but am doing that next. It’s great to find something that works, is more natural, and doesn’t have negative side effects. Thank you so much.

Within 1 day, Oatis had gone from falling over with the coughing to only coughing lightly at feed time. After 2 weeks, only coughs occasionally.

I Am Just So Thrilled
Ringo started Heave Ho, BID, Monday, July 13th. It has been blistering hot here. Saturday the heat index was 116 with very high humidity. Because of his age, I am especially careful in this heat. I rode him Wednesday and had a great ride. Today, 86 degrees and high humidity, he felt like a Grand Prix 10 year old! He coughed some, but we have had tons of rain and the mold count is ridiculous. I could hardly contain him! His extended trot was powerful and huge! His piaffe and passage were bouyant and elastic. His tempi changes were just outstanding! I had almost given up on EVER feeling that again. Absolutely NOTHING has changed except the addition of Heave Ho to his diet. I am just thrilled! Thank you!
Melanie – Illinois, July 2015
EXCITED TO RIDE AGAIN!
Rebel’s breathing was so bad and the steroids didn’t seem to do much for him anymore. Wasn’t able to ride him. My friend ordered me Heave Ho and Health-E from you. Within 7 days his breathing was better! It’s now been 2 weeks and I can’t believe the improvement. I’m now placing my own order. I’m so excited to be able to ride him again!

BUSTER IS BACK!
I am just writing to you to say thank you for helping me with my horse. Buster has been on Health-E and Heave Ho for about two months now. I decided to give these products a try because of the testimonials that said they got their horse back and that statement was exactly what I needed to hear. For months I battled with Buster’s breathing. I wasn’t above to ride because he was breathing so hard and had no energy. Going out to the barn was almost depressing because I couldn’t find anything to make my horse comfortable. After trying multiple other products and seeing no results, I decided anything was worth a shot. Heave Ho has made a world of difference. Now Buster’s worst days were his best days before and there are even days that you can barely tell he has any breathing problems at all. The Health-E has not only helped Buster’s breathing but his coat shines and his hooves look amazing. I sincerely think that Heave Ho is the best product on the market for Heaves and the people who sell it are knowledgeable and great to work with. Thank you for giving me my horse back!
Elizabeth – Michigan
My sister bought Heave Ho for my horse and it is amazing. Albuterol, currently prescribed, has not been used since starting Heave Ho on May 20, 2015. Flonase has not been used since started on Heave Ho on May 20, 2015.

Dated May 28, 2015 – Only 8 Days!
Amazed, Happy, Shocked:
I am at 14 days of using the Heave Ho and the Vitamin E supplements for my horse. Amazed, happy, shocked, and Yeah. Seems to be working. Has been a long winter and spring with her new respiratory issues. Two Vets and same dx of Heaves and/or allergies. Prednisilone and bronchodilators and hoping for some symptom relief. Your products seem to be as amazing as when I sought help for a rehab horse and used Heiro. I do not want to run out and have been using the double doses as recommended. Now using double dose on Heave Ho only and will reorder soon.

No Coughing. Breathing Normal:
My horse “Fancy” is 16 years old this year and has been suffering from Asthma and COPD for over 4 years at least. She uses an inhaler and we had her on Dex too before using Heave Ho. I was beginning to think that I was going to have to put her down this year as her coughing had gotten so terrible, that she was having problems breathing, eating, and her heart rate was in the 90s. We have been on Heave Ho for approximately 24 days now and it has changed “Fancy’s” life!! No coughing, breathing is normal, she is back to eating all her food, she is whiny-ing again, and her heart rate is in the low 70s, which is good for her. Thank you SO much, We will be your spokes horse any day!

Heave Ho Delivers:
Rocket’s coughing has become progressively worse with age, and recently sounded raspy at night. I found Heave Ho on the internet and the transformation is amazing. He has been on every cough suppressant on the market and I am so relieved to have found you. (He is too!) I have his half brother, a newly acquired QH Chance, and Paladin (RUI), all on the Vitamin E supplement also, as our pastures are sparse. Thank you so much for a great product that really does deliver!
Patricia – North Carolina, April 2015
I have to tell you – The Heave Ho is a Miracle! Within ONE DAY Oatis had gone from almost falling over with the coughing to only coughing lightly at feed time. I was so hopeful that this product would provide relief but didn’t expect that relief so quickly and thoroughly. He has only been on it for 2 weeks. He now only coughs occasionally. Glad I met and talked with you at the Ohio Equine Affaire.

Got My Ginger Back:
I just wanted to tell you I GOT MY HORSE BACK!!!! For 2 years Ginger has had no stamina or energy to go beyond a trot due to her heaves and mild arthritis. The last time I rode her, her lungs made a ghastly sound and I thought that was it, she is now a pasture ornament. I was going to have her get another steroid shot, but thought that really didn’t improve her quality nor was it really solving the issue. I used the Heave Ho and Health E for one month and saw an improvement just having her around the barn. So I ordered another month without really knowing if she had improved that much. WELL, yesterday was the first time I was able to ride due to our weather and I couldn’t get her to slow down. We didn’t just canter, we were at a full run and she didn’t want to stop. My granddaughter and I rode for 3 1/2 hours and had the best ride in a long time. I don’t expect this all the time due to climate change, but what an improvement. It was amazing. I also put my old 34 year old gelding on the Health E and he is running around like a colt again. The product is expensive for me since I have so many animals, but their health is important. This treatment for Ginger is healthier and cheaper in the long run than the alternatives. I will be ordering the Heiro for my dogs soon. Thank you for a wonderful product as you saved my horse and hopefully I will have a few more years of riding and loving her. She is about 21 years old and I’m 64 so hopefully we’ll both be able to retire at the same time. Again, thank you.
My Old Mare Is Good:
My 28 year old mare, Dusty, has made a huge turn around with Heave Ho. We started her on it at the end of last summer as a last resort of helping her breathing and her breathing improved 100%. In fact it even impressed our Vet when he came and checked on her this Spring.
No Wheezing At All
I wanted to give you an update on Tanky. He is doing incredibly well and I hear NO wheezing at all now. It has been a miracle…thank you so much. Heave Ho and Health-E has truly saved his life (and my happiness). He will be on this protocol from now on.
