Purchase: I purchase Evitex from Donna White at whitehavenfarm.com. It comes in a quart or gallon and I buy the gallon for $135.00. I saw an advertisement about Evitex in The Horse magazine and immediately called to learn more. My 32 year old Connemara pony shows all the signs of Cushings though I've never tested her. I am a big believer in alternative and homeopathic medicine.
Likes: Evitex supports healthy pituitary gland function and hormone levels. After starting her on this at age 31 she started shedding her winter hair coat and general overall feeling better. She had started shedding later and later each year until I realized that something wasn't quite right. I'm not exactly sure how or why it works but it does. I also have an 8 year old mare that has such strong heat cycles that she never seemed to go out of season. She was quite nervous and anxious all the time. I consulted Donna about her and she suggested I put her on the Evitex as well. I put her on a loading dose for a month and what a HUGE improvement in her behavior and attitude. Oh my gosh. I have a sweet sweet pony now instead of a witch! Her previous owner had even considered putting marbles in her but decided against it. I researched the other supplements out there and giving her something to shut down her hormone system was out of the question, nor was giving her a supplement to "sedate" her. I needed her sharp and focused since we event. Evitex was the answer. Now there is no more flirting over the fence at the neighbor's geldings. Before she'd kick my gelding to pieces and now she ignores him. Now she is focused on the work at hand, an a joy to be around. She still comes in season but isn't a witch.
Dislikes: My husband doesn't like the cost, for one horse at 50 ml per day it lasts me 11 weeks. I just tell him it's cheaper then a vet call!
Quality: This is a liquid which is safe to give to Cushing horses/ponies and developed for them in mind. Comes with a refillable measuring bottle so there is no waste or giving to much. Easy to use.
Summary: Bottom line...this is a must item for me. I need to have for my Cushings pony and my pony with the crazy heat cycles on this product. Don't suffer with a moody mare, this is a natural product that won't mess up her cycles should you decide to breed her down the road. There are only a couple of reps in the US selling this, you can't buy at any tack store or catalog as you really need to talk to Donna who can advise you best on the products they offer and would work best for your horse or pony.
