Purchase: I have always liked Gateway Products Su-Per products, so when my gelding came down with EPM and needed vitamin E supplementation, I bought this one for him from KV Vet for $12.49 per 4 pounds (about 1 month supply for him since he needed a high dose).
Likes: Serving size gives 2500 IU of vitamin E, which is quite a bit. I doubled his serving size to give him a lot of vitamin E, in hopes of helping repair nerve damage. It also gives 2.06 mg of selenium, the vitamin E precursor, in each serving. He ate it without complaining. It has a molasses flavor to it. It is really inexpensive, when you see that vitamin E supplements specifically for horses with EPM tend to run in the $50 range per 1 month supply (they usually have double the dose of IU of vitamin E). Although vitamin E is fat soluble, you can feed it at relatively high amounts without adverse effects. Even the selenium, if fed within reason, can be fed at higher levels than is provided, so doubling the dose is no problem.
Dislikes: Nothing. I don't know if it worked or not; my horse still ended up with residual damage due to his poor immune system and it taking 6 months of the most expensive drugs in rotation (double doses of Marquis, Navigator) to "cure" him. He still has neurological damage and is fully retired due to ataxia. Since I don't know what went on inside of him, I don't know if this helped or not. I like to think that it did, although he is in varying states of poor to moderate condition regarding his neurological deficits, depending on the day.
Quality: 2 ounce serving size gives 2500 IU vitamin E and 2.06 mg of selenium. Powder form, although it also comes in a liquid. Palatable for horses. Comes in a dosing bottle (liquid) or in a bucket (powder).
Summary: If nothing else, it made me feel better to feed this to my horse. This is an inexpensive vitamin E supplement that gives a pretty high dose--higher than a lot of other supplements, asiding the ones specifically for horses with EPM.
Usefulness Rating: 2.75 out of 5.
