Description

Do you have an older horse or pony that is starting to struggle with mobility?

White Willow Bark powder may be just what you need! This magic herb has been getting amazing feedback from customers and hoof trimmers alike.

White Willow Bark powder helps support joints and the musculoskeletal system in horses and ponies with painful issues. It contains salicylic acid, which helps reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Due to their chemical similarity, one could assume that White Willow Bark’s efficacy is the same as that of aspirin. Unlike aspirin, white willow bark has no blood-thinning effects and is not detrimental to the stomach lining. It can therefore also be given to horses and dogs. So if your horse is starting to show signs of arthritis, this could be a great natural remedy.

Here are some of the benefits our customers have reported:

  • Reduces inflammation and relieves pain.
  • Supports joints and the musculoskeletal system.
  • Helps with mobility problems, especially in older horses.
  • Assist with shoeing and hoof trimming by making the horse more comfortable during the process.

This is safe for long-term use.

According to FEI regulations, White Willow bark should be discontinued well in advance before a competition.

Anna McKee shares her review below:

About 9 months ago my retired horse Tom, a 20 year old Warmblood TB started to really struggle to keep his feet up while being trimmed. Tom had become increasingly stiff but had always been OK to trim. He could no longer get his legs forward to keep his hoof on the hoof stand. He became reluctant to even lift his foot off the ground. My trimmer had to get very creative to get the job done which became increasingly difficult for her and Tom. I tried giving him a high dose of Bute before trimming but it made no difference. Walking him for 15 minutes before his trim helped a little bit but not enough to show any real improvement.

In early February I was given a sample of Power Star Nutrition White Willow. 3 days before his trim I started giving it to Tom, gradually increasing the dose to the maximum the night before and the morning of trimming. The improvement was dramatic. Tom was able to put his foot up on the stand and keep it there. His trim was straightforward and done with ease. My Trimmers were thrilled and relieved. I decided to wait for 2 more trims to be done just to be sure that it was the White Willow that was making the difference. The next trim went really well.

At the time of his third trim I was really busy caring for some feral kittens and as I was so distracted I forgot to start the White Willow 3 days before the trim. For that trim Tom only got the high dose, the night before and the morning of the trim and once again it worked its magic and he was comfortable being trimmed.

This has made such a difference and I am so happy that Tom is comfortable and my trimmer is safe doing her job.
I would recommend this product very highly to anyone whose horse is struggling with joint issues or pain.

White Willow Bark Powder has really helped William. He is now 22 years old and has a history of laminitis, especially with the prior owners. He has struggled during the summer months on the hard and uneven ground due to his feet having coffin bone rotation. He would often have short courses of Bute to ease the pain and during summer had to live on the lawn that was smooth and cushioned with Kikuyu grass. I felt so terrible watching the poor little guy, from my bedroom window moving so painfully.

Trimming his feet was stressful and he had to have Bute the day before. He has been receiving all the other Power Star Nutrition supplements daily, restricted grass, and hay daily.

On October 21, William started on the daily maintenance dose of White Willow Bark.  He is so happy now; trimming is easy and he even gallops around the paddock when his mate chases him. During the summer of 21/22, no Bute was needed to assist with movement. Since moving to our property in Wellsford in March 2022, he’s been in the paddock full time and a very happy pony.

    Have used this product on a number of different horses and have noticed much happier horse and movement. Its nice to see the change in the horses, not just in movement but in temperament as the product has been helped them cope with various stages of life they have required that bit extra help for pain.
