Nouvelle Veterinary, Inc.’s new Cur-OST® PURE EQ is a proprietary blend of potent levels of Curcumin 95%, Boswellia 65%, Vitamin C and CoEnzyme Q10 to tackle critical pain and inflammation quickly. The new PURE EQ is focused on severe pain and inflammation associated with a variety of conditions and has been shown to be very effective in aiding in the management of acute and chronic laminitis as well as joint problems. Results have been seen in preliminary trials in as little as 5 days in many cases. In most instances, once the patients have responded and shown improvement, they can be switched to our EQ PLUS or EQ Green product for long term support. Inflammation is at the root of many clinical conditions including arthritis, tendon injuries, poor immune health, laminitis, navicular syndrome, COPD and EIPH. If you want to improve recovery, you must control the inflammation. Cur-OST® EQ products are the only line of supplements available that completely address the inflammatory process. Our new Cur-OST® Immune & Repair EQ product is an enhanced immune support formula combining micronized mushroom derived beta-glucans with essential amino acids; L-Glutamine, L-Carnitine and L-Arginine. Various mushroom beta-glucans have been shown in research trials to enhance immune activity by stimulating lymphocyte, natural killer cell and dendritic cell function, aiding in recovery as well as protecting overall health. L-Glutamine is a conditional essential amino acid that has been shown to not only improve overall immune function, but protects against oxidative stress, improves cellular function and intestinal health. L-Carnitine aids in the mobilization and utilization of various fatty acids for improved energy production as well as cellular function. L-Arginine is a precursor to the production of Nitric Oxide, which may improve or enhance blood circulation throughout the body. The Immune & Repair formula has been utilized to support overall immune health, recovery during times of infection and support during times of stress, but has also shown benefits in recovery from various injuries and chronic lameness conditions

William Fox-Pitt Wins Record Sixth Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials; American Boyd Martin Defies the Odds With Neville Bardos
Sunday, September 04 2011 by Editor
Lexington, KY - There are incredible stories and then there is the story of the 2011 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. Not only did William Fox-Pitt ride Parklane Hawk to a record sixth win of his career, but a little American horse named Neville Bardos defied every possible odd to finish seventh in the world’s toughest four-star. Fox-Pitt and the New Zealand Thoroughbred added one time fault in the show jumping to his dressage score in an otherwise flawless effort over the four days of competition. His dressage score of 39.7 was good enough for second place after the first phase but when overnight leader Simone Dietermann fell off Free Easy NRW on the cross country, Fox-Pitt inherited a lead he then defended with style. But the story of the competition continued to be a scrappy little failed racehorse from Australia. Neville Bardos fulfilled Boyd Martin’s dream of competing at Burghley and with his tenacity and bravery put a nightmare of a summer behind his family. A barn fire ripped through Martin’s barn in May, and Neville Bardos was trapped in the fire the longest of those horses that survived
