transfer factors In Equine Veterinary Medicine
   
 transfer factors  - nutrition and recovery Equine Charles W. Brown, DVM: "My colleagues and I have found this product ( transfer factors ) to be very effective in modulating the immune system. transfer factors is a "soup" of immune-modulating factors, which contains a leukocyte-type molecule that can passively transfer immunity from one mammal to another by stimulating cell-mediated immunity and is antigen specific. Richard Bennett, Ph.D., an Infectious Disease Microbiologist & Immunologist from the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, believes this could be the most significant development in animal health care in decades. We have a great number of veterinarians and clients who are experiencing very positive results in a broad area of disorders, including periodontal. "

Steven Slagle, DVM: " transfer factors s and enhanced transfer factors s have turned out to be the most effective and versatile products I have ever used in my 32-year veterinary practice. Here are a few examples:

• A foal with joint ill had been lame for 3 days with an extremely swollen hock and a 104.5 temperature. I recommended that this foal be hospitalized due to the severity of infection, but the client could not afford such care. I then recommended penicillin injections daily and transfer factors s, 3 caps 3 times daily. The foal received only 2 injections of penicillin, but a full course of transfer factors s. 48 hours later, my client reported a remarkably quick recovery with normal temperature and appetite with no apparent lameness.

• Victor, a 10-year-old gelding, with EPM was treated with conventional drug therapy for 5 weeks and yet continued to deteriorate. At week 6, I started him on enhanced transfer factors s (6 caps/day). Within one week, he showed noticeable improvement, and within 30 days, he was able to show. Since his full recovery 4 months ago, Victor has continued to show at his original performance level.

I have used these products as stand-alone and in conjunction with allopathic therapies in the following cases with excellent results: (Note all cancer cases were given enhanced transfer factors s only) CANCER: Canine lipomas, Canine/feline hepatic tumors, Equine squamous cell carcinoma, Equine melanomas; Feline leukemia, oral tumors. VIRAL/BACTERIAL: Upper and lower respiratory infections, Canine/feline dermatoses, Equine/bovine scours, Equine septic arthritis, Feline abscesses. PARASITIC/FUNGAL/AUTOIMMUNE: E.P.M., Feline and equine fungal dermatitis, and Feline autoimmune gingivitis." Steven Slagle, DVM

NOTE: Many veterinarians recommend the human transfer factors s, instead of the Canine and Feline Complete formula for their sick animals. In the below testimonials, the veterinarians, medical doctor and pet owner used the human formulas, transfer factors , to treat their animals. Dr. Slagle (above) used the human formula to treat the leukemia, paralysed cat. The human formula comes in a small capsule and it is easier to give a sick animal who doesn't want to eat. It is easy to shove the capusle into the throat, or empty the content into the pet's food. Some people mix the powder with a little water and squirt it into the animal's throat with an ear syringe.

Molly Metz, DVM, Lexington, Kentucky:

• A 3-yr-old warmblood with history of chronic cough and nasal discharge was unresponsive to antibiotics. Within two weeks of being on transfer factors , both the nasal discharge and cough went away. This colt is being maintained on a maintenance dose of TF Performance and Show.

• A 19-yr-old late gestation mare had stringhalt, ataxia, and moderate ear droop. I began the mare on TF Performance and Show to improve its immune function prior to foaling. After 30 days of being on the TF Performance and Show, this mare had no evidence of stringhalt or ataxia, and only a mild ear droop. This is the first time in her life she was able to pull her ear forward in a normal position. She also is cushionoid and suffered miserably in last summer's heat, being unable to sweat. This spring, when temperatures reached 80 degrees, she was sweating in the field.

• I had a 2-year-old thoroughbred filly with a history of multiple bone pain and suspected neurological condition. This filly was diagnosed with physitis in multiple bones (via bone scan) and as a wobbler on radiographs. I placed her on the animal products to see if she could be improved enough to go into training. The farm has begun breaking her and her movement has improved by approximately 80%. I am waiting to hear if the farm feels she's good enough to go to the track.

• There was a 14-year-old quarter horse with a long history of depression and high eosinophil count. I used TF Performance and Show on this horse on the presumption that he suffered from some kind of allergy or possible cancer. This horse responded tremendously with his attitude. (i.e., much more energy and enthusiasm) but his blood work has remained unchanged.

Lisa Hampton, Trainer, in Montana:

• A 9-yr- old Friesian gelding developed severe dermatitis in January 2001. The gelding went from being a beautiful black horse with full mane and tail to having huge bald spots all over his body. He lost his entire mane and most of his tail. Our vet, Mike Marrinan, visited twice weekly to do Betadine scrubs and he put Prince on antibiotics. Dr. Marrinan took biopsies and sent them to two universities. He spoke with numerous specialists, but none could tell us what was wrong. Our last resort was to put him on steroids. His lesions gradually cleared and his hair started to grow back. By the summer of 2001 we were again riding Prince; however, it became evident that the steroids were negatively affecting him. He was not holding his weight and became spooky and unpredictable.

• In the fall of 2001 Dr. Marrinan decided to gradually take him off steroids. Two weeks after he concluded steroid use, a fresh lesion appeared on his face. His immune system was severely compromised, White blood count was 3000 (normal is 15,000). He developed a chronic eye infection and then really got sick. His fever spiked, he became depressed, and stopped eating and drinking. Dr. Marrinan tried Sulfa drugs and IV's for three days. He put him on Naxel; nothing worked. Prince had given up; we were sure he was dying. I came across an article in The Horse regarding the immune system. It spoke of a product called transfer factors . Upon finding an ad for the product I called Dr. Marrinan and asked him about it. He said, "try it, nothing else is working." I got a two week allotment of TF Animal Stress Pack. We didn't want to commit to more; we had already spent thousands of dollars on Prince. There comes a time when you have to be realistic and say enough is enough. After ten days on the TF Animal Stress Pack, brightness came back into Prince's eyes which we hadn't seen in months. His appetite increased and he was drinking water again. I called my friend and ordered a bucket of TF Performance and Show. I was also sent a free TF Animal Stress Pack because it was felt that Prince needed to continue on it. We put Prince on half the recommended dose of TF Performance and Show and half a dose of TF Animal Stress Pack. After two weeks his coat started getting glossy again and his appetite returned. Two and a half months later he is fully recovered! He is playing in the field again; his mane and tail are growing back; his dermatitis is gone; and his eyes are bright and clear! It is so awesome to see Prince running across the field kicking up his heels with his pasture pals! I want to personally thank Research. I truly believe that transfer factors has saved Prince's life.

• I had a 9-yr-old quarter horse mare named Annie. She started colicking on a Sunday and was suffering from a severe compaction. It became obvious by the second day that we were not dealing with a normal colic. She was showing some neurological signs and her temperature would bounce from 96 to 102. Our vet, Mike Marrinan, came out every day to tube her with mineral oil and give her IVs. Her blood test showed her liver and kidney functions were off, as was her blood count. On day three her gums were bright fuschia, her pulse was 78 and her capillary refill time was 4 seconds; we thought we were going to lose her. Day four she started passing stools. Day five she got severe diarrhea. The diarrhea and depression lasted for five days. She lost about 200 pounds and her coat turned coarse and dull. She had patches of skin that were sloughing and her extremities were swelling, including her face. All of these were signs that she was fighting something toxic. I started her on TF Performance and Show and ordered TF Animal Strss Pack. After four days of being on that she started eating aggressively, jigged to the pasture, and her eyes were bright and clear. She has put most of her weight back on. Annie was 30 days pregnant when she colicked, you can't imagine our joy when we did a 65-day ultrasound and saw her fetus doing back flips. We continue to feed Annie TF Performance and Show throughout her pregnancy. I am convinced that transfer factors is helping her body fight and the probiotics are aiding in the digestion and healing her gut.

• I had a six-week old quarter horse foal. Monday morning I entered the stall and the foal was lying down looking depressed. The mare has a swollen udder; obviously the foal was not eating. The foal's temperature was 102.5. Whenever a foal gets sick it makes you feel so helpless, as they can dehydrate quickly and really go downhill fast. I immediately made a paste with 1/4 scoop of TF Performance and Show, sulfa tabs, and electrolytes. I gave the paste to the foal both morning and night, and milked out the mare to keep her comfortable. On day two, the foal had severe diarrhea and was still not eating, and was still depressed. I continued giving the TF Performance and Show and antibiotics. Day four I had to chase the little guy down to paste him. His temperature was 99 and he was nursing again; he had no diarrhea. On day five you would have never known the foal had been sick. He was running and playing and, remarkably, had lost no weight. I continued to paste him for seven days. I have never had a foal recover this quickly from fever and diarrhea... and no vet bills.
