Kathy & Steven - Fantoli
Even after Fantoli was diagnosed with advanced navicular syndrome in both front legs, she found loving new owners in Kathy and Steven. The mare was 18 years old when all treatment options to alleviate her pain had been exhausted.
“Various types of horseshoe, osteopathy, a number of infiltrations, … we even considered a neurectomy to give Fantoli a few more pain-free years. We were giving her up to three bags of Butagran and Danilon a day to provide some comfort, when a friend told me that EquiSound ws looking for horses to test a new treatment method.”
