7/22/2009 2:14:40 AM

I I have used both with success but would appreciate data from scientific studies.

7/22/2009 1:31:30 AM

Horse owners should be able to have options other than western medicine.

7/21/2009 11:05:42 PM

Reliable information is always appreciated

7/21/2009 10:24:19 PM

Homeopathic remedies worked 100 years ago, I have the old books to look problems up in when needed.

7/21/2009 10:03:32 PM

I have used both options with some success; more serious cases show no real results

7/21/2009 9:37:14 PM

Functional electrical stimulation and myo-fascial release and barefoot hoof care

7/21/2009 9:19:10 PM

I use many modalities to keep my horse healthy (myself, too)

7/21/2009 9:14:50 PM

healing/health should be looked at holistically

7/21/2009 8:59:41 PM

7/21/2009 8:43:58 PM

I already use Reiki, Shamanic healing and aromatherapy on my horses.

I have found therapeutic methods to be an excellent complement with traditional medicine in my horse

7/21/2009 4:32:06 PM

No. Maybe some stretches & basic massage I can do myself. Prevention before treatment.

7/21/2009 3:59:55 PM

I don't think you can ignore the positive results that have been recorded in veterinary practice.

7/21/2009 3:30:54 PM

Chiropractor got my back comfortable.If my horse needs it, she'll get it.

7/21/2009 3:28:43 PM

Chiro helped my pony so much! from unridable to perfect!

7/21/2009 3:26:18 PM

My horse fell on the ice a few years back and her hip bothers her occasionally.

7/21/2009 3:19:40 PM
