My horse has a knee injury which I have been attempting to heal. But a side problem that I’ve had with the knee injury was two cast sores at the side and back of the knee that developed the first week of August last year. They have been treated since then but never completely went away. No air could get to them to assist in healing and therefore the skin and tissue continued to be tender and would bleed at the slightest bump. Additionally, Cagney would try to itch the areas as soon as I removed the bandaging so until I got it covered back up, we were always in danger of her knocking the top off the sore again. After seven months, each day there would still be some degree of moisture from the wounds and I continued to apply antibiotic ointment to them.
Anyway, started the Rapid Response on Saturday and by Tuesday there was no moisture from the cast sores. By the Thursday the sores were significantly healed and the tissue actually receding and tightening.
I have high hopes for what the Rapid Response is doing to the inside of her knee right now, but I already know that in three days it has apparently solved the exterior knee problem!

I have been using 7 cc’s once a day for a preemie foal and am very pleased with her progress. We’ve used it to heal two torn tendons with both horses back in training and doing well. Have also treated sesamoiditis and that two year old is training beautifully.
…….We are using the product on 15 training horses, one yearling, one premature foal and one 20 year old mare who has been barren for two years and was just bred last week. We’ve used it for repairing tendons, sesamoiditis, and a possible ulcer. We’ve used it to stimulate appetites, on splints and shins and have had positive results everytime we’ve used it. Our vet and trainer just marvel at the results. I am most thankful for the results we’re seeing in the little foal that was a “red bag preemie”.
Subj: Stakes Winner

Friday night, August 11 at 7:00 p.m. at the Quarter Horse Finals at the Sam Houston track in Houston Texas, Easy Winning Jet won his first stakes race. Easy Winning Jet is a two year old that had a slight ankle problem that caused him to slow down at the end of his runs. Two weeks ago he was started on Rapid Response to help with his ankle as well as improve his breezing times. Friday night not only did he win his race but did so with a speed index of 106 and set a new track record. Rapid Response proves time and time again how effective it is in treating, maintaining, and increasing the health of our animal friends.
“I never knew I could love a horse so much. I never dreamed I would end up with such a dear wonderful animal that had such extensive medical problems and lameness issues! Due to a negligent pre-purchase exam, the horse we bought was not 11 years old and sound as we were told. This horse turned out to be over 18, lame in all four legs and had a crushed splint bone which required immediate surgery! After huge vet bills, Bute, Corta-flex and several other attempts to make this horse well, nothing was working. I was wondering if this animal could ever have even one day free of pain. She had a very willing spirit but a seriously painful body. Then I found Rapid Response. I decided since it was all natural, it probably couldn't hurt to try some. I have to say, we have truly experienced a miracle! Our horse is well and can be ridden everyday. She is being used in lessons by a trainer at our barn, she goes on trailrides and does arena work and never shows up lame! She has the shiny coat of a stabled horse but lives in a pasture, she truly feels good, and we are both very happy!”
‘I have healed two of the terminal-type wire cuts.
The first was on my daughter's mare several years ago. The vet could feel into the coffin joint with his gloved hand. She did not tolerate a cast and had to be stalled and to have the wound dressed daily at first.
That first horse and the one that I healed this summer both had one of those WORST KIND of wire cut at the top of the hoof that penetrates the joint capsule. The vet would inject antibiotic solution into the joint and it would shoot out the other side.
My vet told me that he'd seen three wounds like that this summer. The first they opted to euthanize immediately, the second healed with the cast but the horse was still infected and dead lame. My horse was sound and rideable in about four months and is starting again around the barrels. It eliminated proud flesh and contaminated mess.
SO even at the price, I want to have some in my fridge.’
More from Georgia ……
‘One more strange thing.
My son had a horse get a leg injured when he got it between the stall and a waterer about two months ago.
He is in Arizona and I hadn't seen it, but it seemed to be taking a very long time to heal so I sent him a bit of RR last week. He was putting it on with a cotton wrap; and totally skeptical--doing it only to humor me at
This morning he called me at six a.m. As he was changing the dressing, he found was a hard, resistant scab. He used his finger and thumb to pull it off and lo and behold; out came three inches of bone.
Apparently the splint bone had broken in the original injury and the wound couldn't heal until the body worked that bone fragment out of the wound.
One cannot know the process, but it is true that it did resolve after a week of treatment with the STUFF and had not resolved in the previous two months.
I wrote that yesterday. Last night we talked again. The pus and inflammation were noticeably diminished during the day and he is of the mind that the Rapid Response helped to effect that improvement.” Georgia Williams
“I have a Quarter Horse that has stiffness in her right leg, hock area. It has been there for several months. She moved with great difficulty. Now on this product, Rapid Response, she is running the fence line with Callie. This sight brings me GREAT joy. I have a female chow that is sooo old, 13 or 14 years old. She was having great difficulty moving, low energy, and poor appetite. Now she greets me at the gate to my place and she has discovered the JOY of eating ! It is almost like seeing a reversal of the aging process.”
“We use the product for prevention as well as treatment. We used it as directed initially to heal a torn tendon and it does work. We gave the information to our vet and I always tell him when I've used it and for what purpose. Now when I have him check someone he will say to me, "You know how to treat it." He has seen and therefore believes!
For instance, when he told me to give a foal Amikacin twice a day in a little behind that couldn't stand unassisted, I chose not to use the antibiotic and used RR instead. Blood draws showed improvement and normal values and he was mpressed and I felt a lot better knowing I hadn't made her hind end worse with twice a day shots.
RR does not cause harm. Think of it as a nutritional supplement that is utilized by the body wherever the body needs help. We basically have done our own studies on various problems and have used the product for over a year now.”
“Hi Debra. Just wanted to let you know that I had Cobra’s x-rays done today. The vet said the ringbone is arrested, the navicular bone is textbook perfect, and the cannon bone alignment is perfect! The vet was amazed and wanted to know all about it!!! Previously she had told me Cobra would be unrideable for the rest of his life, today she told me to ‘ride him, and ride him hard!’ I guess this proves what we’ve always suspected…..that Rapid Response is indeed a miraculous product! Thank you so very much!”
Janet Jagitsch 3/01
More from Janet …..
“My 24 year old TB Gelding, Cobra, was diagnosed in May of 2000 with bilateral front navicular disease. In increasingly severe pain, in October he was additionally diagnosed with ringbone high and low, and osteoarthritis p3 (coffin bone), as well as bone spurs, all bilateral.
Now that was a death knell for my Cobra. In fact, my vet said he would never be rideable again, suitable only as a pasturemate until euthanasia.
What did I have to lose? As a single mom of two, I struggle to feed my kids as well as my horses. But I figured that Cobra was worth $270+ ; what, besides that amount of money, did I stand to lose? Worse, what if the stuff worked, and I had failed to try this one last-ditch effort to make my horse comfortable in his remaining days?
I began oral and topical administration of Rapid Response on 11/6/2000. I was able to handwalk Cobra for the first time since May on 11/11/2000. There was not a sign of lameness. This was the first time in six months that Cobra had not been in pain.
On 11/19 I ponied him and my leading mare could hardly keep up with him.
On 12/23 I dared ride him for the first time since May. There was no sign of lameness. He wanted to trot and jig and had to be forcibly slowed. Thereafter I had to warm him up in the ring prior to short trail rides for fear --at my ripe old age of 50 --of being bucked off and breaking something myself, which he regularly threatened to do to me!
On April 22nd Cobra was entered in 9 classes at a local show and placed in all 9. Today, 7 days later, he repeated that performance at another show, entering 11 classes and even taking a first in an over-fences class.
How's that for an "unrideable" horse facing euthanasia?
I am so grateful to Rapid Response.”
“My ll yr. old appendix quarter horse was just evaluated two weeks ago for a two month history of knee swelling caused by a fall in a sand arena. He fell directly onto his knee. A local vet x-rayed it one week and no fractures or chips. He was cleared to ride a week later and showed no sign of lameness. However, two weeks later, he turned up lame with swelling and noticeable gait changes. He was x-rayed by another vet and there were no changes from previously. He also showed some foot tenderness in the other extremity. He has required corrective shoeing for poor conformation and is presently barefoot. He was on stall rest and was receiving IV Legend.
After two months with no improvement, I was at wit's end. I heard about Rapid Response and began the topical and internal treatment. After 24 hours, the swelling in his knee was gone! For the first time in months he showed no swelling or pain. A week after beginning treatment, he continues to improve. He has become much more fluid in his movement and his hocks no longer appear stiff. At last, a light at the end of the tunnel! I am so relieved and excited! “
“We have great news. I have a yearling that was diagnosed with bone cysts on the ankle joints in January and was put on Rapid Response and Norfields magnets. As a matter of fact, all of my yearlings are on Rapid Response. Now the vet cannot find the cysts and is totally amazed. God Bless.” Joanne Nor
“I am very pleased with the results of Rapid Response on my 3 yr. old
Thoroughbred. He sustained a condylar fracture of the cannon bone and pastern. He received Rapid Response for 1 month and the healing is super.. My vet is very impressed and I feel this is an excellent product. Mac is now on a 30 day walk regime and I would like to continue the R.R. during this period.
Please ship me another jar. “
The following relates to a horse with a broken foot.
“Yesterday (Sunday) I let mamma mare out in the pasture, which I never do. She is in her stall so that she won't run and hurt her foot when I am trying so hard to get her healed. She hasn't been limping and she has even been jogging a bit in her stall. I have a really old barn and homemade stalls that are really about two and a half times the size of a regular stall. So based on what I have seen lately I thought she would love to run around
outside because it was a beautiful spring day. When I let her out she jogged across the pasture to go see the neighbors cow and I might add it is quite a ways to go, we have a 22 acre field. She did not limp at all, as soon as she was done saying "hi" to the cows I called her to come back to me. I tell you that the other two healthy horses did not run as fast as her, and not one sight of a limp or pain or anything. Her foot has not bothered her at all since then and I am totally amazed. I will keep you posted it seems so fast for such a recovery, I am in complete shock and my horse seemed so happy to run! The vet is coming out to xray again this week. I will keep you posted on the outcome. “
Talk to you soon , Danielle
My horse, Orphy, began having some tendon/leg problems. So anyway, after a few months of vet out, no better, wrapping, liniments etc we stumbled upon this miracle drug (well not really a drug as it is all natural) that is supposed to help rebuild tendons etc. I call it a 'miracle' drug because believe me when I first read about it and started to research it I thought, yeah right... too good to be true.
Well I had come to the end of my tether with this horse ever really being
sound again. So I thought I would invest my last bit of money into this product, and lo and behold 60 days later -- no irregularities or swelling and he is sound again.
I wanted to share this experience with anyone who is having tendon problems and are like me that don't know what else to do, try it, it works! (No this is not an advertisment, just sharing my excitement!! ) I have my beloved horse back and it was the R&R that fixed him.”
Just a quick note..re Walter..well he is magnificent.
He is moving around like a dynamo. I was leaving the paddock the other day and heard a soft, regular sound..it was Walter cantering up to me, finishing with a beautiful
straight extended trot..he wanted to come out with me!
It brought tears to my eyes to see him moving so well.
Yes, I do know he's not supposed to do this, but he sure looked sensational.
X-rays soon..then we'll see about working him.
Talk soon, Dani”
The above refers to an 8 yr. old warmblood diagnosed with lower ringbone. Treatment commenced on Feb. 5. The above was sent April 30.
Good news! I had the vet out tonight to pull the wolf teeth on my 2 yr old (Sonny's replacement) that I just put into training. Dr. Lee brought out the x-rays from Feb and August and showed me exactly what to look for. It clearly showed the break in Feb that was wide, and what appears to be directly above it a round cyst like black hole. That is why he agreed with the original specialist (Dr. Hansen) that it was a navicular cyst that caused the bone to weaken and eventually break. On the Aug. x-rays, the cyst was completely gone...he admitted it was filled in with bone, not cartiledge. I specifically asked him this. It was exactly the same color as the bone, and I could honestly no longer see the cyst like ball above the fracture line. The fracture line appeared to be much smaller, almost a needle width size, compared to probably a 1/4" gap in Feb. He also told me to haul him to Julia's arena (my son jumps ponies for this lady) and actually start riding him for 15 min's for a couple weeks, and eventually trot him a couple times on the long sides of her arena. I told him Sonny is close to sound at a walk, and really good at a trot in a straight line, but not in a round pen. He told me not to ride him in circles and he would be fine. He did suggest giving him Glucosamine injections every 2 weeks, because he feels it would only help him more, even though your product has it in it. He said it was relatively inexpensive and Sonny would benefit from it. Also, only on one edge, did the bone look a little rough (arthritis). Every other joint line was perfectly smooth, which he was amazed, and said it had to be the RR.
I'm so impressed. My only confusion is, do I follow his advise and start to ride him now? or do I wait another 6 months (it is winter here, and muddy!) and see if that fracture line fills in completely? I'm sure I know what you will suggest! Anyway, I will get the x-rays and send them to you so you can see them with your own eyes.
When I first contacted you the end of 2001, my horse had just been diagnosed with high ringbone in one foot. The vet called it "trauma ringbone" and felt he was through with barrel racing.
Although we have not completed the treatment, at this point in time Jack is still doing awesome and staying completely sound. He is really enjoying riding in the snow. He is back in barrel training and won his first show. When I started RR I was just hoping for a result that would help Jack retire comfortable and with minimal pain. I wasn't planning on racing him again though that thought never left my mind.
Meanwhile, I am going to keep telling everyone I know about RR and what it has done for my horse. Thank you so very much for being so kind to me and patient.
I am also so truly grateful to have Jack back and in good health. It is so frustrating and terrifying knowing the horse that has just given you the best thirteen years of your life is in a lot of pain and there is not magical wand to make it go away. Then someone comes along and makes it possible to help that horse. You and Amerdon are amazing and I am glad you all care.
I cannot put into words the gratitude I feel to you and to Amerdon for all of this. For giving me my horse back, and for working wit me through all of this. You will have a customer for life, I can guarantee you that much. Did I ever tell you how Jack used to snap, pop, and crack in every joint when he moved, now he doesn't? I think I might have mentioned somewhere, but I feel it is important to mention it again.

I wanted to tell you that today we took Cobra on a 2 hour trail ride. He was wonderful! He is absolutely sound. He may be a bit tired, and even stiff,
tomorrow, as he does have some arthritis--he IS 27 year old. But he behaved himself and seemed to thoroughly enjoy himself. We rode high in the mountains, up and over them to the next valley, and back, always just at a walk--tho he wanted to trot. I was delighted with his obvious health and nice behavior---he can be a real jerk if he wants to be.
Anyway, I'd say that we can definitely say that he has come through two bouts of navicular disease successfully, And I think if I'd kept him on the
maintenance dosage in the first place, he wouldn't have relapsed into the second bout of navicular. There is no sign of any previous ringbone, either, of course, though there never was, once it was cured by Rapid Response.
Just wanted to let you know my good news.
This is news regarding a horse that 3 years ago was diagnosed with both upper and lower ringbone in both feet, bone spurs and navicular. After three months of treatment, he was pronounced sound. However, several months ago, the navicular popped up again. Janet believes the reason is due to not having him on maintenance RR.
Hi Debra, I have such exciting news to share. We just finished Stock Show yesterday. A week ago Sat. we took Lady back in to see Doc Gary. He ultra sounded Lady's tendons and was so excited to tell us she was 100%!!! We had been conditioning her for 3 weeks prior but had been told she could not do any Stock Show performances. During those three weeks we used RR orally and externally sweat wrapped. Gary was so confident of Lady's healthy tendons he told us to put her to work and take her to Stock Show. The Mustang and Lady alternated from that Sat. night to yesterday. Lady was wonderful and was so excited to be able to perform again. Her speed, agility and energy were all there for Naomi. Naomi's biggest desire was to graduated out of Westernaires on the horse that had taken her so far and that is just what she did. Sat. night's performance was fabulous and her last show ever in Westernaires on Sunday was atop Lady. Their exit from the arena was jubilant and at a full gallop! I do believe that the RR was key to Lady's recovery as well as alot of TLC and prayer.
I am very excited about the maintenance formula. Our 21 year old KC just got diagnosed with coffin bone arthritis. What do you recommend for that? I am all out of Total Effort so I need to get an order in to you. Talk to you soon. Joyce
P.S. the Mustang did very well. He even got his picture in the Denver Post Friday, Jan. 24th titled Electric Horseman. It helped so much that he didn't have to do everything for the 11 days since Lady was doing so well.

You and Sharone are the greatest and you sure demonstrate that you care for these animals that need this great product. Hopefully DJ can eventually reach maintenance level, but he will definitely stay on it for the rest of his life! Kitty Ng, Honolulu May 03
My horse is doing very well and improves by the day.
I have started taking RR as well as one of my friends and we both are getting some fantastic results. He has taken for only 2 days now and called me today to tell me he can't believe it. He plays basketball and hasnt' been able to play because his knees have been painful. He went and played ball and had no pain and was limber. He was quite amazed.
I saw Barbara today and her horse is also doing exceptionally well. She is thrilled.

I have used RR successfully on my 26 yr old horse. Now my father, who
suffers from arthritisis from old sports injuries would like to have what my
horse is having! My questions are: have you gotten similar results with
the Human RR? What form does it come in? (Although my dad says he'll plug
his nose and swallow anything to move like my old horse is!) Thank you.
My RR Experience:
I know you probably get tons of emails like these, but I just have to tell
you how wonderful your product has worked for us. My first horse, a now 26
yr old, began having shoulder arthritis at age 19. I immediately put her on
the best Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplement out there. She had no problems
until this fall. Her arthritis rapidly deteriorated over a few months to
the point where she was barely moving, and had a hard time standing up. We
were terrified that soon she would not be able to get up from a laying down
position. I wasn't willing to give up and knew there had to be a better
product out there. That day my Michael Plumb's Horse Journal came in the
mail. In an article it reviewed your product as the best. I put in my
order right away. By the beginning of her 3rd week on RR, there was marked
improvement. Now, after four weeks on the product, my mare as galloping,
spinning, and bucking as if she was 10 yrs old! It brought tears to my
eyes. My mother, who was very skeptical at first, is now a firm believer in
RR. I cannot tell you how happy I am. You put life back into an
irreplaceable mare. I am recommending this product to everyone.
Thank you again,
I think Rapid Response is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. My Arabian dressage horse managed to get his foot caught in wire about 18 months ago. The cut almost went into the joint, it is the lower outside part of his pastern. It took 6 months to heal up and then I knew it still wasn't quite comfortable because he would no longer jump and he used to love it. I had had him x-rayed last spring, and you could see the arthritis and extra growth around the injury. About 8 weeks ago he went lame on that foot and in the process of trying to figure out what, if anything I could do, I ran across an article in the Horse Journal about Rapid Response. So I bought the T formula and hoped I wasn't buying "snake oil". I started Raz on it the 29th of October. ( 7 weeks ago) In four days he was moving well and after a week I started riding him again. The whole injury area has shrunk in size (it had gotten large and had hard lumps) and has become soft again. My farrier was amazed at what has happened and Raz is moving like he is oiled. My friend Debbie bought the T formula for her mare with ringbone. She has had ringbone for two years and was so lame she was just stumping along with her front feet. Debbie has been in contact with Debbie Kahn about the problem. The mare has been on Rapid Response for 5 weeks and is moving freely with only a slight limp and the enlargement is reducing in size. Again the farrier (same one) was amazed, you don't cure ringbone. I will have Raz x-rayed again in the spring when I have his teeth done and the mare will be x-rayed again also. In the meantime, all the information is being passed on to our vet, who will be most interested. I expect you will get an order from my dressage instructor also, one of her horses has a problem hock and she is probably going to put both her horses on a maintenance dose. I am also going to be using Equiflex shoes for the next shoeing of Raz.
I bought the human formula for my husband, he plays the piano and has arthritis in his hands, his fingers have improved immensley and he no longer takes aspirin in the mornings. I had a fall and cracked a bone and took Raz's formula for a week. My ankle was very sore and stiff, have you ever taken this stuff? About 1/2 hour after I took it I felt this wonderful warmth going to all the hurt places, it was so soothing, no wonder Raz felt so good. I took the human formula for another week and I was all well again. I can't thank you enough for developing this wonderful treatment. It is one of those things that sound too good to be true but unlike a lot of things it is true. Have a wonderful Christmas and a super New Year and I hope you sleep very well knowing how many horses and people and other animals you are helping.
