Mahza presented with both internal and external abscessation. Two other veterinarians had attempted therapy with Trimethoprim-Sulfa and Penicillin with no results.


2/2/2009Mahza was taken to the UC Davis Veterinary Hospital with multiple external abscesses.

2/3/2009—Lab work revealed an elevated WBC with increased neutrophils (77 %) and decreased lymphocytes (16 %). UC Davis diagnosed Mahza with Pigeon Breast. It was confirmed later by a positive titer of 1:5120. The culture was positive for corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis.


2/2/2009The owner requested that Dr. Ramaekers start Mahza on his Equine Immune Formula that day, and they went to UC Davis. Mahza did not receive antibiotics, but her owners continued to give her the Ramaekers Equine Immune Formula on a daily basis.

Follow up:

3/25/2009Mahza showed marked clinical improvements with respect to the external abscesses. Also, she had a much-improved appetite and level of activity. Repeat lab work showed a normal WBC with both the neutrophils (54%) and lymphocytes (40%) returning to normal levels.

5/11/2009Mahza continues to improve overall appearance and health. The external abscess was nearly completely healed.
