Doing Good Strengthens Animal and Human Bonds

FullBucket Equine Health is making the art of “doing good” in the animal world a mantra that is crossing borders and strengthening the bond the often exists between owners with their dogs and horses.

FullBucket features a line of products for horses and dogs that are proven to relieve the symptoms of gut distress often experienced after surgery, significant dietary changes and other stress factors, such as travel or environmental change. Products such as the FullBucket Foal KickStart and Equine Probiotic Granules are leading the list of preferred products by veterinarians with other products like Equine Medical Muscle gaining recognition for horses who tie up during or after exercise. Products for dogs feature the highly effective Canine Puppy Probiotic that includes egg immunoglobulins derived from hens vaccinated against parvovirus and Canine Probiotic Paste, especially effective for dogs under stress.

Developed by Rob Franklin, DVM, DACVIM, and Keith Latson, DVM, DACVS, FullBucket has gained a foothold in the veterinary medical field with products for foals and adult horses that are highly recommended. In addition, the veterinarians, along with partner Rob Hendrickson, have worked to ensure that the product is being used to improve the lives of horses in Mexico and Central America.

“Over the past year, we have been fortunate to see FullBucket products being used and frequently recommended by some of the leading veterinary practices in the world,” said Hendrickson, “but another important aspect of our business strategy is to ensure that the same level of care is available to areas of the world where working horses and donkeys are key to economic development.”

It is estimated that there are 100 million working equids in the developing world. A working equid is defined as a horse, mule or donkey that is used primarily for family income, agriculture and/or transportation.

The partners have been working with The Equitarian Initiative, a veterinary-led mission group, that first began with a treatment workshop in Veracruz, Mexico, in October 2010, and has since grown to serve needs in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti, Nicaragua, Peru, Costa Rica, Honduras, Morocco, on American Indian reservations and in Mexico.

For every FullBucket product purchased, a necessary supplement is provided at no cost to animal health care providers enlisted with the Equine Initiative in underdeveloped countries for animals in need.

“Our next step is to work with veterinarians in those countries and provide them support to build their practices and bring a higher level of care to those whose very survival depends on the health of these animals,” said Hendrickson.
