WEST NILES CAN BE CURED!!!!! WITH 1,000 mg of LOSARTIN (high blood pressure meds) 2 x daily until symptoms disappear (24-48nhours) then 1 x a day for 9-10 days
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a horse that I watched go from running frantically calling for her foal one minute to within 10 minutes could not walk a straight line, walked in circles, couldnt see, couldnt swallow, was hyper to the point that She ran into everything she came close to including the fence, then the corral, then the barn stalls after we got her in one. But she could not stand still. She banged her head and muzzle into the walls and doors.She literally turned psycho and couldn't see a thing. My vet was out of town and the fill in was at an emergency colic farm call but said to give her bute to calm her down...he could not get it into his head that she was not just stressed over the foal. her foal was back with her and she was still acting psycho. We separated her from her foal when we put her in a stall because she was acting like she was loosing her mind. She did calm down after the bute kicked in but tried to get her teeth into anything high to keep her head up in the air. She laid down and then got back up, rested her head on top of a bale of hay we put in her manger, we put a fly mask on her to protect her eyes and as much skin as we could. We fastened padding the the stall walls. Her muzzle was swollen and her lower lip was loose and hanging loose.
She was diagnosed with West Niles 23 hours after showing symptoms, by an equine specialist and i was told there is no known treatment.
I immediately Started Searching the internet for any kind of treatment, found DR DAVID MOSKOWITZ on GENOMED's website. He has discovered that LOSARTAN does save lives of people, eagles and horses that have West Nile disease. The main problem is that vets, mine included, are too stubborn to prescribe the medicine, or call Dr Moskowitz as he encourages in his article. Therefore our horses still don't have a chance. I was lucky enough to find 30 pills that were 25 mg each. I called DR MOSKOWITZ and got the dosage and treatment instructions. I tried to give her the 30 pills diluted in water with not much luck. I was lucky if I got 1/4 down her. But apparently that was enough because after spending a couple hours tracking down and picking up the meds I gave her the full 1,000 mg dose and she was able to swallow the applesauce and actually drank a small amount of water :) :)
The next morning at 8 a.m. (15 hours after first full dose) She was eating her hay and drinking water. I gave her alfalfa pellets and she ate them. DR MOSKOWITZ instructed me to reduce her meds to once a day.
The following morning she was strong enough to fight me when I tried to give her her medicine. I opened up her stall and she walked out on her own into the middle and spent several hours eating drinking and enjoying the breeze. I put her in a fresh clean stall for the night.
I will add an update of her progress today.
Below is a list of the symptoms of West Niles. If your horse shows any of these signs please call DR MOSKOWITZ at 1-305-705-9922
There is an active trial going on at this time and even though he cant prescribe the meds for your horse he can help you by answering questions and talking to your vet.

•fever
•weakness of hind limbs
•paralysis of hind limbs
•impaired vision
•ataxia (weakness)
•head pressing
•aimless wandering
•convulsions (seizures)
•inability to swallow
•walking in circles
•hyperexcitability

He has yet to show proof to the medical community. West Nile often can improve with nursing care and time in a number of cases. Dr. moskowitz starting being talked about in 2003-2006, but was unable to provide any proof. Has he gotten anything published recently? Is this your horse or just a random person on the internet?

Be careful of quacks.

And it is "West Nile".

I've treated a number of cases that have survived.  Anti-inflammatories, DMSO, Fluid & nutritional support.  Of course, there's always the idea of PREVENTING it with vaccination.....

He has yet to show proof to the medical community.  Seriously, what does it take to prove something to the community. The trial results I read was enough proof to convince me to try the treatment.  And now My mare is living proof that the treatment works.  ​ My medical community could not provide a treatment plan that was "proven" to cure her either, so whats the difference, other than hundreds or thousands of dollars of intensive care, iv fluids, expensive drugs etc.

West Nile often can improve with nursing care and time in a number of cases.   (And now it can improve with an inexpensive  medicine  ​that can have your horse eating and drinking in less than 24 hours eliminating the need for expensive intensive nursing care, iv fluids, expensive drugs, etc.)

Dr. moskowitz starting being talked about in 2003-2006, but was unable to provide any proof.  (Anyone that reads the article will see proof that it has saved people and horses..and as Ive already stated,  my mare is living proof that it works and it works quickly and inexpensively.

Has he gotten anything published recently?  ​(I honestly dont know the answer to that. We were both too busy discussing how to save my mare and that subject did not come up)

Is this your horse or just a random person on the internet?  (This is my horse and I witnesses every thing that I have stated in my post)

Be careful of quacks. ​(Thank goodness for people dedicated to finding cures for diseases that take the lives of our loved ones, people as well as horses have been saved using this treatment.)

And it is "West Nile".  (Excuse the typo, you might want to correct your own typo.  Dr. Moskowitz started, not starting, talking about)

 

 

 So you have known about this for all of these years. Have you ever tried it for yourself or passed this info on to a friend, or shared it on a horse forum like this? If no then you can surely understand why it hasn't been "proven" yet.  If no one is willing to try it, or tell others about it or pass it on in an internet site then how do you expect anyone to know about it.

I've treated a number of cases that have survived.  (And how long did your horse suffer and what was the dollar cost. I'm just saying all horse owners should give it a try if their horse comes down with west nile.

 Anti-inflammatories, DMSO, Fluid & nutritional support.  ​(Imagine how nice it would have been to be able to give your horse 1 dose of this medicine with some applesauce and have him or her eating and drinking on its own in less than 24 hours)

 Of course, there's always the idea of PREVENTING it with vaccination....​(did that but theres no 100% guaranteed that they wont get it)

 

I just realized that you are a vet. so you have treated other peoples horses, it didn't save you money it made you money. You of all people should be thrilled and eager to contact this doctor. You could become a participant in this trial and help saves lives and have it documented in his trial therefore being a huge part of proving to the "medical community" that this does work.

All I can say is you are living proof of why it is not proven after all of these years.  So sad.

He has an active trial still going on and I am proud to be part of it and hopefully I can spread the word to enough people that will try it, get in the trial and it saves enough lives that the "medical community" will consider his trial as proof and it will be used in hospitals and vet offices around the world.)

Just throwing this out there since its pertinent (despite the fact that I'm a mere money grubbing vet): https://www.ncbi.nlm...n encephalitis

Its not WNV, but VEE and its in mice not horses.  Regardless, in this laboratory controlled, peer reviewed study, losartin resulted in faster death.  Direct quote: "Survival analysis showed that 100% mortality was reached earlier in infected rats treated with losartan (day 14) or PDTC (day 11) than in untreated animals (day 19)"  In lay terms: Mice treated with this drug died 26% sooner than those that had NOT been treated.
