Hi Laura,

Not Dr. Kellon here but the reason to be cautious with Vit C is that it assists with iron absorption. With EMS/IR horses - who tend to be esp. prone to iron overload - this can be problematic when the diet hasn't been tightly mineral balanced and when large amounts of vit C are used.

In Pabatsa's case, you have a mineral balanced diet and the amount of Vit C in the Lung EQ is appropriate for the condition it is being used for so it isn't a problem.
