FAQs for Serene by Nature cream:
When should I start my mare using the cream?
When a mare’s estrus (season/heat cycle) has ended, begin applying the cream daily for 15 days. Ideally, apply a heaping 1/4 teaspoon twice a day. Can be applied once a day using a heaping 1/2 teaspoon.
What if I don’t know when my mare’s last estrous ended and I want to start on the cream right away?
Start on the cream on any day and discontinue when the mare begins her next estrus.
What should I do if I have a horse show and I want to help my mare be her best?
Knowing where your mare is at in her cycle is crucial and by using the cream, you can help her maintain a regular cycle. If she is due to come into estrus (season/heat) during the show/event dates, you may continue usage rather than taking the recommended 6 days off of the cream. This may ‘stall’ her estrus for a few days. If she does come into estrus while at the show/event, keep her on the cream until after the show. Then discontinue cream for 6 days or until her estrous ends, whichever comes first.
How long until I see results?
Some mares may show attitude improvements within the first week. Most mares show an improved mood within the first 21 day cycle. Mares who are really out of balance may take as long as 3 cycles to see results. Balancing the body naturally means giving it the time it needs to heal itself.
Why would my mare need Serene by Nature cream?
In today’s equine world, there are many man-made pollutants and stresses that can cause imbalances in the natural reproductive cycles of mares. Such imbalances can cause a plethora of negative symptoms in behavior and overall health. Serene by Nature cream may help to restore and maintain your mares’ natural balance.
How is Serene by Nature cream different from herbal feed supplements for moody mares?
Herbal feed supplements may be beneficial in aiding moody mares, but they usually contain herbs that will not pass compliance tests with USEF or FEI. Serene by Nature does not contain any herbs, and is the safe and sensible choice for competing horses.
Can I use this cream during my mare’s off season when she is not having regular cycles?
Most mares are more even tempered in their ‘off months’ (Winter months) and may not need the cream. If a mare does become moody when not on the cream, she may well benefit from resuming usage. Using a smaller dosage of cream such as only a 1/4 teaspoon per day may be sufficient during the winter months. Use the minimum amount needed daily to maintain your mare’s moods. Use for 15 days and take 6 days off, repeat.
Can pregnant mares be on the cream?
Yes. The active ingredient in Serene by Nature cream is bio-identical to the progesterone that not only occurs naturally during a pregnancy, but is actually essential to a viable pregnancy.
Might geldings and stallions also benefit from this cream?
Yes. The application amount for non-cycling horses is approximately 1/4 teaspoon once a day, for 25 days out of each month.
Why a topical cream for a horse?
Natural progesterone is not meant to go through the digestive tract and in fact would lose 90% efficacy before even being utilized by the body. Topical application provides a delivery system where the body can have complete absorption at the cellular level within minutes.
Why not just put my mare on Regumate or Medroxy?
Regumate and Medroxy are synthetic drugs that require a prescription and are not bio-identical aka: not naturally existing in horses. The long-term side effects for horses given this drug are unknown. There are known dangerous side effects to humans who come in contact with Regumate including possible miscarriage for pregnant women.
What if my mare is currently on Regumate or Medroxy and I want to switch her to your natural cream?
To discontinue Regumate or Medroxy, follow all veterinary and drug company instructions. After last dosage of Regumate or Medroxy, your mare is likely to have an estrous cycle. Start the cream after the last day of her estrus. If she does not have an estrous cycle, then start the cream any day and discontinue when her next estrous begins.
