Hagyard Pharmacy Keeps Equine Aftercare Supported
For over 144 years, Hagyard Equine Medical Institute and Hagyard Pharmacy have been valuable resources for the Central Kentucky equine community, providing both veterinary care and cutting-edge research, all while giving back to the community that supports it. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hagyard Pharmacy seeks to continue this tradition of benevolence by offering assistance to some of the most-vulnerable charities in the area: equine aftercare organizations.
New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program is the nation’s oldest and largest racehorse rehoming charity. The organization assists over 500 retired Thoroughbred and Standardbred racehorses each year, with over 200 Thoroughbreds adopted out of its Lexington, KY, facility alone. With a focus on rehabilitating, retraining and rehoming retired racehorses, Hagyard is proud to support New Vocations’ mission in multiple ways.
Today, with the help of fifth-generation Hagyard Equine Medical Institute veterinarian Dr. Luke Fallon, Hagyard Pharmacy donated 13 half-gallons of Reflex HA to New Vocation’s Kentucky facility. This is enough product to keep 13 retired Thoroughbred racehorses comfortable for 60 days. In an effort to assist even more horses, Hagyard Pharmacy has launched the Buy-1, Donate-1 program, which allows anyone who purchases a bottle of Reflex HA to contribute to the health of retired racehorses.
For every bottle of Reflex HA sold from now until May 31st, Hagyard Pharmacy will donate one half-gallon of Reflex HA to a local equine aftercare facility in need.
“We are proud to offer the Buy-1, Donate-1 initiative to help equine aftercare programs such as New Vocations. It is our shared goal to provide these fine equine athletes the best of care and the best of joint supplements as they begin their new careers off the track,” said Dr. Fallon.
"We have seen great results from the Reflex HA product, so this donation is deeply appreciated,” said Anna Ford, New Vocations Thoroughbred Program Director. "Many of our horses have the normal wear and tear that any equine athlete sustains while in regular training for racing or competition. Reflex HA has many benefits for these types of horses, and ultimately provides good all-around joint and health support."
Reflex HA supports healthy joints, maintains lubrication and promotes flexibility with 240 mg patented MHB3® Hyaluronan per ounce.
