I used a supplement several years ago and can't remeber the name!!
It was an herbal supplement called something like Curoust. But that isn't pulling anything up. Made by a vet and I think it was a family business.
It may help if we knew what you were using the supplement for/to help with?
They had a big following out of Texas three or four years ago. All the rage, and cured everything instantly. I have not heard anything for quite some time.
Do a search on this site for curost around 2018. Lots of post about it there.
Cur-Ost by Nouvelle Research, edited to add they also have a custom blend site called Second Vet.
And no, they never claimed to cure everything instantly by the way...
Thanks! That's the one.

just almost everything
You might need to take some of it then and cure what seems to ail you and your atttitude most days then tomorrow you'll be not so cinchy.
By the way, have you used any? Or are you just talking about something you have zero experience with?
The Curost is a great product when used as recommended. I rarely get on BHW anymore and received alot of flack for my claims when I posted about my experiences years ago, but it truly was a miracle for my horse. I did not and do not work for the company and received no discounts nor compensation for my sharing. Just was trying to help others the way it had helped my guy.

My one little mare with the kidney stones cannot be given NSAID, and after injuring her DDFT in 2016 it was a life saver for her. Much like any feed or supplement or bit, does it work for all horses? No it doesn't, especially if you don't do your research and use the wrong product for the issue you are having.
And Herbie, you are exactly why I tried the product in the first place and Thank God you shared the info not only for her but I tend to take pictures of my horse every now and then to really look at them and try to notice any changes (the crew is 18,19, and 21 so changes at that age seem to creep up on me) Late last winter I had taken a photo of my 21 year old gelding, he was alway a big, deep bodied horse but a few years back he had started to lose some topline, had to change the type of saddle I rode in which helped a bit but when I looked at his photo all I started seeing was an "old gelding" that looked like he needed to be a kid's horse, he was kind of thin for him and just rough looking. I put him on one of the Cur-ost products in late March and this is him in June when I realized I needed to up his conditioning LOL!!!
I don't care if you don't try the product but educate yourself about it before you share an opinion.

THEY didn't claim it cured everything, but some of their customers did. I am using their Pure Critical because it works on my old gelding's arthritis. The Total is a great all around supplement but it's gotten pretty expensive. I can't afford to feed both so I chose the one most important for my horse.
I found the TLC products to be the best all around supplements for my horses.

Herbie is also why I tried the product. I actually have gone on to use it on 3 different horses for 3 different reasons and was completely impressed by the results for each one. The 'why' behind the products the protocol recommended has helped with my entire program and still refer back to it for a refresher. GREAT product, GREAT support, and ongoing education available. I sell stride animal health products and I have often sent people to Curost/second vet to get them to learn about the root of MANY issues.
Ive always used curost total for all my horses but 360 a month has gotten out of hand. I was using it for allergy /Respiratory issues. Decided to go with CEP daily lung for 120.00/4 month supply and have been super impressed!
I tried the CEP total impact for mine but found it didn't seem to work as well for the entire crew.

I know they don't claim to fix everything, I was being sarcastic. It seemed at the time that everyone else was claiming to cure everything with curost. May have been (or is) a good line. Lots of the value seemed to be the recommendation of more sound nutrition to go along with the supplements sold. I agree with this approch no matter what you supplement with. I have not heard anything about them for some time, and most of the people that call call our office do not mention them any more.

I knew you were being sarcastic, it just seemed rather a low aimed kick for someone who's typically above those types of comments. The original poster asked what the name of the product was, not opnions on it and I may need to take some of the product myself, seems I'm rather irritable too, LOL!!!

You are right. I try not to say much about other companies and what they claim to do. I know Curost marketed a lot for allergies. If I recall, they also recommended a much healthier diet and the elimination of soy in the diet. That change alone will eliminate a lot allergic response. I may be off base here because it was a while ago and our feeding programs accomplish that for most horses without supplimentation so I did not pay a lot of attention. I do recall some good results for several owners that had dealt with years of frustration. The world is full of horses, and they all have their own unique issues. Curost may be the perfect solution when nothing else works. My comments were aimed more at the jumpers-on that we see that go all in whenever a new product comes out. That response may cloud the really good ones. A good friend, Wayne Hodges, told me this many years ago. If the NCHA futurity was won by a horse that ate carrots, there would be nothing but orange manure in the cutting pens for the next year. That was the basis of my snide remark.
