"Pugsley - 01-31-2013
Dear Guardian Mask Company:
I am writing this testimonial to you- many years in the
making. I was one of your first customers, nearly 13
years ago! You might remember me- I had a pony with
chronic ERU. My pony, named Pugsley, had a cyclosporine
implant in his remaining sighted eye in 2001, after many
bouts with ERU, and having gone totally blind in his
right eye. The surgery was a success, but not without
other health complications, but no complications with
his eye. As with any new procedure, there were no real
guarantees that this would work, but I had to try and
save my pony's sight. After the surgery, I heard about
your masks through an ERU website. I was determined to
do anything else that I could to preserve my pony's one
good eye. I had nothing to loose, and tried the 95% mask
for my pugnatious Pugsley! (He can be a rascal!) Well,
after almost 12 years now and counting, and using your
FABULOUS fly masks, my pony HAS NOT HAD and episode of
ERU! knock wood!
glasses, as we call them, have become part of his life,
and personality! He absolutely is not bothered by
wearing his "glasses", and they have provided him with
much protection, and comfort in the hot, and buggy Texas
climate! The eye shades have protected so well, that, to
a person who did not know that Pugs is partially blind,
would not even know it! He loves looking "cool" in his
shades are easy to care for, and pretty much
pony-proof-they hold up well even in the toughest
conditions! ( I wash in cool, soapy water, rinse, and
that these sun shades have kept my Pugsley from
developing any further bouts with ERU, and any number of
eye-related injuries that horses and ponies can get!
out there with a horse or pony suffering from ERU- I
understand what you face, but I CANNOT more highly
recommend these eye shades! They have been a true
waste your hard-earned dollars on any other type of eye
shade- these are worth every single penny! You will not
be sorry that you made the investment- the results speak
If you are
on the fence about these, please try them!
Kathleen M., and of course, Pugsley, the
World's Greatest Pony!
That is a really long time for a horse with ERU to not
have a single flare up, wow! We're thrilled that
Pugsley has been doing so well over the years, and we also
congratulate you for being so dedicated to him.
Send us a picture when you can, we'd love to see him!
Thank you very much for sharing your experience!
