BioStar with Tigger Montague

BioStar was born in Tigger Montague’s kitchen in Charlottesville, Virginia. the result of her trying to help a horse overcome crippling inflammation of the bursa that had not responded to any sort of treatment options or therapies. Her veterinarian, Dr. Tim Ober, explained the last resort in cases like these: a surgical neurectomy. For a horse who had been competing at the highest level of the sport, this prognosis was a huge blow. To have nowhere else to turn was even worse. In the meantime, Tigger decided that adding some whole food would at least be supportive before more drastic and permanent paths were followed.
