Sorry about the double post but the leg specialist we take our horses to for there injections reccomends giving our horses MSM. Try to find a supplement with the highest percentage of MSM you can.

I have had the best luck using Cetyl M. It gave my mom's mare an extra 8 years! It's amazing. I have not used lubrisurn but heard it works really well also. Never had much luck iwth CF and some of the other brands out there. I too would stay away from the grain...too high in sugar. The more space she as to move he better she will be

I actually took my horse off his joint supplement several months ago and put him on ground stablized flax...Omega Horseshine. I'm really seeing some surprising results. He used to always have some edema in his fetlock area prior to he has none. He also has been acting down right frisky...he has been tearing around his pasture kicking up...something I haven't seen him do in a while.

I've noticed that my horse gets worse around high pressure storms. If you go to is actually an "arthritis meter." It seems to be fairly accurate judging by my horse.

I agree with everybody on the no stalling...that is the worst possible thing you can do for an arthritic horse.

I think what I'm going to do is leave her outside and take her for walks every day as she wont walk much in the pasture (lazy). My trainer said that she had a gelding that was sore all over and she started him on Recovery EQ w/HA and within 5 days he was completely different. Also she knows of different people that do dressage and reining and they use it and it works. Its also not as expensive as some other stuff I've looked at and if it works then that is great.
Thanks for all the advice. I will keep it in mind in case Recovery EQ doesn't work.

I used the Recovery Eq and it did seem to work good...but my horse was never a fan of the taste. I had to hide it with apple sauce. The grape extract seemed to have a powerful smell.

My old buddy Rooster (Pictured here) has had the same problem. The vet has injected his fetlock in the past but this time, he got no relief whatsoever. His x-rays look bad too. So old Rooster is now retired. I have him on 2 gms. of Bute/day and he seems to be fairly comfortable. We also tried Surpass topical ointment. It didn't do much for Rooster, but his arthritis is pretty far advanced.
Have you had your horse's fetlock injected?
