    ^^ Adequan is your best bet if he has serious issues. You can give it yourself IM if you get a vet perscription. You might be able to get it online cheeper then directly from the vet. My mare has navicular, but is pretty comfy right now, it she starts getting worse I'm going strait to adequan. It works on everything in the body that needs it, where a joint injection just gets absorbed in that one joint.

    I use SmartPak's SmartFlex Senior for my guy and his legs no longer swell and the joint popping stopped and he seems much more comfortable overall. His problems aren't severe, and maybe in your situation the Adequan would work better, but it's just another option to try. It's also a little cheaper...it costs $35/mo but I go to retailmenot.com and use the $5 off coupon and the free shipping coupon so it really only costs me $22/mo and it's well worth it. Good luck!

    Thanks guys! Once I can have the vet take a look, I'll definitely look into adequan if its something that he would benefit from (if arthritis is actually what he has) but until then I think I'll stick with my current supplement--30 bucks for an 80 day supply is not bad at all, in my opinion!

    Check out the book "Natural Path for Horses" if you are interested in giving homeopathic medicine a try.

    I use this stuff called Zeo Complete. It helped my old boy with Ring Bone so much. He could gallop out in the field with no signs of pain, after a few months of being on this stuff (mind that when I got him he could barely walk). I also keep Bear on it (though I took him off while he is on his 2 month break, which is almost over). Bear has a stocking up problem called lymphatic drainage. If he isnt able to move around enough, then he will stock up. If nothing is done about it, then he will go lame from it. Once I have to move he will be boarded, and will hopefully have a few hours of turn out per day, but he will be on Zeo Complete for sure!

    Best stuff I have ever used! =]
