Arthritis . . .

I'm so depressed . . . Last November, my vet told me that my 7 year old (6 at the time) Tennessee Walker had arthritis in his left hock. We got him on two different supplements. After about 5ish months of stall rest, he was 75% better. Then he stopped getting better. I can ride him at a walk and a trot (rack) and at first he was doing ok. Now he's started limping again. He has good days and bad days, but mostly bad days. When I went out today, I wanted to see if he limped at the trot too. He limped at the rack but didn't limp at the trot . . . So now I'm confused . . . Does anyone have any advice/any experience with arthritis? For horses and humans, cause I have it also, which just depresses me even more

Have you tried putting him on Adequan? I believe it actually repairs the damage done by arthritis, someone correct me if I'm wrong! I know it is a little pricey, but once the treatment is done, you can put him on regualr oral joint supplements to keep up the repair.

Ice has the beginnings of arthritis...stiff joints. No limping yet, but it does take him awhile to stretch out and loosen up.
