Which Cosequin to buy?

Well as per vet recommendations I am going to be forking out some $$ and buying my new mare Cosequin. She was somewhat neglected when i got her a month ago and is doing so well lately in just a short amount of time. The vet came out and she suggested for me to start giving her Cosequin. When she walks you can hear her joints creak and crack. The vet also suspects she has ringbone or navicular. She is only 11 years old. Which Cosequin do you think would be best for her? I know they have the normal Cosequin, Cosequin optimized, and ASU and ASU plus but I'm not all up to date on supplements so I'm at a loss.

Also, would this be safe to feed with Mare Magic (raspberry leaves)? She gets about 2 handfuls of grain in the AM and 2 small scoops of Raspberry Leaves. At night she doesn't get anything....would it be okay to put the loading dose of Cosequin and her raspberry leaves in her AM feed or would that be too much?

Thanks in advance!

Cosequin is really expensive from what ive seen. I put my mare on Regenex and absolutely love the stuff. And the price is right too.

I really like Cosequin SP! You should check out smartpak's website...you can compare all the ingredients and prices per dose....I practically lived on it for a month trying to figure out the best supp for my horse. It works great.
