    My 25yo QH with arthritis in one hock is on a few things- he gets Pentosan shots every 3 weeks or so, Flex Force supplement (glucosamine, MSM, and HA), and with how advanced it is, in order to be sound he also gets Previcox. The supplement with all three things has made a huge difference for him. The shots helped a ton, and joint injections will help as well as long as there is not too much bone spavin that would prevent an easy and useful injection (like with my guy). Good luck in finding what works best!

    The chiropractor I use (Kit Heidt with Animal Krackers out of Arizona) made a world of difference for my boy. Because of his off walk with his arthritis, he threw his rib out. One treatment and he was 1000% better. I highly recommend him, he travels all over the country. He does something slights different than regularly chiropractic work, he almost does deep tissue work to loosen everything up rather than just adjusting bones.

    I also use magnetic hock wraps and love them. You want to start off slow, and you don't want to leave them on more than a few hours. The longest I've left them on is 3 hrs. What I usually do is put them on as soon as I grab him for grooming and tacking up, that way they're on for like 30 mins before riding and it helps to warm up his joist and loosen him up

    Definitely have her seen by a Chiro. My horses all get worked on by them and they have done wonders. I personally use a Chiro to keep my headaches away. Instead of taking Tylenol or Acetemeniphen everyday...One adjustment once a month and I'm good. If not, I get debilitating migraines daily.

    Its amazing what they can do.

    My girls arthritis is due to an injury. She drug her leg and limped horribly for 5 months. The effect of this is caused her hip to be noticiably lower, by inches. A few adjustments later and she was 100%
