Joint Supplement--Opinions on Cosequin Optimized

Hi everyone,

I have a 15 YO QH mare. She is stiff in her movement and has intermittent lameness in her right front. Had her examined by a vet but wasn't showing lameness during the exam. Its mild as its just a slight head bob during the trot and she has to have breaks during her trimmings & sometimes while picking her hooves as she will go to her knees if not while bearing more weight on the right front.

I was wanting to try a supplement to see if it may help her and I understand that not all supplements are what they claim. I have heard good about the cosequin and was wondering what your experiences have been with cosequin optimized with MSM. Thanks!

Personally I love MSM - I use MSM for every horse I own. It's the type of supplement that they can have all their life without 'getting used' to it or needing more. It's a fantastic 'cures what ails you' type of supplement. It helps all soft tissue in a horse.
Personally I found no difference using MSM alone versus Cosequin+MSM. But that was my personal experiences. MSM is also very affordable by Animed.
