So my horse has suffered from a couple hock injuries, 2 that i've been informed about, she doesn't show any signs in motion/riding or she doesnt show and pain when touching her hocks no stiffness ect.. but I thought in knowing this that it would be smart to put her on a joint supplement..and I was curious as to if anyones ever used: Dumor Horse Joint Supplement - 5065178 | Tractor Supply Company
I used the first one with little results on my arthritic horse. I used fluid-flex and I saw improvements! I would also buy corta-flex for him.ive never used the second one you listed but I think it would work.
I have been using the Dumor on my senior citizen for 2 years now and have seen good results. However, I double the amount recommended on the label. I would also do that on most Glucosamine supplements as a study funded by the AAEP showed that an average sized horse needed 10,000mg in order to show and improvement in pain.
I use this Flex-Force, its from the makers of Cortaflex, but I absolutely swear by it. I double up the dosage like Ryle does, even though I don't really think I need to....I just like to be cautious.
My boy is far from a senior, he's only 12, but he was a racehorse for quite a while, and he does have visible improvement with it. The only problem is I haven't had luck finding it in stores or most online places, just ValleyVet and Jeffers.
