Magnetic products for horses

I have heard of so many people that absolutely LOVE magnetics for keeping their horses comfy and in top condition and also assist in healing. This particular company is highly recommended
Mag Products
My sister has a horse that mysteriously came up lame 2 months ago. Actually, he's hardly lame. Just slightly off in his front left leg. It looks like he has a flat tire almost. The vet did a lameness exam and x-rayed him. Nothing conclusive other than it's somewhere in the lower leg. We changed up his shoeing situation to give him better angles and combat any chance of navicular (everything looked ok on the x-rays, but we didn't get all angles of his hoof, so if there's something really minor beginning, it could have been missed). If it's not that, then my vet said most likely it's a soft tissue injury. She doesn't have an ultrasound machine...I don't know of any vets that do in my's rather remote. He could be trailered, but as I said, he's not my horse so I'm not in charge, just trying to help out.
SO BACK TO MY QUESTION: Would it be worth the $$ to invest in some wraps and bell boots for his front leg(s) to help encourage healing? I know they aren't going to work miracles, but if they can help promote faster healing, then I would say it's worth it (and they would still be useful once he's sound again and running barrels, to help keep him sound). Thanks!

If you can find a vet with a scanning machine it could be really worth it. My bosses young dressage horse had a similar sort of lameness, it was undetectable on the straight and on the right rein, but slightly off on the left.

They tried a few things, but eventually got the vet out to scan, and it turns out he's damaged his suspensory ligament. He's now on a months box rest, and if it's not any better by the they're looking at 1000 worth of electroshock wave therapy.

Definitely better safe than sorry, if possible.

I have used mag ethics on horses and dogs and humans! They do work but there is no need for expensive boots especially if you do not know where it is lame.
You use to be able to get collars for horses, similar to dog collars but with two magnets that lay on the jugular. You could get two large dog collars and use them joined together.

Foxhunter- please elaborate. Are you suggesting putting the magnetics on the neck for "overall wellbeing" as opposed to the site of the suspected injury?

Yes, I am!
I had two elderly horses that worse them. One I was not sure if it was a help the other it definitely was.
These were just like the dog collars but with two magnets. It went high up the neck with a magnet on either jugular. I searched for them but couldn't find one but two dog collars linked together should work.
