Pain relief gel for stiff horse?


My horse has a sore muscle in his shoulder and I haven't been able to get to the equine store so I bought this today for him:

HOMEMARK - Remedy Blue Gel

Its main ingrediants are MSM and Emo oil along with a lot of natural extracts from plants. It doesn't seem like a harsh ointment at all.

Do you think this would be fine to use on my horse?

I've never noticed gel to really help a stiff or sore horse but to answer your question the link to the stuff that you bought appears to be for human use, correct? In that case - with out being a vet or having personally used it - It should be just fine to use on a horse. Human strength is much lighter than what they use for horses.

We use some human stuff here on horses. This is a general rule we follow- If there aren't any ingredients in it that could hurt your horse its alright to use. :)

Thank you very much!! :) I think stiff was probably the wrong word to use,my trainer says its just a sore muscle, but i'll be plopping it on ^^ I tested it on myself as well and it doesn't do anything (well, anything bad!)

I use Troy's Cooling Gel on my old stiff horses and I have definitely noticed a difference. Its certainly not a long term fix, but it gets them through until I can afford to shell out the big bucks for supplements!
