Research saying 75mg daily is an effective dose of glucosamine to reduce lameness in 50% of horses. I also don't trust that they don't have an ingredients listed on the package. Which worries me because I like to know what I am feeding other then "performance formula". This was the last time I looked at smartpak stuff which was about a year ago, they might have changed their packaging since then. I know some folks swear by them but its not my cup of tea. If you want to give a joint supplement the one with the best research behind it is cosequin. If are you worried about joint care and supplements I would ask your vet what they think. They know your horse and they know you so they might have some ideas.
SmartPak does more than just joint supplements.
