I use Adequan for my dressage horse and it made a huge improvement in his quality of life. He's been on it for quite a while now, he's very happy, his movement is so fluid and full of suspension, he's happy doing things like trail riding he used to despise, basically just changed his life, he's a very happy horse.

Downfall, it is expensive, but you will see results. When you start, I think they get it every four days? and then ease it down slowly to once per month, so it is definitely costly. We also ran into the problem where suppliers ran out over the summer, luckily it came back with just missing a month.

Once a month use of Adequan is not recommended by the manufacturer.

It is best to do the full month of 7 shots, one every 4 days and then repeat a few times a year.

Tildren IV infusions can often cause colic, and I would not personally use Tildren on a healthy horse with no history of bone issues.

We used Tildren on my dad's mare who has navicular as a last chance.

On Xray, it did what it was supposed to.

She still came up lame, and is now retired to pasture.

It depends on what it is being used for, and what the vet recommends. It isn't cheap, and it's a two week daily injection. We paid daily vet fees for our vet to come out, double on weekends and two bank holidays too.
It was just under €1000, with Xrays before and after.

You really, really need to speak to a vet about the individual horses.
