Both my barrel racer and hunter use Smart TLC from SmartPak. I used it on a whim when cosequin and pure msm didn't work for my hunter. Neither come out stiff or sore and SmartPak has a money back offer as well if you don't like it. Posted via Mobile Device
Aliliz.. how did the glucosamine affect her Cushings?
I am not impressed with the MSM .
Prefer the glucosamine condrotion . But I have mixed opinions on the effectiveness of any of it. I personally have taken these drugs, and not noticed much improvement.
You can try some yourself, go to the local drug store, and pick you a bottle .
Cortaflex liquid with HA +MSM powder. However-each horse is different, and Smartpak as great comparison charts, as well as folks who will help you. They also send samples, since none of them work if the horse doesn't actually eat it.
Stevenson, there's some debate over the effects of glucosamine on horses with metabolic issues, stemming from the "glucose" part of "glucosamine". Some people, including vets, say that glucosamine will cause a rise in the horse's sugar level. As far as I know, nothing has been proven, but I figured why take the risk when there are other options. I started Liz on MSM and just added in the HA this past year. I can tell when she doesn't eat both of them!
