Just google them, or give your vet a call. I'm not sure about the Pentosan. I have never used it, but I know ppl who have. A lot of the girls I barrel race with have used it.

The Adequan... there is a loading dose, and then monthly or something I think. I don't quite remember.

I would give 2 ounces of apple cider vinegar twice a day and Lampley's Mineral & Protein Mix. You can check out their website Frank Lampley or give them a call 1-800-327-0727.

This one? Mineral & Protein Mix It's just magnesium... This is the one that website recommends as a general purpose vit/min supplement: Lampley's A-Z for Horses on Grass Hay.

Adequan DOES NOT recommend monthly use of their product. It's stated right on the front page of the website.
Adequan is administered in 7 doses, one every 4 days. Then the horse can go injection free for as long as a year, and then you do another round. My horse gets one round pre competition season (march), one round during (may/june) and one round before winter training starts (around mid-december).

Pentosan has a similar injection routine. One injection a week for 4 doses. Then you can apparently do a single booster shot, but I am skeptical.

Your best resource here is your vet. I know my vet won't recommend oral supplements because they plain don't work. As well he doesn't give lots of Legend for preventative. I went from 12 shots of Legend a year to one or two when I switched to him, and switched our generic glucosamine IM to Adequan and started on the "program" or 7 injections per cycle. My horse still x-rays totally clean after 5 years of solid work, and national/international level competition. I attribute that entirely to the program that my vet has my horse on.
Good luck!

Anabel, did your horse have a problem that the injections cleared up or do you do this as prevention?
