Gizmo is kept in a stall during the night, and I have him on Cosequin (it's a two-week starter size) becuase he's 19. I did this because I don't want him to get stove up in the stall.. can this happen? He does not have any problems with his joints yet, but I wanted to prevent any future problems.

joint supplements

Hey guys. I don't know if I'm too late here but I dunno if you guys have heard about this royal champion joint, coat, vitamin estc. Supplement?

On this link: horse supplement (for some weird reason I can't paste the html link in here but this should work)

It's supposed to be this whole "complete supplement "that you can use for your horses in addition to giving them their regular feeds. I've tried it for about a week now, I havent fully seen the full effects yet but so far its been good.

I've had great luck with Acti-Flex 4000. It has ALL of the recommended ingredients, including HA, Yucca, MSM, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, etc., and the best part.... It's affordable!!! Bigdweb.com has the best price online. And if you buy a gallon, you get a qt free .

With one of my horses, who has a definite hock issue, I have to feed extra MSM, a half-dose of a pure MSM supplement. But, straight MSM is cheap, only about $5-6 a month for the amount that I feed, in addition to the Acti-Flex.

Also, many of the things put into joint supplements (feed through) don't even get digested. That or they are completly digested in the stomach and not absorbed into the blood stream. If you are looking for a joint supplement, go with an IM injection, those are held to a VERY high standard, and you get exactly what they tell you
It all depends on the horse and the product. Many horses show great improvement on feed-through supplements. I take joint supplements for myself and can definitely feel the difference.

"The proof is in the pudding."
