Mine was diagnosed earlier this year. :( She had 3 IV shots (knock on wood that helped, I started riding her again). Now on supplements (which is about same as Smartpack offers yet cost me about $30-40/month, and my vet swears by it, unfortunately don't recall the name since I'm not home), and I put Back on Track hock boots on her for several hours/day (2-3 weeks on, week off).
Just want to add, IV shots are not cheap (I believe it was $100/one for me), however, say, joint injections are even more costly. I did NOT try adequan - waiting on how long IV shots will last, then we may give it a try.
