BTW, the supplement I use (and my vet swears by it, he said it alone made lame horses at least pasture sound) is Vet-Flex, and you can only get it through the vet (it's not sold in internet stores like Smartpack etc.). Much cheaper alternative to Smartpack and other supplements out there I have to say (while the ingredients are very similar).
If the shots are that inexpensive, it's not Adequan.
It could be Icon, but it's likely just plain glucosamine, which is not as effective as the PSGAGs.
I pay more for Adequan than Legend per shot. And if you are doing the Adequan, to get the bang for your buck, it should be done in a series of 7 injections, one every 4 days. Otherwise it is not as effective, or plainly, not effective. Posted via Mobile Device
