I agree on the Adequan, totally. However, the success I've seen with oral Aniflex has certainly swayed my take on the subject. Had I not seen it for myself on a variety of horses, not just one, I'd be skeptical. Great improvement on every one of these horses. I'm sold on it

Hmm so is there really any point to me giving her supplements as a preventative, or should I wait until she shows signs of joint issues someday before I bother??

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of maintenance... I would talk to your vet about getting her on a preventative regime, her joints have likely already started having pre-arthritic changes anyways. There is no point in oral supplements regardless of when you feed them, really. Msm will help with some structures, but does not directly maintain the joints and anything else is not absorbed.

Good luck!

My QH gelding who is 22, started getting very stiff; especially in the winter. He would lay down and then struggle to get up, and then was very stiff legged. I started giving him straight msm, and now he runs around the pasture. I started giving it to my 8 almost 9 yr old eventhing thoroughbred too just to keep him feeling good.....I have seen positive things with it myself.

I've always used MSM with about 99% success in my horses, even really old horses with severe joint problems seemed like young colts and fillys again.

MSM is DMSO plus Oxygen. We know that DMSO is a great delivery drug, and the only thing that will cross the brain barrier helping antibiotics to get in there to work, not to mention other body parts...

That being said, MSM has the same ability being DMSO (2) itself... so mixed with glucosamine/chondroitin doesn't it make sense that the MSM could deliver the cell structure of oral glucosamine/chondroitin in to and through the bloodstream to the tissue it's intended for?
