Best glucosamine for horses?
I have no idea. There are so many and they all claim to do different things. Supposedly the only one with product studies backing it up is Cosequin, a wonder-dust powder priced along the lines of other, less legal, street powders. It’s hard to pick among all the products on the market, while also getting one the horse will actually eat. After testing a few different ones, I’ve got this one right here from AniMed Horse Care.
She eats it, it’s easy to load for two weeks on it, and all the ingredients seem right, without unnessecary fillers. (No, I do not receive any kickbacks from the company in any way writing about this.) I think a joint supplement is a must for preventive measures. Oh, and something for the coat, and an overall vitamin and mineral balancer, and some digestive support, and a salt mix… Hahaha, mostly it’s just really fun fiddling with it all!… Next up I’m going to look for some MSM. Of course I’m happy to hear from anyone who’d like to chime in on this.
Here is the low down on the Glucosamine 5000 with live yeast culture.
