We have a 16yr old gelding with a sore fetlock joint.... X-rays show nothing; he's seen the chiro regularly/as needed - can't find anything that is causing the soreness; is trimmed regularly (don't need shoes on this guy, the kids just ride him around home and the odd gymkana); currently not on any joint supplements, pain relievers or otherwise. He's such a great horse with the kids, we'd like to get him sound again, or at least feeling better - he's definately worth it to us.
I don't want to give this guy Bute, and I'm not interested in joint injections at this time.
What is everyone using for joint maintenance? There are so many out there, its hard to know what to use...! Or what works...
Anyone used the oral Recovery? with Hyaluronic Acid?
Any info or insight would be super. Thanks so much
