Helpful Tips:

For most horses, Cosequin can be conveniently topdressed. If your horse is not fed sweet feed, you can add a small amount of water or molasses to get the Cosequin to stick to the grains. You can also add molasses to appease a more finicky animal. For some horses, it may be easiest to oral dose. Simply mix Cosequin with a small amount of water or molasses and dose orally with a syringe. 


The initial administration period is 4 to 6 weeks. The dosage can be increased but should not be decreased during this period. If a horse shows little or no response after 30 days, extend the initial dosage for two (2) more weeks. 

Initial Administration: Average Horse 3 level scoops AM and PM 1,200 lbs. or over 4 level scoops AM and PM Overly large horses (warmbloods, draft breeds) may need 4 to 5 scoops AM & PM 

Transitional Period: Please do not lower dosage until horse has begun to respond. After horse has achieved a good response, reduce daily dosage by one (1) level scoop each week. Reducing the horse’s dosage in this manner will help find its individual maintenance level more easily. Always watch the animal’s movement and attitude to ensure that it is still feeling comfortable through each weekly transition. Dosage may be increased at any time if needed. 

Suggested Maintenance Administration: Average Horse 1 level scoop AM and PM 1,200 lbs. or over 2 level scoops AM and PM This container contains (1) non-toxic desiccant to help preserve freshness and insure shelf life of the product.

Each cupful contains 1800 mg 99% Glucosamine HCI, 600 mg 95% chondroitin sulfate, and 130 mg manganese ascorbate. Maintenance dose: 1 scoop in the morning and evening; for horses 1200 lb & up – 2 scoops in the morning and evening. (Initial dose is higher.)

Horse Joints


 
The skeletal system of a horse has three major functions in the body. It protects vital organs; provide framework and supports soft parts of the body. Horses typically have 205 bones, with the pelvic limb containing 19 and the thoracic limb containing 20. Horse bones act as levers; they store minerals and are the site of red blood cell formation. They can be classified into five categories long bones, short bones, flat bones, irregular bones, and sesamoids. The location where these bones come together is the joint. Movement of a horse is dependent on joints of various types.

 
The internal pressure building as a result of swollen tissues brings about pain. This inflammation can occur as a result of:
 
·Repeated trauma.
·Stress to the joint.
·Everyday use.
·Athletic training.
·Incorrect shoeing.
·Excess weight.
 
Symptoms of joint pain include:
 
·Lameness
·Swelling
·Heat (usually felt on the fetlock or joint)\
·Raised foot (not wanting to stand on the joint)

If you notice your horse avoiding standing on a leg, or limping call you veterinarian immediately. When calling, be sure to state when the horse first started showing signs of discomfort and any swelling visible to the eye. The veterinarian will most likely prescribe treatment with anti-inflammatories; however some of these medications have side effects. Be sure to ask your vet to explain the medication and potential risks as well as any supplements that can help.


Those supplements are:
 

It is very important to keep this in consideration especially if your horse is a performance horse. Performance horses, like human athletes, place a high amount of stress on their bones and joints. This is especially true if the horse jumps, gallops, or performs sudden turns or changes of pace, as can be seen in racehorses, show jumpers, eventers, polo ponies, reiners, and western performance horses. A high percentage of performance horses develop arthritis, especially if they are worked intensely when young or are worked on poor footing. One of the goals for management for these horses often involves caring for the joints to reduce the progression of arthritis. This usually includes a close monitoring of the animal's schedule to determine how to reduce the amount of joint concussion he experiences and feeding him these very effective supplements.
