Recovery EQ Extra Strength
This product was recommended by a very experienced friend, as the one to go to for results. My 23 year old mare has developed arthritis in one knee, as well as chronic all round laminitis. I have seen improvement, but considering her age and challenges, I do not expect magic or miracles. It is helping to keep her conditioned, but at this stage I still need to "Bute" her to keep her pain under control. Any decrease in the dose, and she is suffering. I have also recently put her into "SoftRide" boots with laminitis gel insoles. Hopefully the combination will give me more quality time with my dear friend. The smartpak " pods" make it so easy for my husband to do the morning dose. I have received my paks in good condition and in a timely manner. The service has been great! I mix the product with a small amount of pre soaked beet pulp and wheat bran to give her some bulk. I find that if it is well stirred, she gobbles this up.

Seems to be working
Recommended by vet for rehab of torn suspensory. Horse is doing better than expected after 6 weeks. Need to soak to get him to eat this.

27 stitches later
My OTB decided, and lord knows how, got caught in our paddock gate. Ripping all 4 legs open. He ended up ripping the knee right off the bone where the entire joint was exposed. 27 stitches later and 50% chance of ever being sound, 7 weeks later and he looks amazing. My vet and every one else is amazed. Read the label and follow the directions to the T. along with your vet instructions you can not go wrong. It is a little pricey, but the results are priceless.

Singing praises again!
I've reviewed Recovery Extra Strength before, but it deserves a revisit. This product was recommended by my vet some years ago when my fave horse developed serious arthritic issues in his hocks. Within two weeks, he was bucking and racing around without any signs of pain or stiffness. Score one! More recently my biggest, craziest horse pulled a suspensory in his hind leg. Along with the treatments assigned by the vet, I tossed in a dose of Recovery daily. He healed in record time and is rehabbing nicely. I just can't say enough about this product. You have to try it to believe it. It stands head and withers above the competition!

Best Natural Anti-Inflammatory
I have used this product on horses over the years & always had positive results. Expensive but one must consider not so much more than Cosequin or Grand Meadows- with better results for tough conditions or rehab. I always return to Recovery. I use this supplement over Bute for managing a condition. All natural plant based, which is really important to me- I do not want to feed my horse shellfish or bovine based products. I have not had issue with palatability, although I do recommend with pelleted feed adding water so it sticks (powder tends to blow around). My vet agrees on results that I have achieved with this supplement. (Purity of ingredients is essential for results) Results seen in a couple weeks- and full effect in 3 months. Can do loading dose & taper to maintenance of 1 scoop. Extra Strength (HA) moreover supportive to the arthritic equines.

Incredibly smart purchase-a must have
I purchased this product for my daughters horse 2 months ago to help him recover quickly from a cow sorting accident where he flipped over the cow. This was a very smart decision on my part. He was recovering very quickly while using Recovery EQ Extra Strength & with light work. My daughter was able to use him fully this last weekend in Gaming - Drill - Steer Daubing(broke the record) and cow sorting. We also believe that this product kept him from getting a virus/pnuemonia that my horse caught a month ago. I highly recommend this product for injurys and immune health. Thank you
