Along with other treatments as recommended by your veterinarian, horses can experience improved joint health through appropriate supplementation whether they are old or young, in heavy training or used recreationally, or have a joint injury/disease or just normal wear and tear. The main ingredients in joint supplements—glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid—help build, repair and protect joint tissue and fluid. Let’s discuss each of these ingredients.
