    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosequin I've been using it for about two months. It appears to be working well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Purchased for my 21yr old OTTB. There’s a noticeable improvement!! This is the only joint supplement that backs its claims with actual data.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Career saver! I have used this product for 3 months now and wow! my Breakaway Horse Short Go is moving better then ever! and completely off pain medication. Short Go diagnosed with navicular and fusing hock. He was treated for both issues, but unfortunately he was still painful in his hocks. Since being on Cosequin ASU “Short Go” is now 100% sound. So happy to be competing off him again! Thanks so Cosequin ASU

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!! This has helped my gelding so much with the clicking in his joints. The palatable formula is good too because he is very picky. High recommend!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Haven't noticed a difference I have had my guy on a few joint supplements, and smartpak had a sale on cosequin and I decided to try it for 2 months to see if it was worth the price and the hype. I haven't noticed any difference over any other products.
    Date published: 2017-10-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for my older mare! With arthritis starting I needed something to keep my older mare more comfortable and this has not disappointed. No more clicking when she walks & she eats it right up. Loves to go on trail rides & participate in 4 H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have been using this product for quite some time now. My American Warmblood has many jobs, from Eventing, Dressage Trail Riding and Mounted Patrol. He works hard! I want to make sure his joints are feeling good! He eats it right up!
    Date published: 2017-02-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Improvement My horse has been on this now for 2 months and both myself and my trainer see a HUGE difference. He's happier, looser, his stride is bigger and he's even behind. He'll be 17 in April and competes regularly and is ridden 6 days a week with at least 3 of those days being jumping lessons (mostly at 2'6" - 3'3"). I can't believe the improvement and am so happy!
    Date published: 2017-02-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought it a month ago for my 17 year old horse. He is in great shape but I wanted a preventative supplement. He is very happy with it.
    Date published: 2017-01-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from cosequin still one of the best out there! I used cosequin when it first came out, and after trying others, cosequin remains one of the best. I loved the added msm in this one for the seniors too
    Date published: 2016-12-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I bought this product for my 13 year old gelding just to keep his joints in good health. But unfortunately he would not eat it. So I have been mixing it with water, putting it in a syringe and feeding it to him like a paste. He has been moving a lot better than before, but the palatability of the product doesn't suit my horse's picky appetite!
    Date published: 2016-10-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My horses love the taste! Haven't been using this product long enough to judge results, but it is reassuring that both my aged horses (ages 20 and 34) love the taste. What I can say about my 34 yo mare is that she doesn't have much difficulty getting up from her naps in the sun!
    Date published: 2016-09-08
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fillers? The cosequin ASU seems to have more fillers in it than the original when feeding the amount call for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it ! I have used this product for many years and I love it!
    Date published: 2016-06-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The gold standard in joint supplements. My twenty-something retired buggy horse Saddlebred has only been on this 5 weeks so not much change noted yet. She is picky and I have to doctor with molasses to get her to finish this powder. Sure wish Cosequin would come in a pellet. Cosequin has long been the best in joint supplements for all species. The ASU form does a great job in dogs and hoping it will help this mare as well.
    Date published: 2016-06-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I started my horse back on cosequin after experimenting with other joint supplement pellets from smartpak. he didn't like the pelleted supplements, so I went back to cosequin but took the step up from original cosequin to ASU. he eats it no problem now, and it's super easy! Highly recemend :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results! The improvement was quick and sustained, there is not sign of and discomfort for either of my horses that have been on this for several years.
    Date published: 2016-04-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Already noticed a difference My mare is 14 and has some stiffness in her hind end. I put her on this and already have noticed her kicking up her heels more and being more comfortable. I used to use the plain Cosequin (which is great too) but think this is better for my horse right now.
    Date published: 2016-04-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and true! I use this joint supplement to help sustain join health in my competitive horses. Whether reining or dressage, it has made a difference for my horses.

    Date published: 2016-03-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improvement I ordered this item last month and I have already seen a big improvement in Romeo's attitude and movement. He seems a lot more relaxed when riding as well which is fantastic.
    Date published: 2016-02-26
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Regular Cosequin vs Cosequin ASU I had just purchased the product to compare the results of ASU vs. the regular Cosequin. Honestly I couldn't tell any difference . For the price, I will go back to the regular.
    Date published: 2016-02-18
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing can make my horse eat this! I switched my 20 year old mare to this supplement on the recommendation of my vet (based on the proven scientific results). Only thing is, nothing I try, absolutely nothing, can get my non picky mare to eat this. The mare has never seen a single thing she would not eat...until this. For over a month, I've tried it alone, mixed with applesauce, molasses, brown sugar, added sweet feed, calf manna, everything under the sun. So now she won't even touch her feed with her other supplements (that she'd eaten without so much as a sideways glance for 2 years). It's bitter Apple flavored/scented powder. It's somewhat sticky/tacky so it easily adheres to the sides/bottom of her bowl = lots of waste. So frustrating.
    Date published: 2016-02-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! My horse is back to his normal!! He recovered from a suspensory and now this is keeping him back on track!
    Date published: 2016-01-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from provides comfort to arthritic horse I feed Cosequin ASU because it is supported by research, veterinarians, and many anecdotal success stories, and I feel it is a valuable part of my arthritic horse's maintenance program. Although it is a powder, adding a little water to hay pellets before adding Cosequin ASU ensures that the majority is eaten and not abandoned in the feed bucket.
    Date published: 2015-12-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I had this added to my horse's Smartpak due to his age and the fact he is still in the show ring. He is not as stiff in the cooler months. Great addition!
    Date published: 2015-12-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works wonderfully! It was suggested by trainer to use his product and in very happy with the outcome!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! I switched my horse from smart combo to just cosequin and saw great results
    Date published: 2015-11-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from JOINT SUPPLEMENT Once my horse began with slight arthritis in one of his spavin joints, our vet recommended this product. Tests have shown that this product will help prevent further deterioration and he has had no further incidents or joint injections since being on Cosequin ASU.
