    GLC 5500 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I was searching for a product to start my 10 year old horse on in order to maintain healthy joints. Am very pleased with the chondrotin sulfate and glucosamine dosages in GLC 5500. My boy seems happy and so am I!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent joint supplement I have been giving this to a mare with a torn suspensory whom I was told would never be sound again. She is now sound and back to work. I don't know if it is the supplement or time or a combo of both but she is back to being completely comfortable so she will continue to get this supplement for the rest of her life.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse won't eat it... I started my 20-year-old gelding on this per my vet's recommendation...unfortunately, he will not eat it reliably. If he is fed in his stall, and kept in most of the day, he will eventually finish it. But my horses are turned out right after AM feeding, and he leaves the powder in the bottom of his feeder. I need a supplement he will eat consistently, and until this comes out in pellets, I'll try something else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this product! This was recommended by our horse's chiropractor so I thought I'd give it a try. Fire is an 18 yr old OTTB gelding with stiffness in his hocks. After having him on this for 5 weeks he doesn't seem to have any stiffness and we were able to take him off his daily dose of Prevacox. Also he's VERY picky but he's eating the powdered supplement with no problems. I'll be keeping him on this permanently now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so far! I'm really happy with this product for my older gelding. It was recommended to me as a good option that would not upset my horse's stomach or appetite. He loves it. Thanks Smartpak!
