    Missing Link Ultimate Equine Hip & Joint (Formerly Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great over all supplement! I lease a 21 year old jumper and he has been on Missing link for two months now. His warming up time is a lot smoother, not so stiff and slow going as it used to be. He just seems to be happier and has that spring in his gait! This product also helps his over all appearance because his coat now shines!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wondeful product! I started using this product a month ago and I've seen great results form this. I have a 15 year old paint mare and a 27 year old QH mare that are both on it and their coats look shiny, silky and manageable. Along with great skin and coat, my girls are moving more comfortably and they eat this up with no problems with there daily grain.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent supplement I liked that it's given once daily and have noticed a difference in my horse's coat over the past few weeks. I do like the other joint supportive ingredients but am not sure how they came up with those doses. After opening it's supposed to be refrigerated which is now a challenge at my barn so I'm not sure if I will purchase again because of this. We will see.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Switched to this after another product fired up my easy going Paint. Can't say enough great things about it! He's never stiff, his coat always looks great, and I sleep easy knowing he's getting everything he needs. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supplement Combo I love this product becuase it provides the necessary vitamins and minerals that my horse doesn't get from her tiny serving of feed and it also provides joint support that she needs as an older horse. I get everything she needs in one place and she loves the taste too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing Link with Joint Support Have used Missing Link for our dogs as well. I'm noticing how beautiful our horses coat is - lots of shine! Joy is an OTTB and sometimes has a bit of trouble keeping weight on - her weight looks very good at present. We're in our second month of using this product, and so far, are very pleased.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from My mare wouldn't touch it I ordered this for my 17 year old Hanoverian mare, because I had always heard good things about Missing Link and I liked that it had the Glucosamine plus the vitamins, minerals and ingredients to support coat and digestion. I had thought that it would be good for my mare as I brought her back into work.She gets Triple Crown Low Starch feed which she loves, but she manages to shake it down to the bottom of the bucket and leaves it. If I wet down the feed and mix it in well, she won't eat her pellets at all. I thought that the powder smelled good, but my mare just won't eat it. It may work well for other horses who are less picky.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good!! Put my 11yr old Morgan cross on it. He normally gets a nasty dull winter coat but even after just a month he is still nice and shinny. Also seems to help with stiff joints from being stalled. However he does like to sort it out and has to have his feed soaked with water in order to eat it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your # 1 Supplement for an older horse!!! This supplement made the biggest difference in the overall health, appearance and mood of my 23 year old gelding! He had not been on supplements previously and I was feeding a complete senior with rice bran but it just wasn't enough. This product was recommended by a friend but I was very skeptical, another way to increase the horse budget! Turned out this was the best money I have ever spent and we will be feeding this supplement from here on out! A MUST BUY!
    Date published: 2011-10-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all-around supplement! My TB gelding seems to be doing well with this supplement, and it's nice to just have one supplement that covers all of his needs. The price is great too. I'm pretty certain we will be continuing with this supplement unless something changes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only supplement that works for my OTTB! I love Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine! I had tried several supplements prior and nothing would work for my Thoroughbred's arthritis... I was told about MLPwG by the woman I adopted him from and began using it... My baby boy has not had an issue since! I use the Smartpaks and they are great! I would highly recommend this product to everyone!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Supplement!!! Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine is the only supplement that works for my arthritic Thoroughbred... I began giving him this supplement 2 and a half years ago and have not seen any discomfort since! It is so nice to know that my baby has his comfort back and I love watching him run and play with his younger pasture mate!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even my picky eater likes this supplement. I purchased this supplement to enhance the overall well-being of my elderly gelding. I was a little concerned about him eating it, as he can be picky, but I decided to give it a try based on other users' reviews. My picky senior does indeed eat it with no problem. He hasn't been on it long enough to say I've seen a difference, but it seems like a quality product for a reasonable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Something extra I starting using this on my stallion because he tends to be a bit of a hard keeper, fance pacing and all, it seems to have made some difference, he never got as skinny as he used to, but he wasn't always happy with the powder, and I still have to give him several pounds of grain. I prefer to feed more hay than grain, but it serves its purpose. I would reccomend it, at least to see if it helps, as every horse is different.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I noticed my young mare to have a stiffle problem a few years ago during the cold winter months. The vet said that she should out grow it and to have her trot for 15 mins or more daily. I have been giving her Missing Link Plus w/ Glucosamine for 2 yrs now. It has been extremely cold this year and I have not noticed any stiffle problems at all. I haven't been able to work my mare the last couple of months and she still shows no signs of stiffness or soreness. I believe that this product has helped my mare with her stiffle problem while she was maturing and I will continue to give it to her. It took awhile for her to get over it, but I believe it did indeed help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing Link is It!!! The best money you could ever spend supplementing your horse! I saw first hand what this supplement can do (coat, disposition, energy) and ordered some for my own horse. I can't imagine not feeding this!!!!! We will not go without.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter supplement! I bought this for a 04 SE Arabian stallion, no major health issues, just wanted to make sure he stayed sound going into hard training (endurance) and wanted to improve his coat quality, as a breeding stallion he had been difficult to keep weight on over the summer months.After just a few weeks he is showing a smooth shiny coat and excellent recovery time after exercise.I recommend this to anyone looking for a general health supplement!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used it for years I have been feeding Missing Link to both my horse and dog for years. It has kept their coats shiny and their skin healthy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product I used this over the winter for my 3 horses. 2 are over 12 years and the third is a 8 yr old ottb who looks to have some arthritis in his hocks. They all ate it great and looked healthy and comfortable. They did not work though. I think this is a good product for horses who don't need much joint support, but may need more vit/minerals than their grain gives. I am using a different supplement for the summer while they are in work, but will go back to this in the winter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW... It's only been 3 weeks and I can tell you this, This works. I have noticed improved hair coat and vitality. I was leary about adding suppliments, now I'm a believer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Feed I've only had Mira on this product for a month and am using it for Maintenance/Prevention purposes (she had a major injury a couple of years ago) so haven't noticed too much change health-wise. However, the big thing is that Mira will eat this. She will lick her feed bucket clean. I have never had her be enthusiastic about a supplement, especially a non-pellet type.I accidentally put it in our other horse's feed one night and he licked his bucket clean, too, and he is harder to feed a supplement to than Mira! So this definitely rates with me for palatability.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trying new product I purchased this product for a neglected 2-1/2 year old colt that came into the rescue. He has several joint issues resulting from his severe malnutrition during his growing years so I felt this product would provide the vitamins as well as the joint support he requires. We have just begun using this product and he accepts it in his feed with no issues. Will let you know how he's doing after a couple of months on it to give it a chance to work.
    Date published: 2010-02-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far I bought this for my navicular horse. I can't tell a big change, but a little one. I have only used it about a week, so I think I should notice a big differnce in about a month. He doesn't really like the taste of it but I just add a little bit of Molasse with it and he is good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value! I have a confession: I ordered this for my dog. Java is a large German Shepherd who receives Omegas and Glucosamine as part of his daily feedings. After pricing the canine formulas and coming up with high costs, I thought I'd fall back on what I used to feed my horse. The results are just as I had hoped! Bright, shiny coat, the joint support he requires, and the ease of SmartPak, of course!!I only wish Missing Link included MSM..... 4 Blue Ribbons!
    Date published: 2009-11-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever I have an Arab that is allergic to fly, giving him the itchies and skin/tail problems. The missing link supplement really helps to keep his coat and tail itchy free.
