You are not going to find a feed through that will prevent or really extend joint injection intervals. There is also nothing that will take the place of joint injections when needed. The best way i support my horses inbetween IA injectioms is by giving 2 full rounds of adequan a year. 6 months apart and polyglycan monthly. I also use Legend on some horses before every run. Pentosan is also a good option. Also, do a google search for “ joint supplements barrel horse world” and you will have several weeks of reading material.

Thank you. I know I can't get around joint injections, but was just looking for something. I also do adequan as well.

I like Equithrive. I have been feeding it to my mare for almost a year. I have seen an improvement with her. When she was due for hock injections and flexed she was visibly off and you could tell she needed them. Since feeding Equithrive, when she was flexed she was barely off so I am a believer in Equithrive. Check out their website as they have lots of information. Equithrive was also recommended by my vet.

I have one that has hocks that refuse to fuse.  When I first started injecting I was told it would be every 3-4 months to return and inject.  I live in ND and really only compete april through october/november.  I did some research and started the horse on pentosan, I am able to make it through the entire season with only the 1 set of joint injections.  Pentosan works if there is confirmed arthritis.  I had original xrays compared with xrays 2 years later and honestly the hocks looked a bit healthier-which is pleasantly surprising since I expect increase of arthritis as the horse is being used more and more.  Injected stifles on same horse the last few years and still make it through the entire season as long as he gets the pentosan. All of mine get MSM daily, mostly for the anti inflammatory needs than anything.  Equioxx is being used on an aged gelding with tore gluteal muscles to allow him some comfort and extension of stride-he was not injected this year.

 Previcox/ equioxx

Only problem, its an NSAID. And if used daily, for long term, can still cause some pretty severe side effects. I would get a joint injected more often before going that route. I do use Equioxx only for a couple days while competing.

MVP Exceed 6-Way. It has made a difference in mine. He has always had dry joints and I've injected him for about 6 years now. Twice he had 2 drops of basically water come out, it's supposed to be elastic and stretch between your fingers. Since adding Exceed to my program what little comes out is elastic and we can get 3-4 drops out. That was the only thing I changed so for me that was my proof to keep going. Plus with it also being an all-in-one you get the other benefits beyond just joint support. I've noticed a difference in my 25 year old that's on it as well, he gets around much better in the winter and looks really good.

I love MVP products and became an ambassador for them because I believe in their products. I am not a dealer and do not sell the products, I just like to share my experiences with it. It has not replaced the need for injections, but I generally can squeak by and extra month or two depending on how much I'm using him. I don't ride from Nov-Mar so he sits and I always injected the middle of march to the end of march, depending on when I could get away from work to make the 10 hour round trip. If I ran all year he'd need injected twice a year, I can usually tell by end of October he's ready to slow down. Last year I made it until the first week in July to inject because I started legging up really late and then this year I went on April 30 and he was fine. Vet thought he could go longer, but with the trip being so long we agreed to just do it because I wasn't wanting to drive back. The Exceed just seems to help him build his natural fluid a bit better, which in turn makes for a more comfortable joint. It doesn't extend the life of the drug injected, but if their natural fluid is stronger it will help. But I don't think anything is going to make a significant impact on the schedule to inject. And it depends on how hard the horse is used as well for how long they'll last anyway

  I never once said to just give previcox lol.... The poster was asking what in conjunction with joint injections. I think joint supplements, especially oral are a waste of money. So while my horses competing heavily during the season they get regular lameness exams with the recommended injections needed from my vet that they may need then previcox to help with inflammation in between vet exams. Everything has repercussions. I'd rather give previcox when hauling for pain instead of wasting my money unproven joint supplements that too can upset the GI.

Agreed! Maybe I read it wrong. I took it as you were recommending the previcox as a supplement, like fed every day. I use it exactly the same way you do.

We use GLC 5500 MAXX and yes have had horses need less injections and even come off them all together and run faster. The first real deal I saw was a 14 yr old mare running 1D had an old injury as a foal then got hurt and vet said to retire her she was done and would never run. We started her on this and not only is she still running but she came back with improved times. My daughters pole horse got faster as well. My vets keep telling me the way my mare is built through the hocks will make her need injections, so we check her every now and then and she is perfect. There are a lot of supplements out there that simply do not work because the average joint supplement is only about 15% into the blood stream this product has been tested at 67%. I use it on everyone who is running and have yet to have to inject. Maybe I am lucky but I do love what it has done as I am not into injections .This product was tested by 3rd party . It is worth a try

I used to be flat against oral joint supplements.

And then I tried OE Game Changer.

It is incredible and we have seen very positive changes in our older horses with it!
