Brenda asks about natural joint care for her Arabian filly

My 2-year old Arabian filly underwent surgery last year for locked stifle, and is showing symptoms again. She and my other two Arabians are in a large pasture and have regular exercise, yet she still developed stifle problems. I also feed them grass hay, some sweet meal and pellets. The mare is a rescue and has been diagnosed with Spavin, so she would benefit from joint supplements also. But, is the Joint Check appropriate for a young horse?

Any advice would be welcome.
Thank you. Brenda

Hi Brenda,

Our Joint Check product is great for all. You may have already looked it over, but
in case you haven't, do know that it includes all that is in our Health Check—
our Antioxidant powerhouse, along with the added benefit of the "joint support"
ingredients. It is what I would suggest.

Again, I don't know how much you've had the chance to see on my sites yet,
but I would ask that you review the "What To Feed" link below and consider
those aspects– if nothing else, especially consider providing our
RED CAL free-choice instead of any other rocks/blocks you may be providing.

With stifles, I do always recommend that at least having a chiropractor
check out if you haven't done so yet.

I appreciate you asking and considering us for your solutions Brenda.

Keep me posted.

Dr. Dan
