Joint problems in Horses

Many horses at some point will experience injury either directly to or related to their joints, (eg. Osteoarthritis, Sprained ligaments, Tendon strains, etc). There are several complementary therapies that can be used to provide symptomatic relief for these problems including, magnotherapy, homeopathy and herbal remedies.

MSM, Glucosamine Sulphate and Chondroitin Sulphate are 3 naturally occuring substances that have been used for several years in treating horses - indeed MSM is often found on many horse feed shop shelves. These key ingredients help to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and restore mobility. However, unless these preparations are properly absorbed by the body they will be limited in their success. A new product is now available at Taranet - Forever Freedom.
Forever Freedom combines MSM, Glucosamine, Chrondroitin, Vitamin C with Aloe Vera gel. Aloe Vera is an excellent carrier and enables better absorption to be achieved. In addition Aloe Vera gel by itself is an excellent anti inflammatory, natural pain killer, general tonic (rich in vitamins, minerals and important trace elements) and helps to boost the immune system. Therefore the combination of these provides an unique product suitable for use by your horse or yourself!

It can be used as a preventative measure to reduce wear and tear as well as being used for existing complaints. It has been found to combine safely with conventional drugs. Please remember to consult your Veterinary Surgeon for advice with any ailment (or your G.P. for yourself!).
