Leg poultice

Dr. Getty-

You have been so helpful regarding the feeding of my barrel mare but I have a question regarding leg strain of which you might be able to answer. I see that you have an MSM Gel that is on backorder. Can you suggest another application that you approve of? There are so many out there and I don't want to apply just anything to my girls legs. Thank you for any information you can volunteer.
Take care-

De Ann

Re: Leg poultice

Hi De Ann,

Thank you for your kind words!

I'm in the process of adding a few new products to my website and I just added a topical that I like very much. It is called Grand Flex Lotion. It contains MSM and Glucosamine, along with Extract of Turmeric and Capsaicin, which significantly reduce pain.

If you decide to try it, please do let me know what you think.

All the best,

Dr. Getty
