6 yr old with knock knees

I have a 6 year old appendix mare with knock knees. I was wondering which joint supplement you would recommend for maintainance. There is no lameness, heat or issues right now and I would like to keep it that way. I use a flax supplement, and salt daily in a small amount of beet pulp, free choice hay and pasture when possible. Thanks so much for this advice, as well as your monthly newsletter, they are great!!

Re: 6 yr old with knock knees

Hi Lara,

I have had very good results with Actiflex but since you are in Canada, I am not able to have it shipped internationally. If you have a U.S. address, you could carry it across the border and may have success that way.

But one that can be shipped is Hylasport CTS that is worthwhile.

Thank you for your kind words!

All the best,
