Cosequin Equine has been scientifically developed to contain forms of Glucosamine & Chrondroitin that are easily absorbed by your horse. They help to prevent the breakdown of cartilage in the joints, which is a key cause of pain in osteoarthritis. Cosequin also contains Manganese Sulphate, which helps to stop destructive enzymes from damaging the cartilage.
Cosequin Equine is a very cost-effective supplement as the ingredients are so pure. You only need to give your horse a small amount for it to be effective (see instructions below for how long one 700g tub will last your horse).
Give initial loading rate for 2-4 weeks, then decrease by 3.3g each week until you reach maintenance rate.
Ponies less than 300kg: Loading- Give 6.6g daily. Maintenance- Give 3.3g daily. 700g will last up to 212 days (based on maintenance rate).
Ponies/Horses 300-600kg: Loading- Give 9.9g daily. Maintenance- Give 3.3-6.6g daily. 700g will last up to 212 days (based on lowest maintenance rate).
