    I have never heard of this. But I know that glucosamine shots help horses with arthritis.

    I've always used it for flies. But never tried it on horses. I wouldn't imagine it hurting though...

    What!! This sounds outrageous. Is this supposed to be oral administration? I don't see how giving something that is acidic can be good for the stomach. I think it would mess with the horses pH balance. I would say stick to glucosamine and chondroitin (there is research for sure out there to back it up); shots typically work better than oral.

    I have heard that it's good for a lot of things, our two horses get about 1/4 cup in two scoops of beet pulp for lunch.

    It wouldn't surprise me if that was the case, I know for a fact though Flax Seed and Fish Oil and just an straight Omega 3 suppliment is great for Arthritis.
