EQUI-BONE for Horses - Navicular - Fractures - Calcium Deposits

Product Description


guarantee.jpg    .




For horses with Navicular, Calcium Deposits(ringbone/sidebone also), Fractures, OCD, Fusing Joints here are the typical unsuccessful remedial actions:

  • INJECTIONS - These may reduce inflammation & sensation of pain, but the bone conditions are still likely deteriorating beneath the surface.
  • CORRECTIVE SHOEING - This will remove pressure on the bone, hopefully making the horse more comfortable until the problem outgrows the corrective action.
  • BUTE - This will reduce the inflammation and improve sensitivity, however continued bute use actually reduces the bones mineral density.  (i.e. it will actually make the bone weaker and more susceptible to injury).
  • POSTERIOR DIGITAL NEURECTOMY - Often referred to as "nerving" the horse, this will again remove the sensation of pain, however in the meantime the bone will continue to deteriorate and the nerves will regenerate, rendering the horse lame again within 12-24 months under most circumstances.
  • JOINT SUPPLEMENTS - Joint supplements are great (for horses that have joint problems).  However, if you're dealing with a horse with one of the above diagnosis', you unfortunately have a horse with a bone problem, which requires feeding a Bone Supplement.  A joint supplement can be a great complement to a bone supplement, but don't be fooled into thinking they're the same thing.

As you can see, ultimately these temporary remedial actions leave the door open for relapses and further injury since the bone itself is in the same condition as when you started caring for the problem or worse.  Within 3-6 weeks of starting EQUI-BONE most horses that are exhibiting symptoms begin improving as a result of this improved mineralization. 

TLC's EQUI-BONE formula is different because it was designed to target the source of the problem, a dietary imbalance which compromises the integrity of the bone and ultimately allows conditions such as navicular, calcium deposits & fractures to develop.   TLC's EQUI-BONE is comprised of a proprietary mineral blend that specifically focuses on the bone remodeling process.  Where other products on the market put the cart before the horse and simply attempt to make the horse more comfortable, we're getting real results IN THE BONE.  You can continue spending hundreds of dollars a month on corrective shoes, injections and other misplaced remedial actions OR you can feed TLC's EQUI-BONE formula and start improving the bone mineralization process today.  A quick search for EQUI-BONE on our facebook page or google will yield you many real world stories of people who have used our product successfully in very dramatic situations.  So you don't have to take our word for it. 

FOR HORSES WITH COMBINATION BONE & JOINT PROBLEMS:  A product like FLEX-FUEL which contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Glucosamine and MSM can be a great complement to EQUI-BONE if joint stiffness symptoms are present along with your bone issue.  To approach a bone issue combined with arthritis complications most effectively, combine 1 scoop of each EQUI-BONE & FLEX-FUEL twice daily.


Our EQUI-BONE pellet formula includes 1,750mg of each Glucosamine and MSM per scoop to help support horses that have cartilage complications in addition to bone complications (the powder does not).  The EQUI-BONE pellets can be added to feed without any mixing, whereas water may need to be added to the powder and mixed in with the grain to make an oatmeal-like paste.  Because of this, pellets are recommended for picky eaters.

For horses with calcium deposits/bone spurs (including ringbone and side bone) it is important to eliminate synthetic Vitamin D3 and outside sources of calcium from the diet. To do this TLC Animal Nutrition, Inc. suggests replacing commercial grains and any supplements containing significant amounts of these ingredients with our own feed ration found at the bottom of the page under "Feeding Suggestions".

For horses with other injuries like navicular or fractures there is more versatility to give other supplements along with Equi-Bone, however ideally switching over to the suggested feeding program would be ideal, but not typically 100% necessary.

  1. From head bobbing lame to sound!

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Nov 2014

    Our 4 year quarter horse mare came up lame in the fall of 2012. We picked her up from the trainer and took her to the Idaho Equine Hospital for evaluation. Bad news, she had OCD of the navicular bone in both front feet. Radiographs showed black holes in the navicular bone. We tried an injection of Tildren and that provided her relief for about 6 months. Our vet indicated that follow-up treatments would provide relief for shorter and shorter periods of time. Our next option for treatment was stem cell therapy with a 50/50 chance of success. Due to the expense and success rate, we decided not to pursue that route. The vet told us we would always have a horse that was pasture lame. I got online and started doing some research and came across your product. After looking at your Equi-bone and some other products by other companies, we decided to try the Equi-bone in February of 2014. In June we noticed she was not lame. In August we started riding her again with no lameness apparent. October we took her back to the Idaho Equine Hospital for re-evaluation. No lameness evident in the lameness exam which suprised the vet. Radiographs showed the black holes were now gray which indicated they were filling in with minerals. The vet was astounded, he has never had a horse with this problem become sound again. He wanted to know what we were doing. He said she was not a candidate for stem cell therapy or further Tildren injections anymore. She was sound and keep doing what we were doing! She is an awesome reined cowhorse who we are putting back into training! Awesome product.

  2. Bone spurs... Really can go down

    Posted by Tammy Brooks on 7th Nov 2014

    So I previously used platinum performance for 2-1/2 years on the recommendation of my doctor and saw no difference in my horse. In the first 30 days of Equi bone, my horse's bone spur has gone down by 1 inch in diameter and my Ferier of 6 years says her feet have never been so good and wanted to know what i was doing different, also commenting she seamed much calmer. I cant wait to see the progress as time goes on.

  3. Excellent Product

    Posted by Debbie, Pellegrino Quarter Horses on 8th Sep 2014

    I have been using Equibone for 6 months, I have two aged mares who have suffered from Navicular problems for quite some time and nothing I tried worked to relieve the pain. I decided to start them both on it and within 3 weeks I noticed a big difference in how they were walking and they seemed to be very comfortable. It's nothing short of a miracle! I have the one mare still on the loading dose but have been able to back the other mare off to the maintenance dose. They are different horses thanks to this wonderful product.
