EQUI-BONE is a unique blend given anytime you wish to improve the integrity of bone. Navicular deterioration, calcium deposits, spurs, splints, fracture, or OCD could be your worst nightmare. If the horse has an existing bone complication, feed EQUI-BONE to increase the supply of bone building nutrients, support metabolic function and increase blood circulation to assure that the nutrients reach their targeted destination successfully. Customers generally report more comfortable horses in as soon as 3 weeks and stay on the loading phase of the program for about 5 months. Most competitive riders continue competing during this time.
TLC's EQUI-BONE formula 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. This is done through supplementing the bodies ability to successfully remodel bone, since the body is not effectively doing this on its own. Other products on the market put the cart before the horse and simply attempt to make the horse more comfortable. Ultimately this leaves 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. Don't continue to cover up the problem. Feed TLC's EQUI-BONE formula.
The most commonly misplaced "therapeutic measures" for addressing navicular issues include options like corrective shoeing, injections, and joint supplements. Corrective shoeing can offer relief due to taking pressure off of the navicular bone, so in the short term this benefit allows the horse owner peace of mind, as the horse should be more comfortable. However, in the long term the demineralization process (the gradual loss of calcium from the bone) will continue to occur and the effect that the wedge shoe provided will eventually become ineffective as the state of bone deterioration advances. Injections offer an anti-inflammatory effect, without damaging the organs like bute, however they also do nothing for stopping the demineralization process and will also eventually become ineffective as the state of bone deterioration advances. Lastly, there are products comprised primarily of Glucosamine, MSM, and/or Hyaluronic Acid (HA) claiming to address bone issues such as navicular disease, calcium deposits or fracture. These are joint products, which can be of benefit if there is a soft tissue complication (such as degenerative joint disease or arthritis) contributing to the lameness. Bone integrity will not be impacted by these nutrients alone since they are designed to aid in cartilage growth, inflammation reduction and synovial fluid production. None of these relate to bone density or the mineralizatin process. However, a product like FLEX-FUEL which contains 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.
"It's time to think about puting this horse down". Whether it's your horses worth, sentimental value or both, no horse owner wants to hear those words. Go after the factors that allowed the condition to develop in the first place and use EQUI-BONE to do it - Don't wait until all other options fail you!
Powder Vs. Pellet
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.

Our 13 yo barrel horse was vet checked a year ago. He was lame everywhere. Had X-rays taken and he had several bone spurs with his right front foot being the worst. Our trainer told us about TLC Animal Nutrition. He put one of his horses on Equibone with TLC's guarantee of improved performance. His horse improved with leaps and bounds. After calling TLC and explaining my situation, they also recommended Equibone for our horse because of its bone repairing properties as well as joint support. Well, to make a long story short, just went back to same vet and our horse has ZERO lameness!! Praise God! He's running faster and harder than ever! I'm a loyal customer here on out! Also very impressed with their staff! Very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful! Thanks TLC Animal Nutrition!

I heard many good things about this product, but hadn't really had a reason to try it until my good horse was diagnosed with navicular. Thankfully we caught it before much damage was done, but it was clear that there was an issue based on his performance and the way he was traveling. Within 1 month of using this product, I could see a huge difference. Even while just walking, his stride was more extended and relaxed, and I could hardly keep up with him while long trotting. Cannot wait to see the results within the next several months. Believing he will be better than ever in no time!!

I have a 10 year old gelding with navicular and an old pelvis fracture and this has done wonders for him. He has not been front end lame since 2 weeks after we started the EquiBone and his hip warms up within a minute or two after he starts working instead of 10-15 minutes. He's also jumping small courses and energetic and happy to work. This stuff might seem expensive but the bag lasts quite a while and just think of how invasive and expensive joint injections are! EquiBone is a life saver for my horse!
