TLC'S EQUI-BONE IS DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER TRIED BEFORE!

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

  • INJECTIONS - These simply reduce inflammation & sensation of pain. 
  • CORRECTIVE SHOEING - This will remove pressure on the bone, hopefully making the horse more comfortable.
  • BUTE - This will remove 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.

 

THE POWDER VS. THE PELLET FORMULA
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. Hopeful results

    Posted by Amy on 31st Mar 2014

    We have one cutting horse that was diagnosed with slight navicular changes on one foot and an irregular formed navicular bone on the other foot.
    He has been on equibone for 3 years now and other than the 1st year on bute to show him, he has been sound ever since.

    We now have another cutting horse showing slight signs of navicular changes and I am putting that horse on the product and hopefully it will work out as well as the other one.


  2. Worth the expense

    Posted by Mary on 17th Mar 2014

    I had 2 13yo horses that went lame with navicular at the same time. MRI showed navicular degeneration, effusions of the navicular bursa with no soft tissue injury. I put them both on Equi-bone and at the same time we did navicular bursa injections, shoes with rockered toes and heel wedges, Adequan and HA injections systemically. Both horses are completely sound 9 months later (7 months on loading dose) and are back in dressage training. I can't say if it was a combo or 1 of the treatments but I refuse to change a thing in their current treatment. I will not ever take them off the Equi-bone!


  3. Satisfied customer

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Feb 2014

    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!
