TLC's EQUI-BONE formula is different because it was designed to target the source of the problem, a dietary imbalance which may compromise the integrity of the bone structure.   The elements responsible for healthy bone remodeling are more complex than simply ingesting calcium. Whenever a mammal ingests the marcominerals used for bone health, a particular series of actions needs to be performed between these individual elements to ensure the proper utilization of the nutrients. TLC's EQUI-BONE is comprised of a proprietary mineral blend that specifically focuses on the bone remodeling process. 


FOR HORSES WITH A COMBINATION OF BONE & JOINT PROBLEMS:  A product like FLEX-FUEL which contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Glucosamine and MSM can be a great complement to EQUI-BONE.  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. Ringbone - Secondary to Trauma. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2015

    Due to a tendon injury, my stallion developed ringbone secondary to trauma - just 3 wks after he injured his tendon. When we discovered it through xrays, the vet told us he would never ever be ridden again and will mostly likely not even be able to mount a mare. Fast forward to one year later on Equibone - new xrays showed smoothing out of ringbone - not gone but definitely smoothed out with NO new additional ring bone. We were given the okay from the vet to start light western pleasure training. We are starting his training and am putting him back on the loading dose. Can't wait to see what the xrays show us next year.

  2. Navicular bone fracture 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2015

    This last November my gelding fractured his navicular bone. He was being lunged in the arena and hit his front left foot on the fence post. He was instantly lame and I feared the worst. The hit on the post wasn't hard, he was jogging when it happened, but just enough for the fracture to occur. Radiographs showed the fracture, midline. My vet told me he had a poor prognosis for soundness once the fracture had heald. I spoke with another specialist about his fracture and recommended Equi Bone. He felt my horse was already navicular and that is why the fracture occured. I gave it a try. He was on stall rest for 100 days, then small bits of hand walking, then progressed to more. I am happy to say we are trotting for 15 minutes! My vet was impressed with his recovery. I know Equi Bone helped my horse with his recovery. He is sound and happy and he looks better than ever.
