Product Description

Support Healthy Bone Development                                                                                                                                                                                .  

 The elements behind healthy bone remodeling are  more complex than simply ingesting calcium. There is a particular series of actions that needs to be performed between the nutrients that are essential for bone health. In other words, the activation process for bone restoration requires the proper balance of nutrients to be effective. TLC's Equi-Bone follows 3 principles to help establish the most effective use of these elements.

1) Ideal Mineral Ratio for Calcium Solubility - Proper mineral balance will aid to improve the rate at which calcium is converted to liquid, meaning that the calcium is in its proper liquid state to be absorbed by the bone cells.

2) Alkaline pH to Improve Calcium Retention - Providing a positive balance of bone building effects because diets consisting of acid forming foods lower pH values and lead to bone loss. Diets consisting of alkaline forming foods raise pH values and show bone preservation.

3) Circulation - Now that we have established the optimum nutrient levels, supported calcium availability and balanced the pH levels, we provide nutrients that support healthy circulation to be sure that these nutrients reach their targeted area effectively.

The Science Behind The Program -  Bone deterioration is a result of bone resorption, a process in which bone cells, called osteoblasts, break down bone and release the minerals resulting in a transfer of nutrients from the bone matrix to the blood. Another type of cell, called osteoclasts, remove bone tissue by removing its mineralized matrix and breaking down the organic and inorganic portions of bone (i.e. they remove the minerals which make up bone density), transporting the degradation products away from the area. Bone resorption is stimulated or inhibited by signals from other parts of the body, depending on the demand for specific nutrients. An acidic diet will induce such effects. For example, in humans, the western diet consists mostly of acidic foods such as meat, dairy, soda and alcohol and we have the highest incidence of osteoporosis of any other country or individual nationality. It is inherently important to provide a proper dietary delivery of bone building minerals in specific proportions to minimize or even eliminate degeneration effects. 

Calcium, phosphorus, sodium, chloride, copper, magnesium and potassium are used to support calcium solubility and to raise the cation-anion balance. By focusing on a high cation-anion balance, the body will experience an alkaline pH level, aiding in retaining more calcium in the bone. Over time, the end result is that more minerals are stored in the bone, leading to a greater bone integrity.              



Commercial "flex" products may provide joint support but the elements included in those products focus only on supporting the joint.  We focus on providing the nutrients required to support healthy bone development in one easy to feed formula.



Our EQUI-BONE pellet will last one horse for 2 months at the loading rate. The powder will last one horse for 2 1/2 months at the loading rate.

For feeding instructions, click the tab above labeled Feeding Instructions.




Feeding Instructions

During the first 5 Months:
1,000-1,200lb Horse: Give 2 scoops, 2 times daily.
600-999lb Horse: Give 1.5 scoops 2 times daily
Under 600lbs: Give 1 scoop 2 times daily

Note: one bag of Equi-Bone pellet will last one horse for two months at the loading rate.

**Note: You may stay on the loading phase longer if necessary, but should not go shorter than 5 months.

For a proactive approach to supporting bone health:
1,000-1,200lb Horse: Give 1 scoop, 2 times daily
600-699lb Horse: Give 3/4 scoop, 2 times daily
Under 600lbs: Give 1/2 scoop, 2 times daily

Equi-Bone Pellet Ingredients: Dicalcium Phosphate, Calcium Proteinate, Magnesium Proteinate, Potassium Chloride, Potassium Amino Acid Complex, Yeast Culture, Glucosamine Hcl, MSM, Salt, Dehydrated Forage Products, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin B-12, Copper Proteinate, Choline Chloride, Zinc Proteinate, Niacin, Potassium Sulphate, Calcium Pantothenate, Cane Molasses, Inositol, Linseed Meal, l-Lysine, dl-Methionine, l-Aspartic Acid, l-Arginine, Dried Aspergillus Oryzae Fermentation Extract, Wheat Bran, Wheat Middlings, Tocopherol (Source of Vitamin E), Biotin, Sodium Selenite, p-Aminobenzoic Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin K, Cobalt Proteinate, Flavoring, Ethylenediamine Dihydriodide, Pyridixoine HCl, Folic Acid, Thiamin, Manganese Proteinate, Vitamin A, Riboflavin, Soybean Oil
*Equi-Bone Powder does not have Glucosamine or MSM added

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 switching over to the suggested feeding program would be ideal, but not typically 100% necessary.

  1. Lameness 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jan 2017

    My gelding was just a little off when trotting or loping from a injury he received as a yearling. I put him on Equi-bone and he's going sound.
    This is second horse I put on Equi-Bone and both times the product fixed both horses.
    This product is awesome.

  2. As a veterinarian - I use and recommend this product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jan 2017

    I personally have a horse with navicular. As long as he is on the Equibone, he stays sound and is competing at a high level. I have tried to take him off 3 separate times, and he goes lame again. Needless to say, he won't come off this product again! I have recommended EquiBone to many of my clients with similar results. The product works. Enough said :-)

  3. Dramatic change. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2017

    My horse could hardly move and I was considering putting her down. Thought I would try this product and started to see a change. She is. Now on maintenance level and is walking again.
