Can this be used for laminitis

Shannon Clancy

  • VioVet customer since 2019
  • From: Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

Hi I have Bern told
This isn’t safe to use if a horse has had laminitis is this true ?

  • VioVet Staff

There is no evidence to suggest that joint supplements in general are not suitable for laminitics. This particular supplement does contain a dextrose (sugar) base for palatability which of course should be avoided in large quantities for laminitics. However the recommended daily amount is such a small percentage of daily food intake that (given at the correct dose) it would be very unlikely to cause a problem.

Glucosomine 12000 replacing 10000

Susan Galuszka

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Shropshire, United Kingdom

Your website says that Glucosomine 12000 + HA is replacing lucosomine 10,000 + HA + Turmeric. Can you confirm that the replacement product includes Turmeric

  • VioVet Staff

Yes the glucosamine 12,000 does still contain turmeric. Below is a list of ingredients:

Glucosamine Hydrochloride 2 KCl 404,500mg/kg, Maltodextrin, MSM, Turmeric, Sodium Hyaluronate (HA) 300mg/kg

HA? What is this

Marie McNamee

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: North Lanarkshire, United Kingdom

I notice quite a few products have HA.
I am looking at the Glucosamine plus MSM + HA (but it's in a few products). I can't find an explanation for what this HA is - can you advise?

  • VioVet Staff

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is found naturally in the synovial fluid of the joints. It helps to lubricate the joints and so is added to many joint supplements in the hope that it will soothe stiffness and increase mobility. I am not sure how much of it actually gets into the joints when given orally but many people do report good results with supplements of this type.

How many scoops per day for a 500kg horse..


How many of the 25ml scoops does my 500kg horse need per day?

  • VioVet Staff

The measure enclosed in this supplement is a 15g measure. A standard 500 kg horse requires 30g (2 scoops) for the first 30 days then a maintenance dose of 15g (1 scoop) thereafter.

Any good for foal with upward fixation of patella


Would this product help my orphan foal with upward fixation of the patella (stifle lock ) due to loose tendons he's 4 months ??? Desperate for any help !

  • VioVet Staff

Locking stifles are not uncommon in young horses. Most often it is due to weak quadriceps muscles. Some horses will grow out of it as they get older and stronger. Others require strengthening of the muscles around the stifle by walking up hills and over poles etc. Occasionally surgery is required. You should control any pain or associated swelling with non-steroidals (metacam would be best in a foal). The stifle joint is not likely to suffer too much damage but feeding a joint supplement such as Equine America won't do any harm and could help maintain a healthy joint surface. However it will not do anything to cure or prevent the locking stifle.

Feeding Rate


  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: , United Kingdom

Hi there

Is this safe to feed t the loading rate permanently?

Many thanks.


  • VioVet Staff

Yes this can be done. Normally the amount of extra benefit you might get does not warrant the extra cost, so the reduced dose is done more for financial reasons. It is safe to continue with the loading dose life-long if it is helping.

Is this a vegetarian product?

Helen Baker

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Gloucestershire, United Kingdom

Can you tell me if the ingredients are derived from animal sources please or is this vegetarian?

  • VioVet Staff

The company does not state where the glucosamine comes from, but it is very unlikely to be vegetarian. That would make it more difficult to extract and make into the finished product and they would almost certainly state it was vegetarian as a sales promotion if indeed that were the case. Usually it comes from shellfish and the like.

Glucosamine Plus with MSM ASU HA for Horses

kitty fried

1) Is the Glucosamine: glucosamine hydrochloride or glucosamine sulphate please?
2) What is the purity value of the glucosamine?

  • VioVet Staff

Glucosamine sulphate is used in this product. The purity value is not stated. Given that this is such a well known brand I would expect the purity to be high, though it might well vary slightly from batch to batch.

Is this suitable for pregnant mares?

Robyn Gatenby

My mare has been on this over winter and is great, has arthritus in her shoulder when stables/cold weather
She has been lined so will have a foal april 16, is this product suitable for pregnancy, full term? if not, what is?

  • VioVet Staff

There is no reason to stop using this product during late pregnancy or while lactating after foaling. You can continue to give it.

Glucosamine 5,000 reduced from 10,000

Susan Symonds

I see that for manufacturing reasons the glucosamine 10,000 has been reduced to 5,000. Is this really as effective? My 20 and 25 year old horses are currently on the higher dose.

  • VioVet Staff

The manufacturers have advised that those previously using the Glucosamine 10,000 product for joint health maintenance in leisure horses should be able to switch to Glucosamine 5,000 at the recommended dose and see no decline in performance.
