I have been using Adequan on my gelding for ring bone for 12 years and he is perfectly wound. Also use it on horses that are in the late 20's to keep them comfortable. Excellent Product.

Adequan has worked in cases of upper ringbone and several of our older horses. I highly recommend it. By giving an injection nothing is waisted and your horse receives all of the benefits.
