Help your horse start 2019 off right with Joint Health Awareness Month
60% of lameness problems in horses are related to joint deterioration. That’s why no matter your horse’s age or workload, the best time to start supporting your best friend’s joints is now. SmartPak is here to help you support your horse’s joints from the inside out with expert advice and exclusive deals on best-selling supplements — only at SmartPak, only through January!
“While every horse is at risk for joint deterioration, there are ways that horse owners can be proactive in their horse’s health,” said Dr. Lydia Gray, SmartPak’s Staff Veterinarian/Medical Director. “Joint Health Awareness Month is designed to provide horse owners with the insight and information they need to help them better understand their horse’s joint health and how they can support it moving forward.”
There is no cure for joint deterioration, and it will continue to get worse once it starts. But there are ways you can help your horse! One way to support your horse is with a joint supplement that provides a steady supply of the ingredients he needs to cope with normal wear and tear from exercise and activity.
“Many joint supplements have the classically thought of ingredients, such as glucosamine, chondroitin, and HA, which are backed by clinical research,” added Gray. “But, there are also many new and exciting ingredients out there being studied such as resveratrol, Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables (ASU), collagen, and turmeric which all offer additional benefits.”
To celebrate Joint Health Awareness Month, SmartPak has teamed up with some of its customers’ favorite brands to offer exclusive deals on joint supplements. Along with SmartPak’s own SmartSupplements, there will be special deals on joint formulas from Cosequin®, Equithrive and more.
Cosequin® is the #1 veterinarian recommended joint health supplement brand, and offers four unique formulas for all levels of joint support. These include three exclusive trademarked ingredients found only in Cosequin formulas– FCHG49®Glucosamine, TRH122® Chondroitin Sulfate, and NMX1000® Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables (ASU). SmartPak is also proud to carry three new pelleted formulas from Equithrive®, along with the best-selling Original Joint formula. Equithrive joint formulas include the proprietary resveratrol ingredient Resverasyn®, which is a micro-encapsulated highly bioavailable resveratrol product. In addition to these top brands, SmartPak is offering savings on its popular SmartFlex line of joint supplements as well as the revolutionary SmartStride formula which includes collagen, turmeric, and resveratrol.
