Product Summary:

The Missing Link Ultimate Equine Hip & Joint

This superfood supplement is formulated to reintroduce vital nutrients often missing from hay or grain feed. It bridges the nutritional difference in what a horse would consume in the wild "free range" vs. what is consumed as a domesticated animal. This formula was designed especially for adult horses to provide the vital nutrients often missing from hay or grain feed and also the added benefit of glucosamine to nutritionally support soft tissue, muscle, tendon and ligament function. Our unique synergistic blend of the highest quality ingredients combines nutrients like Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, dietary fiber, phyto (plant) nutrients and naturally-occurring antioxidants from whole foods and whole food concentrates.

Features:

  • Concentrated vital nutrients via whole foods and whole food concentrates
  • Good compliance, great taste
  • Natural – no fillers, preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors
  • Made in the USA
  • Veterinarian formulated
  • Combines Glucosamine with the benefits of essential fatty acids, fiber and naturally occurring phytonutrients to nutiritonally support soft tissue, muscle tendon and ligament function, healthy joints and flexibility, strong tough hoofs, healthy skin and coat, healthy immune system, healthy digestion, and sustained energy level

The ingredients in this product fit my experience with natural products. I have been using this product for about a year. This year in our wet and muddy climate we have had very little hoof rot on our horses and goats. Their hooves seem to resist disease because they are healthy on the inside.

My horses have been on this supplement since they were born and it has greatly benefited their overall health and especially their joints. It is an all around supplement with the added benefit of the glucosamine.

Good joint protection.
LINDA F on Feb 17, 2015
My vet says that my yearling quarter horse colt has OCD. There are some malformations on both of his front knees and his pack pasterns are a little too upright. I am wondering if using the Hip and Joint Missing Link would be the best product to help correct some of these issues as he grows or if you might recommend a different product. Vet encouraged using a glucosamine/MSM product?
Lynn S on Jul 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have had my Arabian mare on the Missing Link since she was born and her mother was on it as well. She has never had any joint problems and i am convinced that part of that is because she has been on the product. If I were you I would at least try Missing link and see if it helps. It certainly cannot do any harm.
Does the hip & joint differ from the skin & coat? Can I alternate between the two for a more rounded supplement or does one or the other work well on all issues. I have been using the hip & joint for about 9 months on a 30 year old rescue horse that was foundered when I got her 10 years ago & then developed cushings disease. I think this product helped her but she had many issues. I had to have her put down a few weeks ago ( I miss her very much). I still have 3 other rescue horses which I will be putting on supplements. also, what about using tri-fecta with the missing link?
Thank You for your help, Peggy
Peggy W on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From what I understand, the Hip and Joint is the same as Skin and Coat with Glucosamine added in. I have had my 24 year old Swedish Warmblood on this since he was 15. He has Cushings and had also foundered 3 years ago and acts like a 4 year old. I have not personally used Trifecta, but after reading about it, it contains more glucosamine than the missing link. It also contains MSM, and Hyaluronic acid. Being rescues, they probably have weakened immune systems. The pre and pro biotics would get them back on track. There is also quite a bit of Biotin, eliminating the need for the separate hoof supplement you would need with the Missing Link. If I were you, I would use the Trifecta. Since it has the glucosamine, you could go with the Skin and Coat to add the Omega 3 and 6. The more I read about Trifeca, the more I wanted to start using it! Thank you for restoring my faith in animal lovers today. It takes a special person to care as much as you do.
is this a powder or a pellet?
alice d on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is a powder and my horses eat it without a problem! I have a young horse with early signs of arthritis and she is performing well with this product and it is affordable! You save a little extra with Auto ship and never run out!
I'm getting a older gelding .Would this be useful?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. I've had my 23 year old Swedish Warmblood gelding on this since he was 15. He acts like a horse less than half his age! He was a Grand Prix jumper and did Three Day Eventing before I got him, and I Fox Hunted First Field on him for years. All of that was incredibly hard on his joints. The Missing Link with Glucosamine is amazing. He loves the taste and his coat is beyond beautiful. i buy the 10 pound bag- it's super reasonable compared to other joint supplements out there. My horse will be on this for life.
