Recently, a fellow boarder found out about a study that Atlanta Equine Center is doing on Pentosan. They were looking for horses that have been on Adequan in the past to try Pentosan. They send you the pentosan to administer and you are required to provide information on your horses performance as compared to Adequan. My older horse has been on Adequan for years. She was accepted into the study and we have just started on the Pentosan loading dose (1 injection per week for 4 weeks, then every 2 weeks).
My vet had to approve the prescription (which she did after reviewing the study). I am very interested to see how my mare does on Pentosan vs. Adequan. I will post here to update as we go. She is 19 and is still happy to do her job. But she raced and then evented--so she has had plenty of mileage on her legs. Any support I can provide to make her a little less creaky is well worth it!
