In summary, the amount of scientific information on equine nutraceuticals is increasing all the time. In general, if a practitioner is going to recommend a nutraceutical to clients, he or she should lean toward products that have been scientifically examined. These products most likely have the potential to help equine lameness patients in the preventative or early stages of OA rather than in the advanced stages. Because of the lack of regulation, however, the equine practitioner should examine each nutraceutical individually with their clients and make them aware of the pitfalls of these products.
