Thank you for your question. My name is***** is both safe and common to use both Previcox and Adequan in horses with joint disease. They work well together and complement each other.I hope that helps, but if you have more questions please let me know.

thank you. is it ok to also give MSM supplement or is that overkill?
Expert:  Dr. Stacy replied 1 year ago.
It might be overkill, but it isn't harmful. I might skip it for now.
