Top trainers and equine professionals use Legend as the premium joint disease therapy that helps reduce acute inflammation which can lead to chronic damage of the joint. Legend is pure, safe, and reliable and can be administered intravenously and as an intra-articular treatment.
Marquis is the first FDA-approved treatment for EPM, a serious and sometimes fatal neurologic disease in horses. Marquis offers an excellent record of safety and efficacy, in a convenient treatment for EPM. Federal law restricts Marquis to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
