Absorbine® Products Dominate Horse Journal’s "20-Year Top 10" List

East Longmeadow, MA – Several of the most trusted products from Absorbine® received top honors from Horse Journal in their February 2014 issue as all-time Top 10 products. The publication has reviewed thousands of products since it began publication in 1994, and assembled a list of 10 products that have maintained a high level of quality and reliability throughout those 20 years. The all-time favorites included three Absorbine brands, with the flagship Absorbine® Veterinary Liniment topping the list.

In addition to the favorite Absorbine Veterinary Liniment, ShowSheen® grooming products and UltraShield® fly control products were recognized as all-time Top 10 products. Each of these three brands are the quintessence of the innovation and top quality that Absorbine strives for, as the company has delivered horse owners trusted solutions to their muscle care, grooming, and fly control needs since the inception of Absorbine Veterinary Liniment in 1892.

The history of these distinguished Absorbine products speaks to such recognition of indelible quality. Absorbine Veterinary Liniment is at the cornerstone of Absorbine"s high standards as the company"s original product. For more than 120 years, horse owners have trusted Absorbine Veterinary Liniment to relieve and soothe their horses’ muscle and joint pain. ShowSheen Hair Polish & Detangler celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, as a favorite grooming essential that keeps manes and tails tangle-free and coats healthy. UltraShield continues a long tradition of innovation, as advances in the line have offered effective solutions for pest protection. The line now boasts four distinct fly control options that offer flexible protection across a broad range of conditions.

The substantial presence of Absorbine in Horse Journal’s all-time Top 10 list, with the most products included of any animal health care company, is considered an honor. "We are grateful to Horse Journal for standing by our products as top-quality for the last two decades, and for recognizing the unwavering dependability we have always strived to offer our customers," says Chris Jacobi, General Manager, Equine Division at Absorbine.
