Arthritis in horses

Arthritis In Horses , Equine osteoarthritis – which used to be known commonly as degenerative joint disease – is a leading cause of equine lameness. The disease normally affects the leg joints or the synovial joints, including the hock, fetlock, pastern, coffin, stifle and knee. It can also involve the horse’s neck and back.

Treatment of Arthritis in Horses

Daily exercise will help keep your horse active and comfortable. Being stall bound often increases stiffness. Daily anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) such as Equioxx can be used long-term, whereas phenylbutazone can be used in acute situations or before more uncomfortable situations.
