Prescription medications. There are a variety of prescription medications on the market that can help to treat and manage a horse's arthritis. A veterinarian can recommend which medication is best, based on the type of arthritis. Intra-articular (IA), intravenous (IV) and/or intramuscular (IM) joint medications can all treat arthritis. In addition, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or topical creams may be prescribed.
Supplements. Oral joint supplements—in conjunction with prescription joint medications—can be an effective method to manage arthritis in horses. Key ingredients in supplements like glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, and chondroitin sulfate promote daily support of healthy tissues and joint fluid.
Hyaluronic or corticosteroid or acid injections. Both corticosteroid and Hyaluronic acid injections have anti-inflammatory effects when injected into the horse's joints. They can also ease pain and slow the process of deterioration.
Exercise. If possible, riding or general exercise will help keep joints healthy by not only strengthening the muscles that stabilize the joints, but also stimulating synovial fluid production—not to mention it benefits the horse's overall well-being.
Assisi Loop. Whether it's chronic or acute arthritis, the Assisi Loop has been clinically proven to slow the progression of osteoarthritis. If your equine is showing signs of arthritis, talk to your vet about the Loop.
Assisi Animal Health's clinical solutions complete the Circle of Care® — the collaboration of veterinarians and owners in animal health and healing. Our company helps veterinary professionals and owners improve the quality of life for companion animals using the Assisi Loop, the non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical healing device that is based on the same FDA-cleared technology used on humans. The device uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to reduce pain and swelling, and to enhance recovery.
