Seek regular dental care
Provide adequate nutrition. An elderly horse has different nutritional needs than its younger counterparts. Feed must be top quality and easily digestible. There are many senior horse feeds available designed to meet the nutritional needs of elderly horses. You can also add corn oil to your horse's feed for increased energy and added shine to its coat. However, it's important to consult a veterinarian before making any major changes to your horse's diet.
Care for joints. Joint supplement can relieve tension or pain in your horse and they can stay more active. There are several good options on the market to promote joint health. If the vet recommends pain medication, ask how the Assisi Loop can help supplement their treatment protocols. It has been proven to alleviate both chronic and acute pain in equines. The vet may also be able to administer IV injection of hyaluronic acid to help lubricate joints.
Maintain physical activity. If your horse is still ridable, make sure you spend more time warming up and cooling down and reduce your riding pace. If a horse cannot be ridden, it is vital to maintain them in a pasture to allow them to move about freely. Physical activity will also improve digestion and increase circulation.
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.
