No matter what your horses’ activities are, their joints are very important for their daily quality of life, let alone athletic abilities. Horses’ joints can be affected by:
Age related changes in joint structure
Traumatic injury can lead to issues with movement
The over-use of joints has the potential to cause damage
Any abnormalities could cause damage to your horse’s joints or cartilage
Excessive weight can prove stressful on joints
At VetPlus we believe vets are best placed to advise on the right course of action for your pet.
The structure of joints and cartilage provides the body with a natural flexibility and shock-absorbing mechanism to cope with daily activity. These joints are extremely complex and equine joints are often subjected to abnormal pressures because of the work they do. Your vet will be able to perform checks to ensure the health of your horse’s joints.
A variety of factors including age, injury, repeated use and development abnormalities could cause damage to joints and cartilage. Speak to your vet for advice on which of these is causing the problem for your horse and ask for advice on what else may help.
