Med­i­cal Ther­a­pies

Horse & Rider - - HORSEKEEPING -

Apart from ther­a­peu­tic hoof care, med­i­cal ther­a­pies may be in­di­cated de­pend­ing on the na­ture of your horse’s heel pain. These in­clude in­jecta­bles such as Leg­end and Ad­e­quan, or in­tra-ar­tic­u­lar in­jec­tions with cor­ti­cos­teroids and/ or hyaluronic acid. A rel­a­tively new ther­apy is in­tra­mus­cu­lar in­jec­tion of bis­pho­s­pho­nates (Osphos, above, is one) to in­hibit the re­sorp­tion of bone and to help re­lieve pain.
