Horse & Rider
A New Solution
Biphosphonates are a relatively newer treatment option for horses suspected to have navicular syndrome, or degeneration in the bone. Osphos works by stunting the bone regeneration process, specifically slowing the action of osteoclasts, or cells that break down bone, and is given as an intramuscular injection. If degeneration is the issue, medications can slow the process, but it won’t reverse it. Your horse will remain rideable as long as the condition hasn’t progressed to the point pain is unmanageable.
