Horse supplementation can be a useful resource for any horse owner, beyond simply prescription medication in times of illness or immediate injury. Supplements can help improve longevity, mobility, and health. As with any pet—big or small—it is essential to choose the right supplement best suited to the pet or animal’s needs.
What Are the Signs of Arthritis in a Horse?
Arthritis is quite a common condition among horses and can have devastating effects on their quality of life.
Here are some signs of arthritis in a horse for you to look out for:
- Signs of pain – irritation, verbal distress
- Swelling in the joints
Some supplements can help to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis dramatically. As some supplements need to be dosed appropriately and can interact with prescription medications, it is always best to consult a veterinarian prior to use.
