How do I know that my horse suffers from a joint problem?

Horses are exposed to joint problems as they actively face stress and wear with time. Therefore, it’s important to improve joint health throughout a horse’s lifetime. You can estimate if your horse suffers from a joint problem by observing common symptoms as:

  • Lameness;
  • Difficulties to walk;
  • Heat and swelling in the leg;
  • Painful limb;
  • Stiffness;
  • Exercise intolerance;
  • Disinterest in physical activity.

If you notice any of these signs your horse should be seen by a veterinarian. Then a vet will define an accurate diagnosis and treatment. For example, anti-inflammatory drugs, intra‐articular injections, physical and complementary therapies like Stem Cell Therapy, etc.
