Tendon And Ligament Injuries

Tendon and ligament injuries left without medical care can significantly worsen the health of the horse. It can be difficult to define health problems without a professional examination. Therefore, if you notice any of the following symptoms, please contact your veterinarian to define a problem and  find appropriate treatment:

Inflammation, heat, and swelling;
Painful limb;
Limping as well as walking with toe tipped up if the tendon is ruptured;
Exercise intolerance, disinterest in physical activity;
Difficulties to walk.

What Can Increase The Risk Of Tendon And Ligament Injuries?

The role of tendons and ligaments is to connect and ensure movement, therefore it is very important to treat them in the right way. Here are some factors you should pay attention to:

Trauma – improper land, fall or slip can cause excessive tendon pull that can create damages;
Overworking or over-exercising – too many fast and uneven activities can create excessive load to the legs. Which might be beyond the horse’s tendon and ligament capabilities. Thereby, tendons and ligaments get constantly weakened and don’t receive the necessary amount of support in the time leading to injuries;
Improperly treated hoof – misshapen hoof can create improper foot and leg balance. Thereby, it might weaken tendons and isolate necessary blood flow to the point it causes damages;
Unsuitable training conditions – uneven ground, incorrectly constructed and placed exercise attributes can create instability, risk of trauma as well as an improper load to tendons and ligaments causing their weakening and limiting regeneration.
