Horse Joints
The skeletal system of a horse has three major functions in the body. It protects vital organs; provide framework and supports soft parts of the body. Horses typically have 205 bones, with the pelvic limb containing 19 and the thoracic limb containing 20. Horse bones act as levers; they store minerals and are the site of red blood cell formation. They can be classified into five categories long bones, short bones, flat bones, irregular bones, and sesamoids. The location where these bones come together is the joint. Movement of a horse is dependent on joints of various types.
The internal pressure building as a result of swollen tissues brings about pain. This inflammation can occur as a result of:
·Repeated trauma.
·Stress to the joint.
·Everyday use.
·Athletic training.
·Incorrect shoeing.
·Excess weight.
Symptoms of joint pain include:
·Lameness
·Swelling
·Heat (usually felt on the fetlock or joint)\
·Raised foot (not wanting to stand on the joint)
If you notice your horse avoiding standing on a leg, or limping call you veterinarian immediately. When calling, be sure to state when the horse first started showing signs of discomfort and any swelling visible to the eye. The veterinarian will most likely prescribe treatment with anti-inflammatories; however some of these medications have side effects. Be sure to ask your vet to explain the medication and potential risks as well as any supplements that can help.
Those supplements are:
·Cosequin Powder
·Cosequin HA+ASU Treat
·Cosequin ASU 1300 gm
·Cosequin Optimized w/MSM 1400 gm
It is very important to keep this in consideration especially if your horse is a performance horse. Performance horses, like human athletes, place a high amount of stress on their bones and joints. This is especially true if the horse jumps, gallops, or performs sudden turns or changes of pace, as can be seen in racehorses, show jumpers, eventers, polo ponies, reiners, and western performance horses. A high percentage of performance horses develop arthritis, especially if they are worked intensely when young or are worked on poor footing. One of the goals for management for these horses often involves caring for the joints to reduce the progression of arthritis. This usually includes a close monitoring of the animal's schedule to determine how to reduce the amount of joint concussion he experiences and feeding him these very effective supplements.
