I manage horses that compete in a variety of disciplines with owner ability ranging from novice to professional. As such owner expectations vary markedly for management of joint disease their horse may have. Cases of osteoarthritis typically seen can be early onset or be chronic in nature, ranging from mild to severe. Patient age can be as young as 3 to over 20, and suffering from other disease processes such as endocrine issues. Managing client expectations is a challenge and an art. Finding the best solution for the clients needs is the intended outcome and not always easy to achieve.

Arthramid Vet enables me to effectively manage joints that have mild, moderate or severe osteoarthritic changes for a prolonged period of time with very little chance of having an adverse reaction, even in those patients with other disease processes occurring concurrently. This provides peace of mind for the owner and myself. It also works out to be financially viable in the long-term. Arthramid has been a great option for horse owners of all levels to provide effective osteoarthritis management.

The longevity of effect and owner perception of arthramid not being a bioactive drug, are by far the biggest benefits. I would definitely recommend Arthramid Vet.

We tried Arthramid Vet a few years ago, in the early stages of its development. We had a 6-year-old warmblood showjumper that was frequently lame in its near hind fetlock. We’d been trying to manage him with cortisone but with limited success. X-rays had shown up an OCD lesion so we had that removed surgically and treated him with Arthramid. Within 2 weeks he was completely sound and stayed sound over a successful competitive season. When he went a little off again in the same fetlock in his early preparation about 12 months later we went straight back in with Arthramid and the horse has never looked back. I’ve had nothing but successful outcomes since with Arthramid Vet. In my opinion, to help manage performance horses, the use of Arthramid to rebuild and strengthen affected joints is a better option than repetitive treatments of corticosteroids that don’t resolve the initial cause of the lameness.

I was one of the first vets to use Arthramid worldwide and have now used Arthramid for over 10 years in our clinic. We have injected over a thousand horses and have found it to be very safe. It has been a major game-changer in the way we treat OA in our patients. We have fantastic results with really frustrating cases and are still working on new indications and treatment schemes for the product. We are also looking into the ongoing research, especially around the Mode of Action.
There are not many “new” products implemented in our OA Toolbox in recent years. Regenerative medicine and Bisphosphonates were the greatest new assets and I rate Arthramid Vet in the same league. 2.5% PAAG gives us the chance to minimize corticosteroids and we have no threats of “doping positive “ cases. As well, some horses, instead of being destroyed, are happily back in business. I would encourage every orthopaedic vet to try the product. They will love it, if their case selection is appropriate.

I have been using Arthramid Vet for five years. I see lame horses that I qualify as “non-responders”. The diagnosis/localisation of pain is accurate on those cases, but they do not respond to rest, and corticosteroids +/- HA intrasynovial. These represent my biggest challenge. Arthramid Vet is often of great help on those cases in association with orthopaedic shoeing, magnetic diathermy and a revisited exercise program to regain and maintain soundness.

The second set of cases that represent a challenge are horses presented with poor performance. They are not genuinely lame, but several sites in their body including joints show signs of wear and tear. This accumulation of stress is associated with the athletic activity they perform and also to some individual predispositions to injury (poor conformation, overweight, lack of repair capacities). On these cases, Arthramid Vet for its long duration of action can help.

The third group of horses I see as a challenge are diagnosed with soft tissue injuries within synovial structures (tendon sheath, bursa or joint). In general, the body responds poorly to healing those lesions. It is still unclear to me if Arthramid Vet can help to return some of these horses to soundness when unsatisfactory healing of intrasynovial soft tissue has occurred.

Arthramid Vet is a very potent and very safe drug to use, and I recommend it to my clients and other vets. Arthramid Vet should be in the therapeutic toolbox of any equine veterinarian. I see Arthramid Vet as a solution with great potential, and more work is needed to refine its use.

Arthramid Vet should be in the therapeutic toolbox of any equine veterinarian. ”

We treated Sound (front fetlocks) in December 2019 which correlates with his turn around in form in February and March 2020, he was again treated in June 2020 (front fetlocks) and July 2020 (left front tendon sheath) after a flare of synovitis. Within 3 weeks both fetlocks and tendon sheath were tight and his action terrific. He went on to run 2nd in the Lexus and win the G2 Zipping Classic (5+ months after injection). As an 8yo stallion Sound tends to hold condition and to reach peak fitness he underwent a tough spring training campaign. On his non gallop days he would complete 4000m of cantering daily, this is a lot of miles on his joints and I do not believe we could have kept him sound without the use of Arthramid. Not only did he perform well but he maintained soundness and his action improved throughout the preparation.
