Joint Care For Your Horse
Unsure if you are providing enough joint care to maintain the health of your horse’s joints? You want to prevent arthritis, while also ensuring quality care and optimal movement, right?
Helping your horse live a long and healthy life is something we’re passionate about at Basic Equine Nutrition. Proper nutrition is an important way to assist your foal in growth, as well as the skeletal health of your adult horse.
Growth stages vary in every foal. And the lifestyle of your adult horse will also vary. That is why joint care is so important, and something we actively help horse owners with!
Growing Foals & Joint Care
Every growing horse runs the risk of developmental orthopedic disease and osteochondrosis. Those can be caused by bone trauma, rapid growth, genetics, an imbalance to their hormones and – of course – nutrition. Our belief is that prevention is the best method of approach for your foal. We would be happy to discuss your options and available products to aid in their growth.
Adult Horse’s Joint Health
Inside a joint there is something known as the synovial lining. It contains fluid to prevent the bones from rubbing together, along with ligaments surrounding it to help stabilize the joint. Overall, all the ‘building blocks’ that go into managing and supporting your horse’s joints, will benefit from healthy supplement support.
This is something Basic Equine Nutrition provides, with our Equine Joint Supplements. They promote and maintain optimal joint health, function and mobility, along with natural relief of pain and inflammation.
Some of those products include:
Regenerex Plus …promotes & maintain optimal health and joint function with added Hyaluronic Acid.
Recoverex Plus …promotes and maintains joint health and function. It also has antioxidant properties.
Complete Plus HA … promotes optimal health, gut microflora and immune system, and maintains integrity of cartilage, tendons, skin, hair and hooves.
Devils Claw Pure …is used in cases of arthritis, pain or inflammation and any form of degenerative joint disorders.
Hyaluronic Acid … is a component of collagen, and is classified as a mucopolysaccharide. It belongs to the same category as Chondroitin and Glucosamine. It functions by attracting water to the synovial fluid, and acts as a lubricating substance within the joint. That creates a protective barrier, which reduces friction, relieving inflammation and pain by improving joint function.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
