What Can Lead to Poor Joint Health?



Repeated Use

No matter what your horses’ activities are, their joints are very important for their daily quality of life, let alone athletic abilities. Horses’ joints can be affected by:



As horses age, their joints require nutrients

Nutritional support can be provided when recovering from injury

Over-use of joints can lead to changes

Development of joints is an important part of your horses health

Your Horses Joints

Horses can have joint issues or poor joint health. Some signs may be obvious but other may be more subtle.


If your horse has altered performance, behavioural changes, is less willing to exercise or has reduced mobility, then speak to your vet for further guidance.


Why Should I See My Vet?

At VetPlus we believe vets are best placed to advise on the right course of action for your pet.

The structure of joints and cartilage provides the body with a natural flexibility and shock-absorbing mechanism to cope with daily activity. These joints are extremely complex and equine joints are often subjected to abnormal pressures because of the work they do. Your vet will be able to perform checks to ensure the health of your horse’s joints.

A variety of factors including age, injury, repeated use and development abnormalities could cause issues to joints and cartilage. Speak to your vet for advice on which of these is causing the problem for your horse and ask for advice on what else may help.

Next Steps

Our products are only available through veterinary practices. To find your closest vet practice stockist, please contact us.

What Else Can I Do?

There are many ways equine joint problems can be managed. Your vet will advise you, but you may want to consider:

  • Providing a balanced diet

  • Rest as necessary

  • Hot/cold treatments

  • Physiotherapy

  • Hydrotherapy
