Joint injections are a common therapy used to treat osteoarthritis in our equine athletes. In order to gain the most benefit from joint therapy and avoid potential complications, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions.
Immediately after injections, your horse should be stalled overnight in order to keep the bandages dry and in place. The bandages should stay on overnight or for at least 4 hours. In the week following the injections, your horse will have gradually increased turnout and exercise. Overall, your horse should not exhibit any ill effects from the injections. If any signs of heat, pain or inflammation become apparent, contact the office immediately.
