Managing inflammation is crucial to keeping your horse comfortable and maintaining joint and tissue health, whether he is hard working or retired. If you're concerned about inflammation, talk to your veterinarian about whether a prescription medication like Equioxx, bute, Banamine, or Surpass may be appropriate.
In addition, consider adding an equine inflammation management supplement. Supplements in this category provide MSM and herbs like devil's claw and yucca to support a healthy inflammatory response and help manage the discomfort associated with normal exercise and aging. For more comprehensive support, consider a formula that also includes glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid.
