Equine Osteoarthritis Seminar at PenEq

December 6, 2019

Please join us for this free educational event at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at Peninsula Equine Medical Center, located at 100 Ansel Lane in Menlo Park (at the Portola Valley Training Center). 

 

The veterinarians of Steinbeck Country Equine Clinic and Peninsula Equine Medical Center will be sharing information to help you better understand Equine Osteoarthritis and some of the best strategies for managing this debilitating and painful condition in your horse.

 

 

Osteoarthritis (OA) is an extremely common condition that can be crippling to horses.
It’s characterized by chronic, progressive, degeneration of the cartilage lining the ends of long bones inside joints, as well as the underlying bone and soft tissues. In sport horses, OA is most often seen in the limbs, in hocks, knees, stifles or fetlocks, but any articular joint can be affected including those in the spine, hips and jaw. Signs of OA may include lameness, stiffness, pain, swelling due to excess joint fluid, heat, crepitus (a popping, grinding or crackling sound or sensation in the affected joint), and deformation caused by bony changes.
