Joint Injections

Injecting a joint with medication to lubricate, protect and prevent further deterioration is one of the most commonly performed therapies in sport horse and lameness practice.  While this is done frequently at Green Glen, it is not a decision we make lightly and the utmost care is taken during the procedure to reduce any chance of complication.  

We choose the medication on an individual basis to provide maximal benefit for each horse's unique circumstances.  This is usually a combination of hyaluronic acid, adequan and certain steroids that have been proven to protect cartilage.  In addition, drug withdrawal times must be carefully considered in competition horses.

If the decision is made that intra-articular injections will benefit your horse, we will discuss what medications are appropriate, what to expect from the therapy and provide instructions on how to manage your horse in the days after the injection.

Considering joint injections for your horse?  Call and speak to one of our vets at 717-235-4312 for more details, or to set up an appointment.
