Chances of Success: using the vetdrop system (based on actual work results) High to Very High
There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but you can help prevent osteoarthritis from building up more slowly and less of an impact on causing pain or other dysfunction. In certain cases, if the osteoarthritis has caused a malfunction, the body can be helped to recover, such as neck osteoarthritis, where the vetdrop system can be used over a longer period of time to help calm the area so that it can there is no blockage or malfunction. We found that in the lower areas (legs) the results lasted much longer than in the upper areas such as the neck. This means that in most cases once the horse recovers from osteoarthritis like Spat, there will be no relapse. In the neck or back area, the effects of osteoarthritis disappear over a long period of time, but the area must be treated periodically, especially if the animal has symptoms.
Treatment of Osteoarthritis in horses is always very difficult. In order to treat osteoarthritis in horses, it is important to work with the veterinarian. The vet must recognize the problem as osteoarthritis. This will likely require x-rays. Only then can a Treatment of osteoarthritis carried out on a horse or other animal.

With horses z. B. Accidents in the pasture, especially when foals, fights or games in the pasture, or accidents during sports or training cause osteoarthritis.
Vetdrop is effective in treating osteoarthritis in horses or other animals because the product is delivered to the joints in small amounts. It builds up a depot that is gradually released further into the joint.
Treatment for osteoarthritis is tedious. However, it is not uncommon to see a positive difference in the animal and its behavior within the first 5-6 weeks. This can manifest itself in many different ways, from being kinder in behavior, to accepting the treatment in a way as if they were saying that they really like the treatment and know that it is good for them.
The opportunities for improvement are greater with young animals and we have had great success. The animals were able to return to top-class sport. Older animals are less successful, but the quality of life is definitely improved by the treatment.
If you have the opportunity to do thermography, you can usually tell when the osteoarthritis is no longer active.
