Life Stages

Extend a horse’s mobility span.1

Through every life stage of horses, different management strategies may be needed to maintain their soundness. As horses are living longer, veterinarians and owners are focusing their attention on helping maintain quality of life.2 Since mobility is a vital component to quality of life for every horse, detecting problems early and prescribing prompt treatment when disease or injury occurs is key to maximizing and maintaining healthy joints over the horse’s life span or career. Put another way, a proactive approach to diagnosis and treatment can help extend a horse’s mobility span.
