My horse has very mild club foot and mild arthritis. He is 8 years old. I still ride him and he doesn’t limp at all he just has a shorter stride on the one side. Is there anything I can do?

Hello Macey!

Arthritis is usually appears gradually and slowly worsen over time! It’s very important to contact your veterinary and find appropriate solution to prevent negative progress. We recommend Stem Cell Therapy with EquiCell product. EquiCell contains stem cells from healthy young donor horse, which can regenerate tissues and prevent damages. It is a simple one injection process.

One of my horses had mild arthritis and I started him on an antioxidant supplement and he has improved 100%. NRF2 is what it is called and I would be happy to give you more information about it.
It’s in his shoulder, I am going to book an appt with the farrier soon and I am going to ask him for his opinion on it
Where is the arthritis? What has the farrier said about the club foot?
I’m not sure. He was used as a ranch horse before I got him, moving and chasing and sorting cows every day. As long as I keep his hooves trimmed he is fine on soft ground like fields and arenas but walking on gravel causes him to gimp a little. He’s fine in the barn on the sement though
Working together with the vet, farrier and physio, you may be able to make the horse as comfortable as possible. Is the arthritis caused by the club foot?
