I have been using Arthramid Vet for 4 years treating TB’s, SB’s and equestrian horses. 90% of my work is lameness identification and treatment. I have injected over 600 joints with Arthramid Vet and have experienced no side effects. I have used all of the alternative joint treatments over the last 50 years and consider Arthramid Vet (in conjunction with triamcinolone in an overall treatment strategy) superior to all other treatments. 85% of my TB lameness localises to the intercarpal joint.If we are treating early cases before severe bone changes have occurred we will achieve long term reduction of joint inflammation.
I have even been using it as a prophylactic in some cases. If we have major bone changes I add triamcinolone into the overall treatment plan as required. I have used Arthramid Vet in Fetlocks,TMT, Coffin, Pastern, and Stifle joints. In the gliding joints it is a superb product with spectacular results. In my experience joint pain on flexion is gone in 2 weeks and, usually lameness markedly reduced, but the maximum result is not achieved until up to 6 weeks. In summary Arthramid Vet is a very valuable treatment option and is my first port of call for all lamenesses involving non septic joint inflammation.
