What is the Best Joint Supplement for My Dog?

What is the best joint supplement for my dog?  That is a very common question that I would entertain from my veterinary clients over the years.  When it comes to a joint supplement, you need to look at the purpose or goals for the product and the ingredients.  Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are very common ingredients for canine joint support.  However, is it possible to do better?  Can you provide joint support for your dog, but also joint pain relief and inflammation support at the same time?  Can you do better than the typical glucosamine based joint supplement for dogs?  It depends on your goals.

Why is my horse always lame? Solving the Mystery

One of the most common problems in the equine athlete and pleasure horse is recurring lameness, which can be equally frustrating for owner, rider, and the veterinarian.  At one moment, the issue may seem resolved, bringing relief, but then it may recur or maybe even a new problem develops. Being a veterinarian, horse owner and involved in the rehabilitation of horses, I understand the frustration but have come to realize that there is much to discover, learn and reveal when it comes to seeing the ‘entire’ horse in these situations. More often than not, the primary problem the horse is presented for is actually not the main issue, but in order to see the true problem, we need to step back and look at several factors. Despite us wanting to fix everything in one fail swoop, often the issue is more complex than we would like it to be. (more…)

Inflammation and Impact on Health; Beyond Pain and Swelling

When we think of inflammation in the horse, it is often in the form of pain and swelling.  Joint pain, stiffness, a wound or cut, sore back, sore throat, or even a skin infection.  All of this is true and these conditions are associated with inflammation, but the overall concept goes much deeper, often being unrecognized clinically but all too closely tied with other health conditions.  In the horse, chronic inflammation is linked back to lameness conditions with the tendons, joints and poor hoof health. It is also involved in metabolic conditions, including insulin resistance, allergies and uveitis. It is an important concept to grasp, even on the most basic level, as with this understanding, we have opportunities to intervene which may give us more opportunities to manage and even prevent certain conditions.

Why Your Joint Supplement May Not be Working

Daily aches and pains are one of the biggest problems in the horse or equine athlete.  The aches and pains are often associated with degenerative joint disease or arthritis, on many levels with resulting cartilage degeneration. Most horse owners resort to traditional joint therapies, including glucosamine and chondroitin, in addition to various pain medications or joint injections to help control pain.  Despite these efforts, many are still seeking options to help their horse to get to the next level of comfort.  Let’s take a look at what is going on and what other options may be available.

Curcumin. The Power House of Health Protection for People and Animals

Curcumin, the “Indian Solid Gold” is one of the most cherished spices in the world.  Health is something we all take for granted, but did you know that Curcumin taken daily can bring about dramatic health changes for the positive?  Whether if you suffer from chronic joint pain, lower back pain or overall stiffness, benefits can be seen.  In horses, we battle with joint deterioration, back complaints and overall unsoundness, chasing these conditions with expensive remedies combating something that could be better managed from another standpoint.  Even in horses, dramatic changes can be evident, often creating confusion as to how something so simple can have such far reaching effects.  Pets are no different, suffering from the same clinical maladies that affect humans.  They too can benefit immensely, restoring healthy, vitality and a quest for life.  So, why is this herb so wonderful?
