Race horses and sports horses are frequently subject to tendon problems because of fetlock joint hyperextension during the contact phase.
The aim of treatment is to reduce the biomechanical stress on the injured tendon and to avoid the horse having a long rest period. The use of specific shoes combined with medical treatments and activity advice, such as the choice of exercise ground surfaces, are essential parts of appropriate management of injured horses.
Suspensorix® and Suspensor Ramix® (damage to a suspensory ligament branch) aluminium kinetherapeutic shoes have been specifically designed to contribute to the treatment and tolerance of proximal lesions to the body or branches of the suspensory ligament.
New: Suspensor Onionix® specific treatment for suspensory ligament problems in horses with fallen fetlocks.
Compromix, PHR Sport Motion® or Hyperbolix® shoes are intended for rehabilitation, convalescence or prevention.
