One of the most prevalent medical issues seen in horses is osteoarthritis, which is also referred to as degenerative joint disease. There is no cure for this syndrome, since once physical damage has been done, it cannot be reversed. Slowing progression of the disease through correct management is usually possible, however.
Horses with joint issues evidence lameness, pain on flexion of the affected joint, or even generalized stiffness.1 Early signs of joint disease are often subtle, so owners and managers should monitor their horses for signs such as:
Reduced ability to perform
It should be noted that by the time these symptoms are noticed, irreversible changes to the joint architecture may already have occurred. Commonly affected joints include the hock, pastern, coffin, fetlock, carpal (knee) and stifle joints.2,3
