7 month old Arabian Filly diagnosed with OCD

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

  I have a 7 month old Arabian filly who was just diagnosed with OCD in both stifles. The lesions are small, no chips or fragments were seen on the x-rays, and they are on a non-weight bearing area of her stiffles. Surgery is not really an option for me at this time since I was laid off from my job last month. (more…)

Coffin Bone Fracture

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010 | Share: Twitter | Facebook

I have a 6 year old gelding that broke his coffin bone 4 months ago. I have been giving him Acti-Flex. Will this product you are selling help him heal faster and get him back racing sooner? He is a harness horse. I had him x-rayed about two weeks ago, and the Vet said it seemed to be coming along. He is walking around fine, but I know if I put him back in training too soon, he may go lame again.

Diagnosed with OCD’s in the Fetlock & Stiffle

  I have a 6 year old appaloosa that was diagnosed with OCD of the fetlock and stiffle joints. He isn’t a performance horse, and rarely gets ridden hard, if at all, but is always injuring himself upon turnout. (He gets out at least every other day). My question is, what % of Hyaluronic Acid do the pellets contain? He is already taking Trifecta for joints, which has a high percentage of H.A. in it. Are your pellets going to help rebuild his cartilage and bone? How does your product work to rebuild and maintain?

Thanks for your time,

QUESTION: I have a 6yr AQHA mare that I bought as a weanling… When I brought her home, I continued her on a steady alfalfa/grass hay diet, supplemented with 1 gal of Nutreana’s Youth Design & 1/2 gal of Empower, with a daily exercise regimine of trotting behind a 4-wheeler up and around our dry farm – the exact same exercise & diet as my stud colt received (same age).

Quarter Horse With Unusual Knots

Dr. Beebe,

I have a Quarter Horse broodmare who came up with a knot that looks like she may have been kicked. Our vet seems to think it is arthritis. We just got her pregnant, too. Is it okay to feed OCD Pellets to her, or should we wait till later? We have a three week old Quarter Horse foal that has just started eating grain. Would it be alright to feed it to her? It says it is for pregnant mares and then it talks about feeding the mare the second trimester. So I need to know if it is okay to feed it to her now with no complications. Thank you for your time, I do appreciate it.
