Osteoarthritis is a deterioration of the joints. In fact, any joint can be affected by it. In healthy joints, a layer of cartilage covers the bone surface. This protects the bone and allows the joints to function smoothly. The so-called synovial fluid nourishes the cartilage layer. Too much stress or too little movement of the joints leads to a deficiency in the cartilage.
So that the joint functionality of your horse can be maintained for as long as possible, we recommend a healthy amount of exercise and the supplementary intake of Hypolene. Hypolene is ideal for horses with severely strained joints.
