Young and active horses are used for a variety of purposes. From racing, riding to simple grooming, the relationships between humans and horses are vast. However, not unlike human being, as horses get older, they also get feebler and become less able.
As all horse owners and trainers will tell you, it is not an uncommon occurrence for old horses to get affected by arthritis. The causes can be plenty and they can range from a sedentary lifestyle to simply old age. Nonetheless, as someone who cares for and loves your horse, there are certain remedies and treatments that you will be able to provide to alleviate the pain. Do bear in mind though that every horse should be treated differently so don’t take the remedies too generally. A remedy that works for one horse might not work for another so it is best that you understand your own horse well enough so that you can apply the best form of treatment.
Older animals quite often get affected by arthritis. Like in humans, it is a painful illness and, unfortunately, no cure exists yet. However, there are many natural remedies or treatments that can significantly help our friends and can work alongside traditional veterinary medicine.
