Risk Factors For Squamous Vs. Glandular Ulcers In Horses

Despite being grouped together under the umbrella term “equine gastric ulcer syndrome,” one group of veterinary researchers* recently suggested that equine glandular gastric disease (EGGD) should actually be considered a distinct entity from equine squamous gastric disease (ESGD). This recommendation comes in the wake of their findings that different management and risk factors contribute to […]

Benefits And Challenges To Cryotherapy For Laminitic Horses

Laminitis remains a common and devastating condition that frequently results in long-term incapacitation, recurrence of disease, and even loss of life. While laminitis can’t always be predicted or avoided, sepsis-related laminitis secondary to colic, colitis, or uterine infections, for example, may be avoided with cryotherapy. “Cryotherapy involves the controlled cooling of a horse’s hooves using either ice water or […]

Improving Stem Cell Therapy For Equine Arthritis

Veterinarians continue to look for an effective treatment—and a cure—for osteoarthritis in horses. The latest efforts focus on priming stem cells to decrease inflammation and alter immune cells within the joint. “Stem cells injected into a horse’s joint are exposed to substantial inflammation due to the underlying disease process. Therefore, priming stem cells by incubating them in an inflammatory […]
