Equine Joint Therapy

Master Series

Focusing on quality research and education, this year’s webinar built on the foundation of last year’s successful webinars, expanding on three aspects:

  1. A comprehensive review of regenerative therapies with our new guest presenter, Lauren Schnabel, DVM, PhD, DACVS, DACVSMR

  2. Presentation of new polyacrylamide research, further reinforcing both the safety and the method of action of Noltrex®Vet. Polyacrylamide Hydrogel Viscosupplements Lubricate Cartilage After Mechanical Injury and Biochemical Degradation
    Vishwanath et al, Trans Orthop Res Soc 46:0685, 2021

    Clinical, Histological, and Synovial Biomarker Evaluation of Serial Injections of 4% Polyacrylamide Hydrogel in Normal Equine Metacarpal / Metatarsal-Phalangeal Joints

    McClure, Peitzmeier, and Jackman. 2021 Pending publication 

  3. We tackle some of the hardest aspects of joint management, being under the pressures of limited time and continued intense training, while managing complex joint disease.  Learn from leaders in the standardbred industry, who are using polyacrylamide under this intense pressure, with a caseload of horses continuing to train and race.

    No matter your focus, all equine practitioners can learn how to integrate Noltrex®Vet in their sports medicine caseload, successfully managing not only cases, but owners and trainer expectations.
    This free webinar will be presented from 7:00 – 9:00 PM (EST) on both November 16 & 17, 2021.
