Is Devil's Claw safe for long term use?
Question: I'm a dealer for Uckele and have a client interested in using the Devils Claw Plus for her laminitic mare. She had two questions- first, is it safe for long term use? There was some concern from a friend of hers that Devils claw isn't safe to be on for long periods. Also is it ok to use in conjunction with Prascend? Thanks in advance!
Dr. Kellon: To date there is no indication long term use of Devil's Claw is harmful. It is certainly far safer than long term use of phenylbutazone or even firocoxib (Previcox, Equioxx). A better choice for a laminitic horse would be Phytoquench pellets, which is also Devil's Claw based. Also consider using LaminOx.
