Will Arthroxigen help my Senior's pain from a bone chip in his stifle?
Question: Hello Dr. Kellon, I am taking care of a 32 yr old QH gelding . He is doing well on a balanced senior diet but has pain from a bone chip in his stifle with soft tissue inflammation (per xrays). He is getting 1/4 pill of previcox daily per the vet and devil's claw. Topical Voltaren was recommended by the vet as well. He is still very sore. Is there anything else we can give him for his discomfort? He also gets glucosamine and chondroitin from MBH. Would Arthroxigen be a better choice? Thank you for your time.
Dr. Kellon: Yes, this is an excellent prospect for Arthroxigen and should allow you to back off the NSAIDs and separate Devil's Claw.
