Get connected at the joint junction with Equine Guelph’s interactive online “Journey through the Joints” tool. Put the “fun” in function when it comes to learning what is normal and what is not – in equine joints! Sponsored by Zoetis, the visually striking healthcare tool helps horse owners achieve well-rounded knowledge regarding causes of joint disease and stages of arthritis.
“We think it’s important for horse people to learn about their horses’ joints,” says Dr Cathy Rae, manager of Equine Veterinary Services for Zoetis. “Having a fundamental knowledge of the structure of joints and how they work will help owners better understand the causes and care of lameness.”
Interactive graphics include a 360 degree tour of a horse joint and an actual x-ray to examine! Coupled with games and fact sheets, horse people are sure to learn more about equine joint disease including: prevention, early detection, diagnostic techniques and treatments with Equine Guelph’s online tool.
