The most common cause of lameness in horses: osteoarthritis, a painful inflammation of the joint. This type of inflammation gradually causes wear and tear and leads to damage to the bone and cartilage. Your equine friend’s ligaments stiffen, and the joint becomes less flexible. The more advanced the osteoarthritis, the less you will be able to do about it. So, swift action is key!

A video says more than a thousand words
Cata is a 19 year old chestnut gelding. He has severe arthritis in both front feet. The first video was taken after one month of rest in the paddock and no medication was given. Even after this one month of rest Cata is still clearly lame left front grade 2/5.
After one month of FLEXI MIX the lameness left front improved significantly from grade 2/5 to grade 0,5/5. Nothing else was changed in his daily routine or nutrition (still rest in the paddock). No medication was given.
