Veterinarians are confronted with a multitude of products that are rapidly being developed for the treatment and often prevention of degenerative joint disease in horses. To say this is a challenging situation, especially for the new graduates, is an understatement. While there are some treatments that have been around for a long time with well established efficacy, more recently a variety of products are on the market to challenge these. While some are still used via the intra-articular route, many are available as oral products or intra-muscular or intra-venous drugs. The decision as to what to use, how effective each drug is and also what evidence is available to support the claims of each product will be discussed.
