Equine Arthritis in Horses DJD (Degenerative Joint Disease)
Spontaneous joint disease is a common clinical problem in the horse. Surveys estimate that up to 60% of lameness is related to OA (Osteoarthritis) Equine arthritis, otherwise known as degenerative joint disease, is the most common cause of lameness in horses.
Arthritis, often called degenerative joint disease (DJD), is a condition that is not only painful, but makes it difficult for a horse to move about.
The condition is normally characterized as a slowly developing chronic disease of the joint in which the joint surface (cartilage) wears down, resulting in pain and subsequent lameness.
Arthritis cannot be treated, but in many cases, it can be managed. This condition is often an inevitable change as a horse grows older, and often is the reason for a horse to be retired from riding
