Feeling a little stiffer than usual when you swing into the saddle? Chances are, your equine partner is feeling the same. As we age, the synovial fluid in our joints breaks down, making us—and our Paint Horses—feel stiff and sore. This can have a major impact on performance, whether you are going down the rail, down the trail or racing the clock.
Keeping joints lubricated and feeling healthy is often key to keeping your horse in peak condition. But if you’re reluctant to turn to joint injections, there’s an all-natural option for joint relief that is easily absorbed into a horse’s body. LubriSynHA is a liquid joint supplement made of hyaluronan (HA), the main constituent of joint fluid, and given orally.
Unfamiliar with LubriSynHA? Here’s how it works—together with APHA Xtras—to provide relief for your Paint’s aching joints and keep money in your pocket.
One daily dose is all it takes.
Given daily, LubriSynHA maintains healthy joints by improving the quality of the synovial fluid that cushions and lubricates your horse’s joints. Unlike other forms of liquid HA made from animal sources, LubriSynHA is extracted from a microbial source. This method keeps LubriSynHA free from protein contamination that can cause other HA products to break down and lose their effectiveness.
No needles required.
Injections can be expensive, painful and stressful for you and your horse. And to be effective, they must be repeated frequently. LubriSynHA on the other hand is easily administered each day. You simply add 15 milliliters on top of your horse’s feed. It’s odorless and tasteless, and it’s absorbed very quickly through the mucosal membranes in the upper GI tract.
Easy to give. Easy to absorb.
LubriSynHA is a clear liquid in a clear bottle for a reason. The liquid form of LubrSynHA is absorbed more readily and quickly in the tissues of your horse’s mouth and throat, providing joint support in as little as seven to 14 days. Powdered or pill forms of HA must go through the entire equine digestive tract, breaking down the HA molecule and taking far longer for any remaining available HA to get to the joint fluid. Plus, liquid means less waste—you won’t find LubriSynHA in the bottom of the feed tub.
Dosing is simple.
It’s recommended that you start with a “loading” dose for one week of 30 ml or one ounce of LubriSynHA. Then you can drop it to the “maintenance” dose of 15 ml or one-half (1/2) ounce.
The formula is available in four different sizes:
- A pint is a 1-month supply for one horse.
- A quart is a 2-month supply for one horse.
- A half-gallon is a 4-month supply for one horse.
- A gallon is an 8-month supply for one horse.
