Using Noltrex®Vet for the English Sport Horse

As athletes, sport horses often experience subtle lameness that requires ongoing management throughout their career. Lameness or poor performance associated with joint conditions, as well as inconsistent responses following their treatment, are a major source of missed training and frustration.

In any group of equine athletes competing and training year-round, joints are treated with multiple therapies in order to maximize the reliability and dependability of each therapy used. As such, it is critical to get your year-round joint management strategy correct. By adding Noltrex®Vet to the horse’s annual protocol, trainers and veterinarians agree that the reliance on frequent injections is reduced, and soundness is easier to maintain with fewer interventions from multiple therapies.

For long duration joint lubrication in horses, use Noltrex®Vet.

  • Noltrex®Vet is not a drug
  • Fewer injections reduce the risk of complications from repeated injections
  • Noltrex®Vet is reabsorbed safely by your horse’s body, leaving no residue
  • Any joint can potentially benefit from Noltrex®Vet
  • Horses with Cushing’s Syndrome (PPID), metabolic issues, gastric ulcers (EGUS), or prior laminitis can all be treated safely with Noltrex®Vet
