Trikem's high molecular weight hyaluronic acid has a fantastic ability to attract water in the joint fluid, and by improving both shock absorption and lubricating properties, it has a very positive effect on overall joint function.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the body and is normally found in joint fluid. However, the amount of hyaluronic acid the horse produces itself decreases around the age of 12-14 years, which can lead to stiffness and reduced shock absorption - especially during high load or in older horses. In these situations, a supplement of hyaluronic acid is extra important and can make a significant difference to the horse's joints.
The supplement is also good to give preventively to horses in hard training and competition, as hyaluronic acid is consumed faster during these periods than the horse can produce it themselves.
Given to horses who:
- Are exposed to high training loads
- Are older, experience stiffness, or have reduced mobility
- Are undergoing rehabilitation after joint inflammation
4ml per 100kg body weight per day. Double the dose for the first 10 days, divided into 2 doses per day.
- Large horse weighing 500kg - 20ml/day
- Pony weighing 250kg - 10ml/day
At a dose of 20ml/day, 1000ml will last approximately 50 days, and 3L will last approximately 150 days.
