Injuries to horse tendons can be quite common for two main reasons: horses are flighty animals so tend to run away from perceived dangers before asking questions. That and the work humans ask of horses can be far more taxing than they would experience in their natural environment.
Often without adequate preparation.
Tendons and ligaments tend to be a big area of injury for working horses, whether they are racing, jumping, cross country or dressage.
And because these worlds tend to be so competitive, horses are often asked to keep going, long after it is obvious they have hurt themselves.
When a tendon or ligament is injured, it often means there is a tear. This can take weeks, even months, of rest to heal.
There is another option. Isn’t there always?
Homeopathic treatment is an excellent way to speed up healing, by stimulating the horse’s immune system to work more efficiently.
Sometimes the horse tendons in the back are affected, too, giving rise to a back weakness. Horses with this problem will tend to lie down a lot more than normal, as this gives them relief.
Consult with a professional animal homeopath for fast and lasting results.
