The Horse is celebrating National Bone and Joint Health Awareness Week by posting up-to-date information about equine bone and joint health. The week is sponsored by Dechra Veterinary Products.

Bone and joint issues are a significant cause of equine lameness and veterinary expenses. Maintaining bones and joints can improve horses’ longevity and comfort. We’ll be posting articles Oct. 16-22 to help educate horse owners about current equine bone and joint health information and research. 

Look for bone- and joint-health related content all this week on TheHorse.com, our Facebook page and Twitter feed, and in our e-newsletters.
