Horses that are more active, such as performance horses or those with a history of tendon or ligament injuries, benefit most from taking ligament and tendon supplements. If you observe a horse in the pasture, they will spontaneously break into a full gate run. Performance horses are trained to dig deep into their reserve and give it their all. This means that all of their approximately 700 muscles are attached by ligaments, and the about 210 bones attached to by tendons are stretching repeatedly. That is awesome but also stressful on the ligaments and tendons.
Ramard Total Tendon Repair supplies the tendons and ligaments with ingredients required to help maintain their biomechanical properties and support the body's natural regeneration and recovery process. It will also support an increase in Type I collagen, which provides greater tensile strength and could help to reduce recurrences. It is critical to address tendon and ligament issues early before scarring occurs. Tendon-related incidences are the most common veterinary-related reason for retirement in performance and racehorses.
Some of the benefits are outlined in studies that have shown that ingredients in Total Tendon Repair have been proven in:
- Normalizing Tendons and Ligaments
- Supporting the healing process
- Support alignment of tendon fibers
- Support strength and elasticity
- Support healthy tendon and ligament formation in growing colts
- It may reduce discomfort and inflammation associated with tendons and ligaments
Your horse can benefit from Ligament and tendon supplements even if they are not a performance horse. Here are some general guidelines for when to consider giving your horse a ligament and tendon supplement:
- If your horse has a history of tendon or ligament injuries.
- If your horse is older or has arthritis.
- If your horse is overweight or obese.
- If your horse has poor hoof quality.
- If your horse is recovering from surgery or an illness.
The question should be, "If you ask this much from your horse, is it not smart to give them all the support they deserve?"
