White, a 9 year old warm blood, had severe RF osteoarthritis in fetlock. Previous treatment involved MRI of fetlock, rest and routine intra-articular (IA) injection of hyaluronic acid (HA) and Vetalog. The RF fetlock responded to Stem Cell Therapy, but then RR stifle became unsound. Lameness score 2-3.
Severe osteoarthritis/degenerative joint disease (DJD)
With minimal support, White quickly improved. He was sound for the first 5 weeks without any HA injections. At 5 week evaluation, his lameness score was 1 or sound.
VIVR8 helped White significantly.
