Price and specifications of Pentosan Gold for horses
- Pentosan Gold effectively reverses the effects of osteoarthritis in the joints through a series of actions including:
Stimulates chondrocyte metabolism: leads to increased production of proteoglycans and healthy cartilage matrix. PPS stimulates synovial fibroblasts and produces an increased amount of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid resulting in increased production of normally viscous joint fluid. Improving the volume and consistency of the fluid more effectively lubricates and stabilizes joints, limiting further cartilage damage.
Anti-inflammatory activity: PPS has an inhibitory effect on all mediators of the arachidonic acid chain. . PPS also mobilizes lipids and cholesterol into synovial and subchondral blood vessels, which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis in older animals. These effects combine to increase joint prefusion, stimulating cartilage healing and repair.
Pentosan Gold is a state-of-the-art approach to the long-term management of osteoarthritis in horses.
Pentosan Gold is equally effective via intramuscular (IM) and intra-articular (IA) injections. Unlike traditional treatments, the effects are unique.
Pentosan Gold promotes healing and restoration of healthy joints, as well as having a safe anti-inflammatory effect.
Pentosan Gold is not a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug unlike phenylbutazone or cortisone (both have harmful effects on the joints with prolonged use). Pentosan Gold does not inhibit the healing and repair of articular cartilage, rather than simply masking pain, PPS directly stimulates joint healing and repair.
Corticosteroids, anti-inflammatory agents, and NSAIDs relieve the symptoms of osteoporosis but do not change the disease process. Both hydrocortisone and NSAIDs have a marked inhibitory effect on the biosynthesis of components of the cartilage extracellular matrix, thereby limiting the early healing response of cartilage to injury.
- Pentosan Gold is used to treat non-infectious arthritis, painful arthritis, osteoarthritis, degenerative cartilage joint disease and osteochondrosis in horses.
Dosage and method of use of Pentosan Gold for horses
It is given at a dose rate of body weight (500 kghp-12 ml) by intravenous or intramuscular injection at 5-7 day intervals for four injections.
Pentosan Gold is equally effective when given by intra-articular injection.
PPS has an affinity for cartilage and active drug levels will accumulate for several days after administration. To get maximum effect, the tissue must be exposed to the drug over a long period, hence the four injections.
A period of improvement of up to six months is expected after a course of four injections. If at any time during this period the horse develops pain (for example after certain activity), it is safe to give another injection to settle any inflammatory process.
Pentosan Gold is particularly effective and shows synergy with the simultaneous use of COSEQUIN EQUINE (glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate supplement) to provide essential raw materials for joint repair and maintenance.
