  1. 1. JULY/AUGUST2018 For the latest news visit www.centralhorsenews.co.uk10 ADVICE FROM THE VETADVICE FROM THE VET SUCCESS STORY Discipline: Eventing Injury: Superficial flexor tendon lesion I was presented with an international event horse, that presented with a swollen right fore leg following a weekend of eventing. On initial examination, I was suspicious of a flexor tendon injury to the right fore leg and advised that the horses leg should be scanned by ultrasound. The ultrasound examination revealed that the horse had sustained an injury to its superficial flexor tendon of its right-fore leg. The clients wanted to do the possible outcome and hoped that the horse may one day return to some level of eventing. To aid healing and give the horse the best chance of recovery, I chose to perform Lipogems therapy on the lesion. Prognosis: Following treatment and rehabilitation, the horse has made a successful recovery and has returned to eventing. The horse is now progressing to an even higher level than it previously evented at, leading an international 2 star class several weeks ago. REGENERATIVE TECHNOLOGY IS SAVING CHAMPIONS Be back in the ribbons with Lipogems Equine I t’s the middle of the summer, the ground is hard, then wet, then hard again, and show ground conditions are variable. Managing your horse through the variety of surface conditions in the English summer season can be difficult. When the worst happens, and you are at home the day after a show and you realise that the swelling on your horse’s leg wasn’t a knock in the lorry. It’s the worst kind of news. The sickening sound of your vet taking a sharp breath in as he scans your horses leg or fires off several x-rays is enough to set anyone’s heart racing. Damage to flexor tendons or suspensory ligaments typically mean, at best, considerable time off work and, at worse, an end to a ridden career. Treatments such as blistering, firing (besides being brutal and old fashioned), and tendon splitting have variable and uncertain results, with some arguing that they do no more than simple box rest followed by controlled exercise for rehabilitation. Arthritic joints can mean a similar retirement-to-the-field scenario or at best having to avoid specific ground conditions and pain management with medications. Either way its heart- breaking news knowing your number-one four-legged family member is hurt. Prospects for equine athletes of all levels from the seasoned hack to seasoned Supreme Champions are improving with the development of Lipogems Equine, a regenerative therapy translated for veterinary use from the human medical world. The technology used by a range of accredited veterinary surgeons including Dr Simon Woods BVSc MRCVS from Lower House Equine Clinic in Shropshire orchestrates effective repair of damaged tendons, ligaments and joints. Simon joined the Lipogems Equine team in 2017 as a Consultant Lipogems Equine Veterinary Surgeon, “I am excited to offer this breakthrough regenerative therapy to our patients and be able to assist other veterinary surgeons in their training so that our equines can receive the best possible care nationwide, for what would have previously been career changing injuries.” DOES IT WORK?
