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.

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?
Lipogems Equine Accredited Vets
are having extraordinary results with
ligaments and tendons, as case after
