Pentosan for horses is formulated with Sodium polysulfate 250 mg/mL in a 50 mL sterile glass vial.
Pentosan equine injection is a concentrated 250 mg/mL anti-inflammatory, cartilage synthesis stimulant, and cartilage repair and protection agent. Pentosan for horses is a concentrated anti-inflammatory that is carefully designed to suit the needs of today’s hard working equines. Pentosan polysulfate sodium equine (PPS) is a derivative of the Beechwood tree and works tremendously to reverse the effects of osteoarthritis in the joints by lowering inflammation and improving the quality of viscous joint fluid for greater range of motion in horses of all ages.
This formulation provides a concentrated dose of anti-inflammatory supplements and stimulates cartilage synthesis, helping repair and protect the joints. Our Pentosan for horses actively reverses the effects of osteoarthritis in the joints and helps minimize any pain or tenderness in the affected areas. It is not a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, so it won’t cause damaging effects on the joints over the long run. If you are looking to provide your horses with relief from joint pain - and support more rapid healing after a race or strenuous workout, consider Pentosan for horses.
Pentosan injections for horses actively work to reduce the side effects of osteoarthritis in joints through a multifaceted approach, including:
By stimulating chondrocyte metabolism, Pentosan Gold increases production of proteoglycans, resulting in healthier cartilage. PPS stimulates production of viscous joint fluid, which improves fluid volume and consistency. Such effects result in more efficient joint lubrication and stabilization, thereby limiting further cartilage damage.
Pentosan Gold also acts as an inhibitory barrier to all factors contributing to joint inflammation. Its anti-inflammatory properties protect cartilage from degenerative mediators, preserving the cartilage and inhibiting the release of highly inflammatory elements. By combatting these chemical releases, Pentosan Gold helps relieve horse joint pain and inflammation.
PPS is a strong fibrinolytic that stimulates the release of activators that promote the dissolution of deposits in synovial tissues and subchondral blood vessels. Our Pentosan Gold formula is designed to increase the profusion of the joint, which results in the stimulation of cartilage healing and repair.
Pentosan equine injection is used to counter the effects of non-infectious inflammatory joint disease, traumatic arthritis, degenerative cartilaginous joint disease, osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis dissecans in horses. Unlike traditional treatments, PPS also promotes healthy joint healing, in addition to being a powerful anti-inflammatory. While other drugs such as anti-inflammatories, corticosteroids, and NSAIDs relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis, Pentosan works to actually stimulate joint healing and repair. Our formula has proven to be particularly effective with concurrent use of Cosequin Equine, a glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate supplement.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION:
Administer through intramuscular injection at a rate of 3 mg per kilogram of body weight (1.5 g per 500 kg horse) for 5 - 7 day intervals for four repetitions. If intra-articular use of Pentosan Gold is required, administer 1 mL through sterile injection.
Pentosan polysulfate sodium equine (PPS) clings to cartilage, and active drug components will accumulate for several days after administration. For maximum effect, tissues should be exposed to the drug over an extended period, which is why four injections are recommended. It is required to allow up to a six month improvement period following a course of four injections to expect improvement. Pentosan equine injection may be administered at any time during this period should the horse become sore after strenuous physical activity to calm inflammation.
Pentosan injections for horses should not be administered to animals with clotting defects, traumatic hemorrhage, infection, renal or hepatic failure, or those within 48 hours of surgery.
STORAGE: Refrigeration is not required. Store below 25℃ and protect from light.
NOTES: This product can be used with any other vitamin or supplement from HorsePreRace.
Horses - PPS is used systemically in horses as a part of conservative management/treatment of osteoarthritis. Studies have shown therapeutic levels in synovial fluid following intramuscular administration.
Dogs - Pentosan is used in the medical management of osteoarthritis and after joint surgery in dogs.
