PARSIPPANY, NJ, June 1, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Zoetis Inc., the world’s leading animal health company, announced that it has expanded its portfolio of equine care products to include Pro-Stride® APS, Restigen® PRP and CenTrate® BMA, a range of devices used to treat injuries caused by Horses are common and can lead to lameness.
Lameness in horses as a result of musculoskeletal pain, particularly osteoarthritis, is a major cause of veterinary examination1 and can have a significant impact on the physical, economic and quality of life for both the horse and the owner. Equine joint health care is an increasingly important area in equine medicine2.
These stable-side devices offer the possibility to use the natural healing mechanisms of a horse to treat joint and soft tissue diseases. A great advantage of using these devices is the ease with which the horse’s blood or bone marrow can be processed in the stable, which enables immediate use within 15-20 minutes of centrifugation; there is no need for incubation or preparation off-site.
“A healthy horse means more time in the saddle. Zoetis is committed to delivering solutions you can rely on through continuous innovation across the grooming continuum,” said Jeannie Jeffery, Vice President, US Equine at Zoetis. “The addition of Pro-Stride APS, Restigen PRP and Centrate BMA expands our ability to provide equine veterinarians with additional options to improve joint and soft tissue care and is an exciting demonstration of our commitment to horse health and wellbeing.”
