Exciting Treatment News at ECEVS!


We are pleased to announce that we now offer Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)! Shock wave therapy uses high-energy sound waves that penetrate through soft tissue at customized depths to reduce lameness, increase mobility and relieve pain in animals.

Shock wave has been clinically-proven to treat such conditions as osteoarthritis, tendon/ligament injuries, bone fractures, back pain and wounds. We use the VersaTron focused shock wave technology, considered the gold standard in this treatment. With 1-3 treatments, shock wave stimulates healing to return horses to sound condition.

New products added to ECEVS treatment arsenal!


TildTildren

Tildren is administered intravenously and can be done in the field. Tildren consists of Tiludronic acid, a bisphosphonate which inhibits bone resorption. It is used to treat lameness in horses caused by bone spavin (hock arthritis), back pain, and navicular disease. In a normal horse, bone is continuously being remodeled by bone breaking down and rebuilding. This process allows for adaptation to mechanical stresses that horses encounter in their everyday work/play activities. Cells that rebuild bone (osteoblasts) are produced at a slower rate than cells that resorb the bone (osteoclasts) resulting in bone that becomes less dense in areas subject to physical stress. The less dense bone or osteolysis is a painful condition. Tildren works by regulating bone remodeling in cases where too much resorption occurs. It activates osteoblasts and reduces osteoclasts, thus allowing for denser bones in the high stress areas. Tildren may be re-administered every 6 months as needed.


OSPHOSOSPHOS

OSPHOS is administered by an intramuscular injection. This injectable bisphosphonate is administered for the control of clinical signs associated with Navicular Syndrome. OSPHOS inhibits bone resorption by binding to calcium phosphate crystals (inhibiting their formation and dissolution) and by exerting direct cellular effects on osteoclasts. OSPHOS may be re-administered every 3-6 months depending on patient response.


confidence eqConfidence EQ

Do you have a horse that doesn’t load on the trailer? Maybe a horse that is difficult to handle when to handle during farrier visits? Not so confident in his training? Is he/she nervous or anxious in new situations? Confidence EQ is a new product that can help reduce the stress of both horse and handler. This product is a synthetic equine Appeasing Pheromone (EAP) that replicates the soothing signals a mare sends to her nursing foal. Confidence EQ speaks to horses in a language they instinctually understand. Administration requires no needles! Simply apply a single packet of gel on the nostrils of the horse 30 minutes prior to a stressful event. The application may induce the Flehman response. This response facilitates the pheromone entering the Vomeronasal organ. The response can last up to 2.5 hours and can be reapplied as needed. Contact the office for more information and to purchase Confidence EQ.
