Legend (Hyaluronate Sodium) Injectable Solution, 4 ml

LEGEND Injectable Solution is indicated in the treatment of joint dysfunction of the carpus or fetlock in horses due to non-infectious synovitis associated with equine osteoarthritis. Equine osteoarthritis can happen in any age and any discipline due to everyday wear and tear. It is permanent and can lead to early retirement and quality-of-life issues in horses.

The active ingredient in LEGEND, hyaluronic acid (HA), decreases the presence of inflammatory mediators in the joint, improves synovial fluid quality, and reduces the degree of lameness. These improvements are seen whether LEGEND is administered by intravenous (I.V.) or intra-articular (I.A.) injection. LEGEND hyaluronate sodium injectable is sterile, pyrogen-free and FDA-approved.

Benefits
