Lameness is an important problem in both performance and pleasure horses, so maintaining optimum joint health is an essential part of good equine care, both for prevention and treatment of lameness. Just like dogs, horses are increasingly living longer due to improved veterinary care and husbandry. Osteoarthritis and other degenerative joint conditions are therefore increasingly commonly seen. In performance horses, these can mean the end of an athletic career. In pleasure horses that are loved as part of the family, this joint discomfort can mean early euthanasia on humane grounds. In response to these problems, Phycox has developed a patented anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving granulated formulation for adding as top dressing on feed for superior equine joint support.
Patented formula with Phycox®, a natural source of phycocyanin with proven health benefits. Recommended to support joint mobility and healthy bone structure. Provides enhanced antioxidant protection and Omega-3 Fatty Acids in palatable granules.
And Phycox®-EQ palatability is GUARANTEED. Its sweet apple and molasses flavor is a hit with horses.
COX Selective Inhibitors A form of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that directly targets COX-2, an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain. Selectivity for COX-2 reduces the risk of peptic ulceration when taken over extended periods of time.
Phycocyanin It has been discovered that a blue-green algae extract and, more particularly, phycocyanin functions as a COX-2 inhibitor that is effective in treating arthritis and other inflammatory conditions in animals. The use of phycocyanin is now patented and effective in reducing inflammation in animals through its ability to selectively inhibit the COX-2 enzyme.
