In a “new uses for old things” twist, an equine veterinarian in Qatar, Dr Florent David, has reported that a 2.5% hydrogel originally designed as a cosmetic filler can help horses with early stage to chronic osteoarthritis (OA) and could even one day be used to help prevent joint damage.

Florent David, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS & ECVS, Dipl. ACVSMR, ECVDI Assoc., specialist in Surgery, Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Diagnostic Imaging at the Equine Veterinary Medical Center, in Doha, described what he found in published research on the product at the 2019 Northeast Association of Equine Practitioners Symposium, held Sept. 25-27 in Saratoga Springs, New York.
