One square inch of skin contains 650 sweat glands, 100 oil producing glands, 78 heat sensors, 13 cold sensors, 165 structures that perceives pressure, 1300 nerve endings, and 19 yards of blood vessels. When we think of these astonishing numbers, we can understand how important it is to control inflammation.
Inflammation (public enemy #1) is involved with every ache, pain, or disease that occurs in the horse’s body. Under normal conditions inflammation helps protect the body from infection and promotes healing during injuries. In an acute phase, inflammation may be liver saving.
Joint injuries frequently set an inflammatory response into motion, setting the stage for osteoarthritis. A particular enzyme in the body called Cox 2 produces certain chemicals in excessive amount which over-stimulate cartilage destruction. Simply put, joint tissues in the horse’s body generally exist in a state of working equilibrium (tissue degradation to tissue recreation) until the by-products of an over-stimulated Cox 2 enzyme creates a condition of inflammation that destroys the balance.
