Help your horse feel better by treating his hoof pain and discomfort with Osphos—an FDA-approved injectable prescribed to help control the symptoms of Navicular Syndrome. This painful condition affects the way hoof bones absorb minerals, such as calcium. It can then weaken the foot and cause horses to walk or stand abnormally—the same way humans limp when we injure a foot or ankle. Osphos contains ingredients that bind to calcium crystals, helping to limit the breakdown of bone. It may even help to improve symptoms after 28 days, so your equine can get up, get out and enjoy moving again.
For the control of clinical signs associated with navicular syndrome in horses.

Drug & Food Interactions
Concurrent administration of other potentially nephrotoxic drugs should be approached with caution and renal function should be monitored.
