The humerus fracture in horses is rare due to the extensive short and thick muscular covering but when it occurs it has a poor prognosis. It is usually associated with pre-existing bone fracture due to bone weakening.
These fractures have a negative impact on both the racehorse and the owner thus the need for nutritious supplements that promotes strong and healthy bone development. Collagen matrix is responsible for flexibility and as a media for supporting phosphorous and calcium deposition that is essential for the growth of a healthy bone.
The SynNutra Equine Company produces the most excellent equine supplementation products to prevent the humerus fracture in horses. Their products contain nutrients such as inositol, silicon, and choline that are essential in developing and maintaining the collagen matrix while the Beta-glucans and vitamin K2 (menaquinone) stimulate the deposition of calcium in the bone.
The SynNutra Equine products provide rich sources of vitamin D which is responsible for calcium absorption. They also provide rich sources of magnesium and calcium. If these products are used they can largely reduce the chances of humerus horse fractures thus keeping the horse in the race and reducing the costs of treating the fracture if it occurs.
