Racing Thoroughbreds

Efficacy of 2.5% PAAG Hydrogel 

Reasons for performing the study:

Intra-articular administration of a 2.5% polyacrylamide hydrogel (PAAG- Arthramid Vet) is shown to reduce or abolish lameness in distal interphalangeal (coffin) and metacarpo/ metatarso- phalangeal (fetlock) joints in horses undertaking equestrian disciplines. To date there have been no studies evaluating its’ efficacy in inter-carpal (knee) joints of racehorses conducted at an acceptable standard.


To investigate the efficacy of a 2.5% PAAG (Arthramid Vet) in the management of inter-carpal joint lameness in racing Thoroughbreds.

Study design: 

Prospective double-blinded positive-control study.
