Abstract:

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic degenerative joint disease characterized by progressive destruction of articular cartilage, thinning and eventual wearing of articular cartilage and resulted in painful and limited joint movement. Horses presented to Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital, Chennai with a history of lameness and corresponding clinical signs, suggestive of osteoarthritis were included in this study. 94 horses were diagnosed with lameness out of 177. Out of this, 43 horses (46%) had soft tissue affections, 27 horses (29%) had osteoarthritis, and 24 horses (25%) had foot affections. The influence of age, breed and joints in osteoarthritis will be discussed.
