What is Hyvisc (hyaluronate sodium) Injection?

frees horses from the binds of osteoarthritis through a combination of high molecular weight, viscosity, and purity. HYVISC is recommended for the treatment of joint disfunction in horses due to non-infectious synovitis associated with equine osteoarthritis.

  • HYVISC is a clear, colorless, viscous fluid contained in a 5 mL disposable syringe, as a single 2 mL dose.
  • Larger calibrated syringe for easier handling.
  • Contains 22 mg (11 mg per mL) of hyaluronate sodium.
  • Maintains viscoelasticity and lubrication properties similiar to naturally occuring synovial fluid.

Storage:

Treatment may be repeated at weekly intervals for a total of three treatments. As with any intra-articular injection, aseptic technique is used. Precautions Store under refrigerated conditions.
