Product Info

Osphos (clodronate injection) is used for the control of clinical signs associated with navicular syndrome in horses 4 years of age or older. Navicular syndrome is one of the most common lameness issues in adult horses in which the pain arises in the navicular bone, which sits deep within the hoof. Osphos is available as single-use vials.

Benefits

  • Controls symptoms of lamenesss (navicular syndrome)
  • Helps limit the breakdown of bone.
  • Cautions

    The safe use of Osphos hasn't been evaluated in horses less than 4 years of age. The effect of bisphosphonates on the skeleton of growing horses hasn't been studied; however, bisphosphonates inhibit osteoclast activity which impacts bone turnover and may affect bone growth. Osphos shouldn't be used in pregnant or lactating mares, or mares intended for breeding. Use of bisphosphonates in horses with conditions or diseases affecting renal function isn't recommended. Administration of bisphosphonates has been associated with abdominal pain (colic), discomfort, and agitation in horses. Horses should be monitored for at least 2 hours following administration of Osphos.
