Capped Hock / Elbow / Knee
Capped hock, elbows and knees are all bursal injuries and result from a direct trauma to the area.
E.g. A horse may knock its knee whilst jumping. The result is swelling caused by the production of excess synovial fluid.
Can Niagara Equissage help with Capped hock?
Any build up of synovial fluid can be successfully treated with Niagara Equissage. Although unsightly, such ‘blemishes’ are unlikely to cause unsoundness and Niagara Equissage can do much to reduce their appearance.
Massage the affected areas with the Hand Unit for 10 minutes per day to disperse the fluids and reduce the risk of callous skin forming (by keeping the area nourished with a good blood supply).

After 2 months on Brandes Formula and AfterAce, bill's wind which had always been thick since a nasty virus 3 years ago, has so improved that he took a mere 15 minutes to recover from going his fastest at Highclere's intermediate event. He also has dapples in his coat for the first time ever!! The sign of a healthy horse.

After spending time working in many top yards around the globe, I have found Brandes Formula to be best product I have ever come across to bring a horse back to full health! Any horses that are not thriving seem to improve almost immediately from being put on this stuff. It clears out any mucus in their lungs, and after racing, the amount of time it takes for my horses to recover has halved and recuperation time after racing is minimized. My horses now look great and I would have no problem in recommending this product to anyone.
