HYVISC 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: Store under refrigerated conditions, 2° - 8°C (36° - 46°F). Protect from freezing and avoid excessive heat.
Dosage: The recommended dose of Hyvisc is 2 mL ( 22 mg) given to horses intra-articularly in small and medium-sized joints (carpal, fetlock). In larger joints (hock), the dosage is 4 mL (44 mg). 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.
