Patient discussion about equine

Q. Is the arthritis horses have the same as the arthritis people have?

A. To some extent yes, but not absolutely. In general, animals are widely used as models for diseases in humans. The basic process of arthritis (i.e. inflammation of the joints) is quite similar, although the causes, manifestations and results of this process may vary greatly.
