Insurability. In EVERY case, the horse & rider will not be insurable for competition by most insurance companies, as the risk of the horse stumbling and falling with the rider are higher than acceptable for insurance coverage.

Torn DDFT. The DDFT gets damaged in many neuractomies, or as a result of severe sprains due stumbling.

Infections. Any radical procedure with a cut in the skin provides opportunity for bacteria to enter the horse.

Neuromas. A neuroma is a disorganized mass of nerve tissue that occurs where the nerve was cut and can be very painful

Regrowth. Nerve regrowth occurs in over 50% of cases and may result in more pain than the oriiginal condition.

Gallium Nitrate for Navicular Syndrome Treatment

Gallium Nitrate for Navicular Syndrome Treatment Gallium Nitrate is used primarily in humans to treat symptomatic hypercalcemia secondary to cancer. It works by preventing the breakdown of bone through the inhibition of osteoclast activity, thus lowering the amount of free calcium in the blood. The problem is not the free calcium in the blood, but rather that can indicate the bones are weakening.

In horses with Mechanical Navicular Syndrome caused only by abnormal pressure of the DDFT on the Navicular Area due to improper hoof angle, Gallium Nitrate will have no effect. Gallium Nitrate will only have effect on a horse with Navicular DISEASE ( with radiographic pathological proof of bone degradation and/or blood tests indicating free calcium has been lost from bones or is not being absorbed into bones ) but a balanced diet with proper ratios of calcium to nutrients/supplements required for the absorbtion of calcium ( eg. magnesium, vitamine D, etc. ) will do more for such a horse.
