Abstract

Synovial structures–joints, tendon sheaths and bursa–infections carry a poor prognosis and are career limiting for the equine athlete if prompt recognition and treatments are delayed. Early rigorous intervention and targeted therapy is required when any of these synovial structures are affected. Treatment includes large-volume lavage and local and/or regional antimicrobials in addition to systemic antimicrobial therapy.
