Any time an animal experiences pain, it’s up to the humans around them to understand the causes and treatments. Like many domestic animals, horses don’t always show their pain. It’s part of their survival instinct. But horses, especially our highly trained athletes, can silently suffer from injuries that can cause long-term consequences. A recent study shows that using acetaminophen such as Tylenol along with or instead of NSAID medications can help reduce inflation and pain. Let’s take a closer look.

NSAIDs and Equine Pain Relief

NSAID stands for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These medications, such as ibuprofen, are ubiquitous in the human medicine cabinet. They are also the current go-to pain relief choice for horses, though they must be prescribed and administered by a veterinarian to ensure their safe use. However, like with people, NSAID medications have side effects on horses, including ulcers and colitis. So vets always seek out additional tools to help with pain relief.

The Use of Acetaminophen

The Kentucky Equine Research newsletter reported in September of 2022 that acetaminophen, such as Tylenol, can be added to pain management strategies. It has fewer side effects on the digestive system and can be used instead of or in conjunction with NSAID medications. Of course, research is continuing to ensure its safety.

A Horse-First Approach to Equine Pain Relief

At horseOlogy, we work with veterinarians to ensure that our horses receive the correct pain relief treatment. We also want to ensure that we look at every aspect of our horses and treat them like any other elite athlete. We combine proper vet care with therapies such as swimming, cold salt hydrotherapy, and chiropractic care to promote healing.

Proactive Pain Prevention

We also make sure each horse is trained in a safe way to prevent common injuries from happening. While injuries are not always controllable, we can create a safe environment that reduces exposure to injuries on and off the track. Many of the therapies we listed above can also help prevent pain as horses train for their racing careers.
