Be careful using Bisphosphonates: Osphos and Tildren

Osphos and Tildren are in a class of drugs called bisphosphonates. People are using these drugs routinely as part of their “program”. I have resisted using these since they became available. Anyone using these or thinking about using these drugs should watch Dr. Bramlage’s presentation. 

 These drugs can decrease bone pain short term BUT keep the body from healing bone correctly and can lead to bigger problems later in a horses life. One injection can prevent normal bone healing for over 18 months. They have a specific purpose and should only be used very carefully!
