1. What is Novobrace?
Novobrace is a product that is used to heal tendon injuries. Novobrace forms bonds between collagen fibers of the tendon to create a stable internal brace for the tendon to heal. This allows horses to begin rehabilitation and turnout much faster, as much as 50% faster compared to alternative therapies.
2. How is Novobrace administered?
Novobrace is injected directly into the injured portion of the tendon or ligament. Your veterinarian will do this using an ultrasound to guide them. The procedure is done with your horse standing under sedation (general anesthesia is not needed). The total procedure time is approximately 15-20 minutes. Novobrace field veterinarians are available to consult with your veterinarian about your horse and their treatment plan at no additional cost to you or your veterinarian.
