Tendon Repair Formula is vet recommended for horses recovering from tendon and ligament injuries, and for the prevention of injury recurrence. TRF is beneficial for horses in all stages of soft tissue injury and recovery.
Why TRF Is Essential For Soft Tissue Management
The long-held theory that soft tissue injuries in performance horses result from “one bad step” has been proven to be a misconception. Every day your equine athlete’s tendons and ligaments experience micro-injuries at the cellular level, which can accumulate until they eventually result in full-blown injury.
TRF is the first product to combat this micro-damage resulting from daily work, and can help repair damage both before an injury occurs and during injury recovery.
When To Use TRF
Rehabilitation: TRF mediates the horse’s natural repair process during rehabilitation.
Maintenance: TRF supports the management of horses with recurring chronic injuries while in work.
Prevention: TRF supports the natural ongoing soft tissue repair process for sound horses in rigorous work.
The Science Behind TRF
Tendon and ligament injury is the result of micro events at the cellular level which conspire to create eventual acute debilitating conditions. Tenomatrix in TRF contains ingredients that support hydration of soft tissue and may reduce the deleterious effect of inflammation, and may support the body’s natural healing process.
TRF contains a proprietary blend of a synthetic molecule which mimics an endogenous chemokine used throughout the body to maintain cellular health and modify inflammation, and an organic molecule which has been scientifically shown to increase cross linking of collagen which stabilizes the collagen matrix.
Fed daily, TRF can support the body’s natural response to the small regular doses of tendon damage, and may reduce the likelihood that they will accumulate to become a full blown injury.
Targeted Support: 1 pump per 250 lbs. Feed AM and PM or as directed by your veterinarian. (For a 1000 lb horse, 1 feeding = 4 pumps.) Feed until horse returns to normal work. Reduce to maintenance level for continued support.
Maintenance Level: 1 pump per 250 lbs. Feed 1 to 2 times per day depending upon level of work and condition. Feed AM or PM with morning and/or evening feed. (For a 1000 lb horse, 1 feeding = 4 pumps.) Continue administration for maintenance.
