Description

Diclofenac is a topical analgesic approved by the FDA to treat joint pain and inflammation in horses. It should help your animal feel better within one to two hours, and is approved to be used for up to ten days. Wearing disposable non-permeable gloves, you apply the gel by rubbing it thoroughly into the hair covering the affected joint. Your veterinarian will probably suggest that you don’t use diclofenac on more than one joint at one time, or spread it over an area larger than a five-inch ribbon, because side effects could occur.

Key Benefits

  • Topical anti-inflammatory cream for horses
  • Helps to control pain and inflammation in joints
  • Contains 1% Diclofenac Sodium

I sprang my ankle a week ago and when I used it the first couple times I couldn’t tell the difference but after that I used it again and it gave me immediate total relief . I just apply a good amount it to the area that hurts and it absorbs instantly.
Pros
  • Besides it relieving me of pain it also has a great smell
Cons
  • Expensive if bought OTC

I have been prescribed this exact tube, 2/mo for a year now by my family Physician for osteoarthritis and it even works on torn rotator cuff muscle pain.

I do not wear gloves especially because I rub it into both hands for arthritis.

Zero adverse side effects.
