How Much Do Hock Injections Cost?

A hock injection, also called joint injections, is something that is very commonly given to horses, especially show or race horses.  The horse’s hock joint is very complex and is actually made up of four different joints.  This hock joint is very similar to the ankle joint in humans.  The horse can be affected by injuries in this joint such as arthritis and cartilage damage.  Hock injections are performed on a horse to either localize a lameness diagnosed on a joint or to fight inflammation that may be affecting the horse’s joint.  The medications used for joint injections depend on the diagnosis.  The most common are hyaluronic acid (HA) such as Legend and polysulfated glycosaminoglycans, or PSGAGs (Adequan).  The overall price paid for this procedure varies from one practitioner to another but can be quite costly.
