We received another positive report from Dr.med.vet. Ralf Pellmann in Germany. It concerned an eventing horse with a tendon injury of several centimeters. The prognosis was a rehabilitation time of several months at least.
The horse was treated at the rehab facility Osterheidehof (www.osterheidehof.de) with twice daily treatments on the Vitafloor and twice daily in the exerciser. After only 6 weeks the horse was rescanned and this is what Dr. Pellmann had to say about it:
“the healing process of the tendon can be described as extremely good. Especially considering the short treatment time.”
If you would like to receive the full report of Dr. Pellmann (in German), please contact us and we would be happy to send it to you.
