When will I notice the first effects of the supplementation with Cavalor Arti Matrix?
In some horses, results may show within 4-5 days. However, for best results, we recommend administering Cavalor Arti Matrix for 8 weeks as some of the ingredients need to be supplemented for a longer period of time in order to optimizee and extend their effect.
Why would I also use an oral joint supplement if I’m already injecting my horse regularly with glycosaminoglycans?
Injections have a very high concentration of active ingredients, but the effects last for a short period of time. An oral product provides a lower concentration of active ingredients going into the bloodstream for a much longer period. Oral glycosaminoglycans help reduce the frequency of joint injections and therefore reduce the risks associated with injections.

"Cavalor has conducted many field studies on OCD reduction. A study carried-out in Stable Dubois (France), a farm breeding more than 100 racehorses per year, initially showed OCD levels of more than 24% in foals. After the rations were corrected, OCD levels were reduced to 8% and for the last three years
levels have stabilized at 4-5%. "

"Cavalor Arti Matrix has been vital. I used this product on a particular horse and that horse has never gone to the vet. I ran out of Cavalor Arti Matrix once for a few weeks, and during that time, we had an expensive trip to the vet. Needless to say, that horse went right back on Cavalor Arti Matrix."

Additional Information & Education

Cavalor® Arti Matrix - Professional Line
Provides a unique and universal solution to problems associated with bone, capsules, tendons, cartilage and synovial fluid.

Indication for use

Cavalor Arti Matrix is a widely used feed supplement in the top levels of equestrian sport. Practical research has shown that Cavalor Arti Matrix results in improvement of joint problems and incipient hoof strain. Cavalor Arti Matrix can be used when there is an increased need for specific nutritional elements for the locomotive system (in periods of deficiency caused by acute or structural problems).

Cavalor Arti Matrix works on several levels:
1. Provides the required nutrients for joints and synovia
2. The ingredient composition is optimized for effective nutrient transport

3. Stimulates the body's immunity status to fight against auto-immune reactions

Cavalor Arti Matrix is also used with:
- horses with a sensitive locomotive system.
- horses which are subjected to heavy workloads.
- nutritional deficiency or insufficient intake and/or synthesis.
As a result, the horse's body will benefit from having a wide range of essential substances at its disposal, enabling its locomotive system to rapidly return to a more normalized state.

Composition and safety of the product
Cavalor Arti Matrix enriches the feed with an exceptionally wide-ranging supply of specific albumins that are well suited to the task they have to perform. Cavalor Arti Matrix contains glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid and collagen II. It also contains minerals, vitamins and amino acids that play a crucial role in building bones, cartilage, tendons, synovial fluid, etc. Due to the addition of omega fatty acids, important physiological processes are maintained and stimulated. Colostrum supplies small peptides with immunostimulating properties and growth factors. The presence of herbs and other elements completes this truly polynutritional food enrichment. Cavalor Arti Matrix fulfills the horse's increased nutritional needs quickly and effectively, giving a sustainable effect. We recommend that you consult a specialist before using this product. In consultation with the specialist, Cavalor Arti Matrix® may also be given over a longer period to enrich the feed.

Many medicines are based on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs) that block pain. This can cause even more damage to the joint. With Cavalor Arti Matrix, there may appear to be a deterioration in the first few days. This is NOT deterioration but a necessary physiological change to ensure a rapid recovery after 14 days.

Ponies: 1 sachet per animal per day (=15 grams/ 0.53 oz)
Horses: 2 sachets per animal per day (= 30 grams/ 1.06 oz)
Competition horses: 3 sachets per animal per day (= 45 grams/ 1.58 oz)
For optimal results, double the dose during the first week. After the first administration, continue to give the product until full recovery is achieved, but at least for a period of eight weeks. Subsequently, if necessary, repeat the normal dose every six months for 30 days. Maximum dose per animal per day: 90 grams/ 3.18 oz (=6 sachets).
Follow up with Cavalor Arti Base is allowed after the symptoms and cause of an infection are gone.
