Elbow dysplasia is a collective noun for several conditions OCD, LPA en LPC that affect the elbow joint. These conditions can develop from an age of 5 months. A possible cause is asynchronous growth of the bones, caused by obesity or overburdening the joints. It can be worsened by having too much calcium in the food. It’s mostly the cartilage in the elbow joint that is affected. This causes (osteoarthritis), which can be very painful.
The Chinese herbal formula Drynaria is used in combination with Rejoint for the treatment of elbow dysplasia. Your pet will function normally again for the most part and surgery can be prevented. In the past it was standard treatment to have surgery in cases of Elbow Dysplasia. Many vets have changed their mind about this, because the operation can influence the degree of bone overgrowth negatively when the dog ages.
Drynaria/ Rejoint helps prevent bone overgrowth, produces new cartilage, is an analgesic, it’s also anti-inflammatory, strengthens bones and ligaments and it improves blood circulation. The development of new cartilage takes 1-2 months. The analgesic and and anti-inflammatory effect can be seen within 1 – 2 days. When you decide to use Drynaria/ Rejoint, then you have to use it for at least 3 months for maximum effect.

For a guinea pig and rodent is relatively higher than the dosage for cats and dogs. Rodents are herbivores and therefore they need more herbs to get good results.
To administer: with a bit of cheese, meat etc., whatever the animal likes. It is possible to mix it with a bit of food, just make sure everything is eaten.
Result: not immediately, it takes about 1-3 weeks.
Maintenance dose: when your animal is healthy again, you can reduce the dose by 50%.
Preventive dose: 50% of the normal dose.
The elbow joint is a hinge-joint between the humerus(a) on one side and the radius (b) and the ulna (c) on the other side. The areas of bone, which form the actual joint, are covered with cartilage. The space between the surfaces of the joints is filled with a lubricant (Synovia) which plays a role in feeding the cartilage.
d. Processus Anconeus, orange part (PA, = part of the elbow joint)
e. Processus Coronoideus, green part, (PC, = part of the elbow joint)
OCD (Osteochondrosis Dissecans)
LPA (Los Processus Anconeus)
LPC (Los Processus Coronoideus)
This type occurs mainly in bigger, fast growing breeds with pups between four and twelve months of age. OCD is a disease of the cartilage of the joint, usually accompanied with inflammation of the bone underneath. The symptoms are a slowly increased limping, shortening of the length of steps forward, development of getting cripple, the step forwards is getting shorter, overburdening of the joint and turning the leg outward.
Under a microscope the damage is even clearer. It’s easy to spot the damages under a microscope. The cartilage layer is the darker layer on top: it is clear that some of the cartilage is broken. Marked red is the clearly visible inflammation of the bone.
This occurs mostly in larger breeds, although nowadays, it is also seen in the Dachshund and Bassets.
During ossification the cartilage degenerates, due to a abnormal growth process. The Processus Anconeus will not develop properly and will break off. Most of the time, the loose piece of bone was removed by a vet, but nowadays that is not common practice anymore. When removing part of the joint, the body will react by “filling in” that part again thus causing bone deformation. This is a painful an irreversible process. Nowadays, instead of an operation, one chooses to let the joint develop as best as possible, with the aid of natural formulas.
Same as LPA.
