The Benefits of Optimized Blood Flow in a Horse

Through the innovation of our parent company, Gladiator Therapeutics, Gladiator Equine’s therapeutic devices not only help improve blood flow but also enhance the overall health and well-being of your horse. Optimizing blood flow can benefit a horse in many different ways.

A horse with healthy circulation benefits from enhanced performance, quicker recovery times, and a lower risk of common equine ailments. Yet, the issues arising from poor blood circulation can range from mild discomfort to conditions severely affecting a horse’s well-being and athletic potential, putting them in danger of a life-threatening injury.

Gladiator Equine can explain how this works and how our PTR™ Bell Boots can benefit your horse.

The Impact of Poor Blood Circulation

Suboptimal blood flow in horses can lead to a variety of health issues, including:

  • Muscle tension
  • Reduced performance
  • Slower recovery from injuries
  • Conditions such as laminitis

Conditions such as laminitis – a painful disorder in the hooves – can be caused and/or worsened by poor circulation. This makes it important for horse owners to prioritize this aspect of their equine companions’ health.

The Role of Bell Boots in Equine Health

While blood flow may be important, it’s not the easiest to gauge and track in horses. For this reason, our PTR™ Bell Boots use far infrared technology to treat and improve many different bodily functions, not just blood flow.

Our PTR™ Bell Boots aren’t your average bell boots; they are a leap forward in equine health technology. By focusing on improved blood flow, they ensure that oxygen and vital nutrients reach the legs and hooves more effectively.

This is crucial for reducing inflammation, alleviating pain, and accelerating the healing process of injuries and conditions. Many domesticated horses perform some kind of task, which increases the chances of injury. Having bell boots on hand can help ensure your horse is back in action as fast as possible.

Specific Conditions and Injuries Addressed

The Gladiator Equine PTR™ Bell Boots shine in their ability to provide targeted therapy for injuries resulting from issues such as:

  • Overreaching
  • Puncture wounds
  • Navicular issues

By enhancing blood circulation, these boots play a critical role in the health regime of any horse, especially those recovering from or prone to these conditions.

Benefits of Using Gladiator Equine PTR™ Bell Boots

By leveraging the power of improved blood flow, the Gladiator Equine PTR™ Bell Boots offer a multitude of benefits:

  • Reduced Inflammation: Enhanced circulation helps in flushing out toxins that contribute to swelling and discomfort.
  • Accelerated Healing: With more oxygen and nutrients reaching affected areas, injuries have the potential to heal faster, reducing downtime and discomfort for the horse.
  • Enhanced Performance: Healthy blood flow ensures that muscles receive the oxygen and nutrients needed for optimal function, leading to improved overall performance.
  • Prevention of Conditions: Regular use can help prevent the onset of conditions caused by poor circulation, keeping your horse in peak health.

Maximizing Effectiveness Through Proper Use

For horse owners looking to integrate Gladiator Equine PTR™ Bell Boots into their care routine, understanding the importance of proper use and maintenance is key. Proper use starts with utilizing boots that are properly sized and fitted for your horse.

Sizing and Fitting Guide for Gladiator Equine PTR™ Bell Boots

Choosing the right size and ensuring a proper fit are essential steps in maximizing the benefits of Gladiator Equine’s PTR™ Bell Boots for your horse. An incorrect fit can lead to discomfort and reduce the effectiveness of the boots in optimizing blood flow to start. Here are three simple tips to help you:

  • Utilize the Sizing Chart: Gladiator Equine offers a comprehensive sizing chart that correlates specific measurements with their available sizes. This chart is designed to ensure that you select a size that corresponds closely with the unique dimensions of your horse’s legs.
  • Adjustment for Optimal Performance: The Gladiator Equine PTR™ Bell Boots are equipped with adjustable straps or fastenings to further customize the fit. Ensure these are secured evenly to distribute pressure and prevent any potential for rubbing or irritation.
  • Regular Fit Checks: Regularly checking the fit of the PTR™ Bell Boots is crucial, especially for horses that may experience changes in limb size due to fluctuations in physical condition or workload. Adjust the fit as necessary to maintain optimal comfort and performance levels, and reduce the need for replacement.

Adhering to these guidelines ensures that your horse gains the full therapeutic benefits of the Gladiator Equine PTR™ Bell Boots, promoting healthier blood circulation, supporting faster recovery, and enhanced performance.
