(sodium hyaluronate) Injection

HYLARTIN V provides serious joint therapy with heavyweight protection

HYLARTIN V is a sterile pyrogen-free solution of highly purified specific fraction of the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid that lubricates joint tissue, reduces friction and helps improve joint action.

Collapse All

    • HYLARTIN V (sodium hyaluronate) is the highest molecular weight product available to help restore synovial health, normal viscoelasticity and joint motion quickly
      • Lubricates Joint Tissues
      • Improves Joint Motion
      • Reduces Friction
      • Treats Non-Infectious Synovitis


    • Molecular chains bind together and restore the synovial fluid to protect the joint from continuous inflammatory assault of destructive enzymes released from white blood cells1,2
    • Sodium hyaluronate is naturally found in all living organisms and has a number of functions in the body. High concentrations of sodium hyaluronate are found in the synovial fluid of a joint
    • For small and medium joint sizes (carpal, fetlock): Inject 2mL (20 mg) of HYLARTIN V intra-articularly
    • For larger joint sizes (hock): Inject 4mL (40 mg) of HYLARTIN V intra-articularly


    • These treatments may be repeated at weekly intervals for a total of 3 treatments
    • Horses should be given two days stall rest before gradually resuming normal activity

    • Do not use in horses intended for human consumption
    • HYLARTIN V must not be administered intra-vascularly
    • Do not use if numerous small air bubbles are present throughout the solution
