I've been reading up on using RVI (Rubeola Virus Immun) and was wondering about the treatment. I know it's a 6 day 2ml subcutaenous injection, but do you have to continue treatment after that? Does it interrupt the soreness or just alleviate it temporarily. I guess it would depend case by case. It's a little pricey also and can sometimes be hard to get
Boy still struggles on and off with mild back pain. I have a funny tingling in the back of my mind that it may be his SI since he does have an old SI injury that has been treated with massage and chiro. My vet is not experienced with SI injections so I'm hesitant to have that done and was thinking of trying the RVI and see what happens. He doesn't display any symptoms of SI pain other than mild back pain.
Looking for experiences on how it helped your horses. Thanks!

I had some success with RVI in a horse with shoulder pain years back. Yes I had to use follow up dosing. Hard to recall that far back but I think every 14 days. I was told by this vet and another to go as far between the followup dosing as I felt the horse was staying comfy.
It was pricy. But this vet had never used it b4 so he sold it to me at cost.
