Equine Laminitis!!

Cindy VanDerVelden - Monday, March 17, 2014

Understanding equine laminitis disease and causes is an important step in diagnosing and treatment of the ailment. This disease is frequently occurring condition of the feet/hooves that can be fatal. It also happens to be one of the most painful, debilitating diseases in horses. Many situations can cause the onset of laminitis such as: a sudden change in feed and excessive consumption of lush pastures, unbalanced nutrition, e.g. unrestrained oat or compound feed consumption, too many proteins/carbohydrates.

This also includes too much sugar, endometritis after foaling with retained placenta, rotten or mouldy feed. Laminitis is caused by toxins flowing with the blood down to the legs to settle in the hooves, which causes the breaking down of the laminae and stretching of the hooves. Fortunately, VetCur has the solution.
