Let’s Talk About Laminitis

Laminitis or Founder? Call it what you want, but this challenging condition causing inflammation and severe pain in the feet of horses is a common issue for horse owners. Of course, green grass (or excessive carbohydrates and sugars in the diet), is not the only cause of laminitis and we will be discussing what other triggers can lead to this disease, as well as treatment and prevention, with a focus on dietary management. Dr Natasha Webb will also explain why it is important to keep in contact with your veterinarian and continue to monitor your horse or pony’s feet once a diagnosis of laminitis has been made.
