At EasyCare we know that the very word laminitis puts fear into the hearts of most horse people. The disease is clearly an emergency, but it’s one that can often be overcome or minimized when treated immediately and appropriately.
You can participate in a free webinar on laminitis diagnosis and treatment on September 21, 8-9 p.m. EDT, on TheHorse.com (brought to you by Vettec). The presentation will provide a practical explanation of laminitis’ effects on the foot and how that imaging guides treatment. With immediate, experienced care, many acute cases of laminitis can be restored to soundness and chronic cases can be kept comfortable.
This webinar is not designed to promote the barefoot model as a means of treatment and the opinions expressed in the webinar on treatment recommendations do not necessarily reflect the opinions of EasyCare. The information contained in the process of diagnosis is nevertheless very informative.
Using EasyCare protective horse boots such as the Boa Boot, Easyboot Epic or the Old Mac boot in combination with our comfort pads will help in the treatment and correction of laminitis as well as other horse hoof problems.
