Laminitis, also refered to as founder, can be a devastating disease. Treating the disease naturally can offer some promise in helping the laminitic horse/pony recover. It is important to treat each case individually. It can be harmful to use too many supplements at once, even if they are natural, thus overloading the horse's body. Some of the formulas and supplements offered contain similar ingredients. When using herbal formulas, keep in mind that herbs do not need to be given continuously on a daily basis. Often times it is recomended to give them for 3 weeks and off for one week or give one to two days off each week. It is very important to discuss your treatment with your veterinarian and choose your products wisely.

New research is linking laminitis to metabolic disorders including insulin resistance and cushing's disease.Vets and researchers have discovered that laminitis is not just a hoof issue but is a whole systemic issue and treatment should approach the whole horse and not just the hoof structure. This includes changing the diet to a low starch, low sugar and low carbohydrate feed and hay, evaluating mineral deficiencies, aiding the digestive tract and endocrine system as well as the immune system.

The most important step in treating your laminitic horse or pony is education. Become well informed. There are numerous articles on the disease. Check our site regularly as we will be adding new articles and links to informative websites.
