Equine laminitis: 1. Management in the acute stage

Equine laminitis: 1. Management in the acute stage

In Practice 28(8): 434-443

Laminitis has been an affliction of domesticated equids since at least 350BC when Aristotle made the first known reference to 'barley disease'. A survey of 113 000 horses in the UK in 1996 found the prevalence of laminitis to be 7.1 per cent. Although extensive research has partially unravelled the pathogenesis, evidence is conflicting and the significance of the different theories remains to be substantiated.
