PREVENTING LAMINITIS AND MAINTAIN HOOF HEALTH

Laminitis is an extremely painful, debilitating condition that can be fatal. Traditionally it was accepted that laminitis was inevitable in certain types of pony over the spring and summer months, however this view is now outdated and the disease is in fact preventable.
