Stuff to make life easier
Many cases of laminitis are a result of an underlying hormonal condition like Cushings or Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS). Blood tests can be costly but during April and May Talk About Laminitis are offering vouchers for free lab fees for ACTH tests (for Cushings). Just visit their website, fill in your details and download the voucher.
I used this service last year and it was totally hassle-free: I just emailed the voucher over to my very and waited for the results. What it doesn’t cover is the vet’s call-out and examination fees but it’s still a fantastic offer. My vets didn’t know about it so it’s definitely worth spreading the word!
