Horse health: What causes Laminitis?

HealthNutritionOnline HealthNutritionOnline HealthNutritionOnline

There are many different causes for Laminitis. Grazing
on lush green spring grass for instance can cause Laminitis.

Your horse gets into the feed room and gorges on too much
feed, or you toss him some lawn clippings, pretty innocent,
may also be a cause for Laminitis or founder.

Would you think that excessive walking on concrete would
cause Laminitis? Well, it most definitely will!

How about hay! yep, hay, especially (fine coastal hay) can
also cause Laminitis.

Your mare retains some membranes after birthing of her foal
and guess what, it can cause Laminitis too.

Dietary changes can also cause Laminitis in your horse and
therefore changes in their diet should be made gradually.

Ponies and thick crested horses are more susceptible to
Laminitis than other horses, who would have thought!

Well we now know that there are a number of reasons that can
and will cause Laminitis in the horse. The best remedy for this
condition is prevention.

Good stable management and nutritional management will help
prevent Laminitis. When that lush spring grass comes in, and your
horse looks longingly across the fence, let him in to graze but,
limit the time your pony or horse spends eating and gradually
let him eat longer periods each day for a 2 week period.

Good all around horse management is the key to preventing
Laminitis in your horse or pony.
