Laminitis

Horses and ponies prone to laminitis must be managed carefully and fed a high fibre, low sugar and low starch diet. This is so much more than just putting the horse on a strict, low calorie diet. Very strict diets can increase the risk of ulcers; increase the risk of colic; be very stressful; lead to malnutrition. Feed the right sort of food and plenty of it to keep everything functioning well. Simple System feeds are ideal as they are based on forages and so are naturally low in sugar and starch. Additional support is available with MetaSlim.

Increasing metabolic rate is also effective. We would recommend applying the following management practices:
No (or reduced) rugging
In warmer months, wash down with cold water after exercise
Provide environmental enrichment (feed balls, scratching posts, forage blocks, stable mirrors) to give your horse other things to do than just eat
Track systems in paddocks will increase natural exercise, or long narrow strips are better than square pens
Company is important for social interaction, playing and mutual grooming
