Equine laminitis testing

Recent research has indicated that 90% of all laminitis cases have an underlying hormonal problem. Equine Cushing's disease used to be regarded traditionally as an ' old horse problem', but over 30% of 10-15 year old laminitics test positive for the disease!

Without appropriate medication, Cushings cases will continue to have increasingly severe bouts of laminitis.

Diagnosis of the disease requires only a single blood sample to be taken. For further information, give us a ring or go to
