    Default Equine Laminitis

    Equine Laminitis Current Concepts

    Description

    The horse industry makes a significant economic and cultural contribution to Australia, and the
    maintenance of horse health and welfare is a primary concern of owners, trainers and veterinarians
    alike. Laminitis is a painful and devastating disease that can cripple a horse and end its productive
    life. There has been a considerable amount of research over recent years to try to understand laminitis,
    but scientists have struggled to reconcile the wide range of apparently unrelated factors which can
    trigger the condition.
    This report describes four research projects that initially focussed on the developmental and acute
    stages of laminitis. The research teams involved in these projects included microbiologists, molecular
    biologists, pathologists, electron microscopists, physiologists and endocrinologists, and this unique
    critical mass has enabled significant contributions to the understanding of laminitis. As new
    knowledge accrued a successful preventive strategy, employing distal limb cryotherapy, was
    developed that is now the only scientifically proven laminitis preventive.
    The importance of this report is that it provides an overview of laminitis for horse owners,
    veterinarians and scientists. It describes the anatomy, physiology and ultrastructure of the horse’s foot
    to form a basis for understanding the complex pathology that underpins the disease. It describes the
    radiology of the horse’s foot and introduces the new technique of retrograde venography.
