What is the treatment for laminitis?


Answer by  mammakat (11147)

Early treatment is VITAL, even a small delay may result in euthanizing. You need a vet and a farrier to institute antibiotics, lancing of abcesses, dietary treatment, preventive intervention.

Laminitis is a chronic disease, and most treatment (in consultation with a veterinarian) centers on pain management: various anti-inflammatory drugs, and special horseshoes to relieve pressure from the inflamed laminae.

Treatment requires a combination of diet control, veterinary care and frequent farrier visits. A visit to the vet and an X-ray will show the degree of damage, and an anti-inflammatory should ease the pain. Your vet and farrier should work together as frequent trimmings are needed to correct hoof angle.
