Equine Founder


(Laminitis)

Laminitis occurs most often in horses due to grain or high protein overload. Laminitis is the constriction and depletion of the arterial blood supply through the terminal arch within the hoof, caused by histamines and toxins released in the body.

The most common clinical sign of laminitis is:

  • Stiff and soreness in the front legs

Without proper action and preventative measures, the depletion of the blood vessels can cause severe pathology. Therefore, the sooner the treatment begins following incidents that can lead to founder, the better. In severe cases, the animal can become permanently lame. Left untreated, gross pathology with lamino necrosis and third phalynx rotation can become permanent.
