How To Stop The Progression of Acute Laminitis In Horses

Current treatments horse owners are doing locally result in either death or a life of agony 95% of the time for horses with acute laminitis.


Causes and Signs of Laminitis

Acute laminitis occurs when there is a disruption in the blood flow to laminae within a horse’s foot that attach the coffin bone to the hoof wall. This disruption can be caused by dietary changes, illness, excessive concussion to the hooves, and other factors. The laminae can become inflamed and lead to lameness, an elevated digital pulse, and other symptoms.


Treatment Options

If you notice the signs of acute laminitis in your horse, it’s imperative to halt its progression as soon as possible. If left untreated, acute laminitis can become chronic and lead to a host of other problems for the animal. You can have the horse stand on sand or in ice water to relieve pain, and you should speak to your veterinarian about options. What’s most important is that you treat acute laminitis right away to avoid further complications.


Using Desmosphyrine

At Equine Podiatry Solutions LLC, we’ve developed our desmosphyrine to be applied topically to all four of the horse's hooves every 12 hours for 72 hours. The desmosphyrine helps alleviate the oxidative stress that results from the inflamed laminae. It’s best to have the desmosphyrine on hand so that application can begin at the first signs of acute laminitis.

Texas Trade Show

Our owner, Derrick Cooke, recently attended a trade show in Texas, where he spoke with farriers, veterinarians and horse owners about the benefits of desmosphyrine. Even if you own just one horse, you want it to remain healthy and happy for its entire life, no matter if it’s used for riding, ranch work, or another purpose. If acute laminitis sets in, the horse's overall well-being can quickly deteriorate.
