LAMINITIS LIFTER 1KG
Chronic laminitis can be a very difficult disease to treat, however, by using natural treatments, the success rate may increase significantly.
Natural medicine provides another toolbox of treatments to help treat chronic cases of laminitis. Several of the major factors in helping a laminitis horse are to support their feet properly, correct the intestinal health, provide nutritional medicine to prevent and reverse damage to the lamina, and to return the horse’s metabolism to proper balance. When managed correctly, with patience and attention to detail, most chronic cases can return to reasonable work. The poorly responsive cases can often be managed and kept relatively comfortable without the use of drugs.
Horses with laminitis are often in extreme amounts of pain. Consequently high doses of non-steroidal anti inflammatories (NSAIDs) are used over long periods of time. Research has been done regularly on NSAIDs effects and toxicity in the horse as well as in humans. One recent equine study showed inflamed small and large intestinal walls after 12 days of phenylbutazone administration.
Since high doses of the NSAIDs are detrimental to the integrity of the intestinal wall the drugs may contribute to a leakage of bacteria across the wall that triggers part of the breakdown of the laminae. Consequently, the use of NSAIDs in treating laminitis should be questioned. Clinically, the removal of the NSAIDs is one of the most important aspects of the success of the holistic treatment. When a horse feels better with natural medicine it is because they are better, not because the pain is masked.
