For horses, laminitis is the second biggest killer after colic and when it strikes it can be heart-breaking for both horse and owner; sadly, euthanasia can often be the only responsible option. This book was written with the aim of promoting a better understanding of laminitis and its cause, so that the prevalence may be reduced, and even prevented. Beginning with a detailed explanation of laminitis, the book details thoroughly the anatomy of the foot, medical therapies, clinical signs and symptoms, therapeutic shoeing, and concludes with a view on the prognosis and future directions.
