In the U. S. alone, over one million horses suffer from laminitis annually. The pain and distress of an acutely laminitic horse is a very difficult thing to witness. When you care about your horse every hour seems like an eternity.
Equine Cushing's Disease
Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction (PPID)
Once thought to be a death sentence, horses with Equine Cushing's disease/PPID can live long, healthy, and useful lives.
Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS)
Insulin Resistance (IR)
Insulin Resistance can arise in response to other disorders, diseases or challenges, but in non-PPID horses the vast majority of EMS horses are not "diseased".
Reports From the FieldDr. Kellon and ECIR helped my beloved Arab recover from laminitis in 2003, and remain sound and healthy ever since. Thank you!
