Laminitis Recovery

Ruby is a twenty + year old welsh section A.

Prior to the EP involvement, Ruby had an acute bout of laminitis after a series of vaccinations.  The laminitis was diagnosed by a vet, but proved hard to control under her existing management and she went on to have more bouts of laminitis and also several abscesses.

The EP took over the case in May 2021 and found that Ruby was over weight, lymphatic with a large crest and puffy eyes.  She was tested for PPID and EMS which came back negative.

She was put onto a 2-3 week trim cycle as her feet were growing very fast.  The owner removed her from grass until her pulses and weight came down. She was introduced her to a track with grass /hay at a ration that allowed her to lose weight.  She was given a supplement to help liver and kidneys (Ron Fields Remount) and the lymph, weight, crest and puffy eyes reduced.

Ruby has not had a bout of laminitis since and is now (2024) sound over all terrains.  She even flies up and down the stony track to the field. She is on a 6 week trim cycle now and has since 2021.  Her weight, pulses, crest, comfort and movement are closely monitored  at every visit.  If any of these symptoms increase, the amount of Remount is increased for a couple of weeks. The success of Ruby’s recovering is largely due to monitoring any minor symptoms that reappear and adjusting her diet and management accordingly. Ruby has a very dedicated owner and we work together to keep Ruby happy and healthy.
