Dr. Alicia Nolfi discusses laminitis treatment and the reasoning behind various treatments that are used for laminitic horses. She also talks about the importance of taking note of hoof health and laminae health as part of preventive care for the horse, and not simply reacting in triage. Dr. Nolfi discusses radiographs, venograms, mechanics, and the leading cause of laminitis: metabolic issues.
