In this episode, Dr. Andrew Van Eps delves into new research on laminitis and founder treatment, as well as the importance of prevention. In it, you will hear about the three causes of laminitis, and research into how to approach each cause. Prevention is better than "damage control," and implementing some changes in your horse's diet and lifestyle can make all the difference!
