Laminitis Rehabilitation: A Case Study

December 2017 by Sally & Dennis Cherry, Ironbark Barehoof Trimming, www.ironbarkbarehooftrimming.com.au

“Horses and ponies with serious laminitis are routinely euthanased because the disease has traditionally been considered incurable. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Laminitic horses can be healed.”

This is a statement from the book ‘The Pony That Did Not Die: Healing Laminitis with Barehoof Rehab’ by Nicky and Andrew Bowe of Mayfield Barehoof Rehabilitation Centre. 

Thanks to huge advancements made in the last two decades in the understanding of the functional anatomy of the equine hoof, and to the expansion of barehoof trimming techniques and understanding, the number of successful rehabilitations continues to grow.
