Question
hello sir, what treatment would you give for horses suffering from laminitis?

Answer
HELLO ROHIT...THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTION...

This question could take 3 pages of details to explain procedures and what shoes can be used.

Also...IF it's acute or chronic ??

I would suggest visiting with a veterinarian, because IT IS a veterinary issue first, and then
a qualified farrier Must come in and apply the right prosthetic to maintain the horse.

I have my "style" and have been very successful for over 35 yrs. But again, it depends on
alot of variables !!

Thanks again for your question !!
