Laminitic Recovery time with Cryotherapy

Farrier Led Research.

 

Does cryotherapy reduce recovery time in laminitic equines?

 

This study is looking for laminitic referrals – can you help?

 

Suitable candidates – A horse or pony that has suffered from an episode of laminitis in the previous 12 months, that was not associated with severe illness (I.e. sepsis, such as diarrhoea, colic requiring surgery) or severe lameness in another leg (such as fracture or a joint infection).

 

I would be very grateful if you passed my contact details to owners of potential candidates, where I can provide full study information to them.
