Shedding light on laminitisShedding light on laminitis

A new awareness day has been launched to help find out the frequency of laminitis in Britain, as well as possible prevention methods. Horse owners are being asked to share data about this debilitating condition as part of National CARE Month (10 February).

The CARE study is being carried out at the Animal Health Trust and Royal Veterinary College. To date, it is the largest web-based project of its kind. So far, it has 1,500 members who are asked to submit regular information about their horse or pony's health and management.

A further 1,000 members are needed for the study. Participation is open to all types, ages, sizes and breeds of horse or pony, whether they have had laminitis or not. See www.careaboutlaminitis.org.uk for more information.
