Glushu help for Laminitis.
Laminitis is a life threatening, extremely painful condition of the hooves. This can cause mild to severe lameness, particularly the front hooves, even death. With inflammation and deterioration of the laminae, it can cause heat and pain in the hoof capsule and the coronet band, in severe cases the coffin/pedal bone will detach from the hoof wall, rotating, sinking and can penetrate the sole of the hoof. Immediate action needs to be taken to give support to the coffin bone and prevent rotation/sinking.
We urge you to read this article on laminitis from American Farriers Journal.
The pain of laminitis is often underestimated and it’s essential to make the horse or pony comfortable quickly, while they’re being treated.
Glushu provides the farrier with an amazing tool to get the foot off the ground and add modifications providing support and shock absorption without the extra trauma of hammering and nailing.
Maintaining good circulation and exercise is essential to help horses through laminitis.
Glushu provides hoof support, shock absorption and cushion so that your horse can continue to be turned out in comfort during a laminitic episode. Being stable bound has been proven to exacerbate laminitis due to weight gain and lack of exercise.
For horses who need a bit of extra support we have Glushu inserts.
