This book provides a concise and useful guide for horse owners to take immediate and productive action against laminitis and keep it out of their horses’ lives once and for all.Nipping away at the edges of the [laminitis] plague, Natural Horse Care (NHC) continues to grow with adherents who want nothing more than what is good for their horses. So, the answer lies not in a drug-addicted world of ‘treating symptoms’ but in the holistic fold of equine health, wellness and vitality. There is no shortage of things that we all can and should do to support this end: more responsible horse ownership, good science, good research, safe feeds, safe drugs, and a revolutionary new vanguard of allied services that provide a path to the healthful vitality of the horse instead of the commonly used practices and products that tend to keep horses in a perpetual state of low-grade laminitis that can easily give way to an acute attack. But we’ll never see the end of it if we persist in the delusion that the current stream of ‘profits at all costs’ — the industrialization of laminitis — equates to the well-being of the horse. It doesn’t, and the intent of this book is to show why, while pointing to a good path to get ourselves and our horses on board.'Laminitis' lays out Jackson’s most current thinking and strategies for dealing with this insidious disease of the horse.
