Talk About Laminitis

Talk About Laminitis Scheme – Free ACTH Test!!

The vast majority of laminitis cases are caused by an underlying hormonal condition, either Cushing’s Disease (which is more accurately termed Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction – PPID) or Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS).

It is important to identify these underlying conditions to ensure horses and ponies can be managed appropriately to reduce the risk of painful episodes of laminitis.

Talk About Laminitis (TAL) is a disease awareness initiative supported by the British Horse Society, Redwings and World Horse Welfare which highlights the link between PPID, EMS and laminitis. It provides complimentary laboratory fees for the blood test to detect PPID (ACTH test).

To discuss with one of our vets or get your horse screened for this treatable condition; contact us today or for further information, visit the website www.talkaboutlaminitis.co.uk

Please note this offer does not apply to horses that have been previously diagnosed or are on treatment for PPID

*Laboratory fees only, visit and blood sampling charges still apply*
