So what are the early subtle signs of Laminitis?

The following are worth having at the back of your mind, as the earlier we can spot the disease the better. If you have any questions give us a ring 01728 685123.

  • Shifting weight from foot to foot, often quite slowly and subtly.
  • A short choppy (‘duck flappy’) stride on hard surfaces, especially when turning.
  • Wanting to walk on the soft, avoiding gravel etc. May not want to walk or trot.
  • Warm/hot feet.
  • Pronounced digital pulses – watch a video of Helen showing where to find the digital pulse here
