New aspects of laminitis in horses

, : New aspects of laminitis in horses. Tieraerztliche Umschau 52(4): 190-194

The corium in the region of the wall and of the bars have the same structure. It is assumed that the load carrying ability per unit area is the same. The traction load from the weight of the horse is equally distributed when the pedal bone is parallel to the ground. This holds if the heels and the hind part of the frog are at the same level. The higher the heels, the steeper the pedal bone, the greater the overload on the dorsal part of the lamina and this predisposes to laminitis. When metabolic disturbance or a further load is added then laminitis occurs and rotation of the pedal bone follows. Laminitis can be prevented if the parallel position of the pedal bone is maintained.
