Laminitis is a complex and painful condition that affects the hooves of horses. It is caused by the disruption of blood flow to the sensitive tissues (laminae) that attach the hoof wall to the coffin bone inside the hoof. This can lead to a breakdown of the laminae, which in turn can cause the coffin bone to rotate or sink within the hoof.
There are several factors that can contribute to the development of laminitis, including:
Regardless of the cause, the pain and discomfort experienced by horses with laminitis can be excruciating. The inflammation and damage to the laminae can make it difficult for horses to stand or move, and in severe cases, it can even be life-threatening.
That’s why it’s crucial to take prompt and effective action to manage and treat laminitis. With FormaHoof, you can give your horse the protection and support they need to recover from this debilitating condition.
FormaHoof is a non-invasive, flexible, and easy hoof care system designed to provide support and protection to the damaged hoof structures of horses with laminitis. The system encapsulates the damaged hoof and creates a custom-made, cushioned layer between the sole and the shoe or the ground, reducing pressure and pain on the sensitive internal structures of the hoof.
The cushioning and support provided by FormaHoof can help improve the horse’s ability to move, reducing the overall stress levels, and resulting in faster recovery. Moreover, unlike traditional methods that require drug intervention, FormaHoof provides drug-free pain relief, making it a safe and effective treatment option for horses with laminitis.
FormaHoof is a flexible and supportive laminitis treatment that can be customized to fit the specific needs of a horse with laminitis during rehabilitation. Unlike traditional methods that often require stall rest, FormaHoof can provide mobility and support for the damaged hoof structures, allowing the horse to move more freely and maintain muscle mass.
This not only improves the horse’s overall well-being but also speeds up the rehabilitation process. By giving horses their mobility back, FormaHoof can aid faster recovery from laminitis and get horses back to their regular routines.
FormaHoof supports better rehabilitation by encapsulating the damaged hoof, protecting, and supporting the sensitive internal structures. This prevents further deterioration and immediately reduces pain, improving the horse’s ability to move and reducing overall stress levels. Additionally, by allowing for mobility during rehab, FormaHoof can help prevent muscle atrophy and other complications that can arise from extended stall rest.
Using FormaHoof can also reduce overall treatment costs by avoiding the need for expensive, invasive procedures like surgery. And because FormaHoof supports a natural barefoot transition, it eliminates the ongoing cost of horseshoes and reduces the risk of reinjury or further complications.
