Get The Dengie Low Down On Laminitis

With spring grass round the corner many owners will be faced with the worry of laminitis, which can be a real risk for all types of horses and ponies. One of the most important preventative measures is to limit access to grazing through the use of strip grazing, weight watcher paddocks or grazing muzzles.

However it is important not to starve these animals as adequate fibre will aid normal gut function and keep them occupied. Look for a high fibre but low sugar and starch feed, such as Dengie Hi Fi Lite, which is approved by The Laminitis Trust. Alfalfa based feeds have the advantage of providing good quality protein and alfalfa has been proven to improve both hoof quality and growth. Remember to ensure that your horse or pony is still provided with adequate nutrients by adding a vitamin and mineral supplement such as Dengie Optimum or Farrier's Formula.

Dengie announce continued support of The Laminitis Trust. Last year Dengie raised £1500 toward research. Money was raised by the sales team selling samples of the Dengie range at the shows attended.

Robert Eustace, Director of The Laminitis Clinic in Wiltshire and founder of The Laminitis Trust, Registered Charity No:1049266, says: "The Laminitis Trust was founded in 1999 to raise funds for vital research into this crippling disease which causes such misery to horses, ponies and even donkeys.

Sadly a cure continues to elude the scientists, but we remain committed to continuing the fundraising drive towards a dedicated research project. We much appreciate Dengie's ongoing support in this regard."
