The Pony that did not die - Laminitis Text Book
This is not just another text on laminitis - it may save your horse and reduce recovery time!
Written by Australia's leading expert in laminitis care. Andrew Bowe a Master Farrier & Equine Podiotherapist has spent many years rehabbing and researching this subject with his mentor Veterinary Professor Robert Bowker. This is a text that you should share with your veterinarian and farrier now!
This is 221 pages of up to date valueable information, photos, diagrams etc. perfect for any horse owner who has a laminitic horse, a sub clinically laminitic horse or a good doer (which are insulin resistant horses) prone to lamintis.
Full of scientific data but written so the horse owner can easily understand laminitis and its treatments. Plus lots of infomation on the ways you can prevent further attacks.
The book is based on research & rehabilitation work done at Mayfield Barehoofcare Centre with seriously laminitic horses and logs the methods used for their recovery. Andrew draws on his extensive knowlege gained from many years of work as a traditional Master farrier using the traditional methods of corrective shoeing, and later as an Equine Podiotherapist using the latest methods and rehabilitative barefoot trimming.
He explains in depth the new approach to laminitis and how it varies from traditional treatments with shoes and why it is now saving so many horses that tradtional hoof care has been unable to salvage.
Andrew wants to share his knowledge and asks that if you have a laminitic horse then to please show this book to your farrier and veterinarian if they are treating it traditionally with corrective shoeing as this information may change the outcome for your horse as it has already done for so many others that have passed through his care. He can be contacted at Mayfield Barehoofcare Centre if your vet or farrier would like to speak to him. www.barehoofcare.com
