Re: Laminitis? Interpretation of X-rays

Hi Laura,
I'm no expert but active laminitis is always associated with significant digital pulses.  Does he have those?  You can feel the pulses with pads of fingers (not thumbs) on the back side of the pastern, at about 30 degrees around/away from a the center of the back of his pastern.

By Dr Kellon's interpretation of the xrays she didn't see laminitis - the sinking is from old laminitis or other old causes  - ie it "hasn't changed in years".

Could someone please take a look at the x-rays of 8/21/12? Do you see laminitis?
