The term was lifted from the Virginia Polytechnic pony field study.
They called the IR ponies that had laminitis "decompensated"
(equivalent to G:I below 4.5) and the ones that were IR but not
laminitic "prelaminitic" (G:I between 4.5 and 10). I like compensated
(as opposed to decompensated) better than prelaminitic. Puts a more
positive slant on it!



If You plug your lab numbers into the IR calculator, you will see where he may fall.
