Re: adding AAKG and ALCAR for laminitic mini?

Lavinia Fiscaletti

Hi Erin,

Sorry your little girl is having issues. How much hay, by weight, is she consuming per day? How much exercise is she getting? Why is she on CTB? Any green stuff she can get to in the drylot? Pix of her, and esp her feet, would be helpful - can add those the ECH8 Photo section. Posting a case history now (can amend it later as needed) would be helpful.

Unfortunately, the hardest part of keeping a mini healthy is somehow managing to get them enough exercise to keep their weight down and their metabolism revved.

AlCar probably wouldn't hurt as it can have an insulin-sensitizing effect. AAKG not appropriate while she is actively laminitc.

Cold (ice/hosing) while sore and pulses are elevated is helpful.
