Tori & Floss
Thanks so much for your reply.
I have not had any bloods taken as yet but I will.
The trigger for her laminitis was a lush paddock full of clover. Tell tale signs of hardening crest and fatty lumps over her rump. Was not getting enough work.
I have been in contact with Carol Layton and Floss is on her Laminitis Mix along with a 500g Hygain Zero 2x a day. In that I also add, Salt, Vit E capsules, Linseed and MSM.
I will discontinue the MSM.
She also has 6kg of soaked Meadow Hay spread over 24hr period. The hay has been tested and is less 10% sugar and starch :-)
She has been on Gastro Coat as I am still giving her Bute. But this has been reduced to 6ml a day as Floss has turned a corner since taking her off the Lucerne Hay and incorporating Carol's supps and following your diet.
The Hawthorn Berry, White Willow Bark and Turmeric I purchased to replace the Bute. I have not started her on those herbs as yet as they haven't arrived in the mail.
Do you think I should get the Jiagoulan as well??
I weigh her with a tape every week and at this stage she is averaging 6kg a week. She has lost 30kgs so far.
Floss is not on any grass at all atm. She is stabled with an adjoining yard of rubber.
I have found a fantastic barefoot trimmer and am happy with her work and she is visiting regularly and micro-managing Floss's feet. The boots have really helped but I was very happy to have all her shoes pulled off and treat her barefoot.
She is not well enough at this stage for any exercise and I will be walking her in hand and not do any circles once she is ready.
My original question was how long before she can go out onto a dry paddock? Does it depend on her bloods?
Thanks so much for your help.
