Acute Laminitis Vitals


Is it common for resp & HR to be elevated in acute laminitis, or is this an indication that there is something else going on? I have been hands on with many chronic laminitis cases, but few of any in acute crisis. Other signs are there: shortened stride, shifting weight frequently, seeking soft ground, bounding DP (all 4 feet), hanging back from the herd, somewhat depressed. Gums are pink, hydration & gut sounds are good.
