Re: Acute laminitis


 

Barbara,
Grass hay (especially if grown during drought conditions) can be high in sugar which is dangerous for an IR horse. If you soak her bermuda hay you can reduce the sugar content. Soak for 30 minutes in hot water or 60 minutes in cold water. Do not reuse the water. place the hay into a hay net to soak. You can also rinse the soaked hay off after the soaking. I realize she is at a vet hospital but if there is some way to arrange to have her hay soaked it would be best. 

Here is a good link for you to use for more detailed info.
