Gilhooly also stated:

"Vascular damage during laminitis may decrease NO concentrations, rendering the vessels more responsive to NTG-induced vasodilation. Therefore, our results do not necessarily predict a negative vasodilatory effect of NTG in horses
with laminitis. In fact, in a study using grass-induced laminitis in ponies, Hinckley et al. demonstrated alleviation of bounding digital pulses and improvement of lameness with administration of topical NTG."
