Re: Requesting advice about Fizzie's trim

Have you had his insulin and ACTH tested? The ACTH needs to be mid or low normal in a laminitic animal. He has lost about half of his RF coffin bone so don't expect him moving at much more than a walk but because he's small  there's hope. Trim definitely can use some work https://hoofrehab.com/Pete%20Ramey%20presentation%20%232-%20No%20Laminitis%20Conf.pdf but you also have to control his hormones. If insulin is high, consider ertugliflozin https://bmcvetres.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12917-019-1811-2
