Case Study 1

Formula4 Feet

1. This pony mare is 16 years old with a history of bad feet since she was 5 years old. She is also 3 months in foal and rather thin.

2.

When referred to the Laminitis Clinic she was examined and found to be too lean having been dieted in an attempt to prevent laminitis. However, her laminitis was not due to her diet. She was put onto an appropriate diet developed at the Laminitis Clinic, supplemented with Formula4 Feet.

3. Despite a ribby appearance she shows swellings above the eyes, which are fat deposits characteristic of certain conditions.

4. She has now put on some weight and is the ideal Condition Score 2½ to 3. Her hoof horn quality has improved and she is much more comfortable on her feet. Her coat is no longer dull and dry but has a lustrous shine.

5. Recently, she gave birth to a lovely, correct filly foal.

6. Which is now quickly catching up with Mum.
