Spillers is donating to The Laminitis Trust to help towards research into the debilitating condition.

Spillers Happy HoofThe feed company is donating 20p to the charity from every bag of Spillers Happy Hoof sold during April and May.
 
Clare Barfoot, research and development manager at Spillers, said: “Laminitis is a serious condition that can cause real heartache for an owner. Although research has advanced our knowledge of it, many aspects continue to elude us. Further research is needed, especially to understand why some horses and ponies are more susceptible than others if we are to reduce occurrences of the condition in the future.”
 
What is already known is that diet-related laminitis is the easiest to manage. The Laminitis Trust has approved low-starch, high-fibre feeds, such as Happy Hoof, as the safest choice for equines prone to laminitis. It’s also important to restrict access to grass and to provide regular exercise.
 
The Laminitis Trust, founded in 1998, is the only registered charity dedicated to supporting research into equine laminitis.

For advice on how owners can keep their horses or ponies safe from laminitis, telephone the Spillers careline 01908 226626, email careline@spillers-feeds.com or visit the Spillers website.
