Images showing 2 horses with laminitis
This horse was seen by the vet after behavioral problems and some swelling under saddle. He was diagnosed with fibrous tissue and prescribed physiotherapy. Thermal imaging revealed inflammation near to the spine and after a back scan it was found that this horse had a spur on one rib which was quite painful and had to be removed by surgey. The horse has recovered well.
