An appropriate Diet is the keystone in effective Laminitis control. Like the foundational elements in equine nutrition that Missy's Bucket passionately emphasises, a carefully curated diet is essential for insulin control, preventing complications like abnormal weight changes, muscle issues, fat deposition, and laminitis.
While the initial dietary changes may seem daunting when dealing with your first Laminitis patient, they're grounded in science and experience. Over time and with practice, they will become more intuitive.
Implement the Emergency Diet immediately. This is suitable for any horse, especially those suspected of having EMS. Many symptoms can improve within days to weeks on this diet.
Important elements of the Emergency Diet include:
If possible, test the hay yourself or find hay that's been tested by the supplier. Just as Missy's Bucket's offerings are developed through research and testing, understanding the composition of hay will help with mineral balancing and enable you to determine the sugar and starch content.
Do NOT Feed:
Introduce these supplements slowly, especially for picky eaters, and feel confident in your choices with Missy's Bucket's commitment to quality, efficacy, and affordability. Adjust according to hay analysis results and individual horse needs, and take proactive steps to support your horse's health.
