Will CBD hemp oil help laminitis?

Laminitis which is inflammation of the lamina of the hoof can affects all members of the equine family: horses, ponies, miniature horses, donkeys, and mules. The disease process involves a breakdown of the bond between the hoof wall and the coffin bone or the medical term distal phalanx.  If your horse has trouble walking, turning, shifting weight, or standing uncomfortably and not wanting to put weight on the front legs, you need to call your veterinarian immediately.  I recommend your veterinarian and farrier work together, after all, farriers are experts when it comes to your horses’ feet.  Radiographs are essential for assessing changes in the hooves and show the relationship between the hoof capsule and the internal structures of the foot (also known in the industry as “rotation”) to help your veterinarian and farrier determine the best course of action. 

Laminitis can be caused by a lot of different things.  The most common is improper diet, systemic illnesses, obesity, bad ground, or trimming the hooves to short.

Laminitis can be treated successfully if caught early. First the inflammation must be reduced.  Reviewing your horses’ diet with your veterinarian, make sure your horse is on clean-soft ground, hoof care supplements, and regular farrier care.

Laminitis used to be a death sentence for horses.  If caught early, supplements and new veterinary technology many horses are recovering to live a long, healthy, and productive life.
