In the U. S. alone, over one million horses suffer from laminitis annually. The pain and distress of an acutely laminitic horse is a very difficult thing to witness. When you care about your horse every hour seems like an eternity.
Equine Cushing's Disease
Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction (PPID)
Once thought to be a death sentence, horses with Equine Cushing's disease/PPID can live long, healthy, and useful lives.
Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS)
Insulin Resistance (IR)
Insulin Resistance can arise in response to other disorders, diseases or challenges, but in non-PPID horses the vast majority of EMS horses are not "diseased".
