Managing horses nutritionally with laminitis can be quite tricky. Here are some points to remember when doing so.
00:12 Always base the diet on forages (pastures or hay).
00:16 Feed forages with less than 12% non-structural carbohydrates (NSC).
01:09 If your horse is very sensitive or you have hay with a higher level of NSC soaking the hay will reduce the amount of NSC in the hay making it safer to feed.
02:28 Don't allow horses with active laminitis to graze.
03:15 If grazing is to be provided, only graze in the very early hours of the morning. Have horse's off pasture by 2 hours after sunrise in high risk periods.
04:21 Use a grazing muzzle to reduce pasture intake.
05:27 It is important to feed a balanced diet. Use a low dose rate vitamin and mineral supplement to meet vitamin and mineral requirements
5:45 Use low NSC, grain free feeds/ingredients where additional calories are required (for example Pryde's EasiSport and Pryde's EasiFibre).
