The Laminitis Clinic is
the UK's only veterinary facility dedicated to the treatment of horses with hoof
problems. Most of our cases are suffering from laminitis, acute and chronic founder,
sinking syndrome and Cushing's disease. TLC was established in 1988 since when
hundreds of horses and ponies have been treated; most of which successfully, enabling
them to return to their previous work or use. Most of our cases are referred by
practicing veterinary surgeons. We provide a telephone advice line and an X-ray
reporting service whereby we provide advice on treatment options and prognosis.
Having reached this site
there is a good chance that your horse has laminitis. We are here to help you
to do your best for your horse and to achieve a speedy recovery. Laminitis is
an emergency condition and you should call your veterinary surgeon right away.
Time is of the essence in dealing successfully with laminitis. Delay or doing

Due to popular demand I
have been persuaded to publish my book "Explaining
Laminitis and its Prevention" on this website. Since first publication
in 1992 this book has sold over 12,000 copies, quite unusual for a private publication.
Horse and pony owners, farriers and veterinary surgeons have found it to be a
most useful handbook when trying to deal with laminitis. I hope you do too. Just
