Talk about Laminitis June -Oct 2017
Great news the Talk About Laminitis (TAL) disease awareness initiative is running again this year, between 1st June and 31st October 2017.
This gives the opportunity to have a free ACTH laboratory test to horse owners who are concerned about PPID (Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction or Cushing’s disease) in their horses and ponies.
The TAL scheme was launched in 2012 to raise awareness of the previously under-recognised link between PPID and laminitis. Since then, the scheme has facilitated ACTH tests in over 45,000 horses and ponies helping to rule PPID in or out of individual laminitis cases.
This disease awareness is supported by Redwings, the British Horse Society and World Horse Welfare.
