Vet Essentials
PRLog - July 14, 2014 - INGATESTONE, U.K. -- Animal welfare charity, Remus Horse Sanctuary, will be participating in a new television documentary later this month following the research and meticulous management strategy implemented by its founder, Sue Burton, over the last four years effectively eradicating Laminitis from its yard.

Laminitis and PPID are diseases every horse owner should know about, and the new dedicated veterinary documentary series ‘Vet Essentials’ will take an in-depth look at these conditions.  The series will premiere on Horse & Country TV (Sky 280 and online with H&C TV Everywhere) commencing Wednesday 23 July at 9pm.  Equine Cushing’s disease (also known as PPID) is one of the most common problems affecting the endocrine (hormonal) system of horses and ponies.  PPID and Colic will feature in subsequent programmes on 30 July and 6 August respectively.

Remus is delighted to be included within the television series following its extensive work in conjunction with Liphook Equine Hospital and Boehringer Ingelheim, into identifying and treating the cause of Laminitis and therefore dramatically reducing the number of incidents at the Sanctuary.  The Sanctuary’s work into Laminitis also featured in the June 2014 issue of Horse Magazine.

“Laminitis was a huge concern to us, no matter what we did, we couldn’t stop it,” says Sue Burton, who set up the Sanctuary in 1983.  “The turning point for the charity was the introduction of blood tests which can detect Cushing’s disease – now known as pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction, or PPID – and equine metabolic syndrome (EMS).  As a result of determining which of these two problems was causing the Laminitis we have been able to treat the problem with appropriate medication and sound management practice and we have virtually eradicated the incidents of laminitis on our yard.”
