Equine Metabolic Syndrome: Watch Your Horse's Weight -- Nancy Jaffer with Dr. Ray Geor

Equine Metabolic Syndrome: Watch Your Horse's Weight -- Nancy Jaffer with Dr. Ray Geor | Delmarva Hay and Feed | Scoop.it

The first obvious evidence of Equine Metabolic Syndrome likely is weight gain. But the dangers of this condition go far beyond pudginess. The animal with EMS is at risk for laminitis (also known as founder), which disrupts blood flow to the laminae structures in the hoof that secure the coffin bone. When laminitis strikes, the bone can rotate and in severe cases, penetrate the sole.


@Laminitis writes: Journalist Nancy Jaffer features Dr Ray Geor, a researcher who has specialized in the problem of Equine Metabolic Syndrome in horses, which often includes bouts of laminitis. Dr. Geor will speak at Rutgers University in New Jersey this week.
