Hoof Pack is very easy to make. Simply add organic apple cider vinegar to the clay/herb blend and make a mash. Apply the mash to the hoof and wrap with "vet wrap" or gauze. Clay pack will last for 3-4 days as long as horse is not in constant muddy or wet conditions.
Laminitis results from the disruption (constant, intermittent, or short-term) of blood flow to the sensitive and insensitive laminae. These laminae structures within the foot secure the coffin bone (the wedge-shaped bone within the foot) to the hoof wall. Inflammation often permanently weakens the laminae and interferes with the wall/bone bond. In severe cases, the bone and the hoof wall can separate. In these situations, the coffin bone may rotate within the foot, be displaced downward ("sink") and eventually penetrate the sole. Laminitis can affect one or all feet, but it is most often seen in the front feet concurrently.
The terms "laminitis" and "founder" are used interchangeably. However, founder usually refers to a chronic (long-term) condition associated with rotation of the coffin bone. Whereas, acute laminitis refers to symptoms associated with a sudden initial attack, including pain and inflammation of the laminae.
Signs of acute laminitis include the following: lameness, especially when a horse is turning in circles, heat in the feet, increased digital pulse in the feet, pain in the toe region when pressure is applied with hoof testers, reluctant or hesitant gait ("walking on eggshells") , a"sawhorse stance," with the front feet stretched out in front to alleviate pressure on the toes and the hind feet "camped out" or positioned further back than normal to bear more weight. Signs of chronic laminitis may include the following: rings in hoof wall that become wider as they are followed from toe to heel, bruised soles or "stone bruises", widened white line, commonly called "seedy toe," with occurrence of seromas (blood pockets) and/or abscesses, dropped soles or flat feet, thick, "cresty" neck, dished hooves, which are the result of unequal rates of hoof growth (The heels grow at a faster rate than the rest of the hoof, resulting in an "Aladdin-slipper" appearance.)
