Pasture Associated Laminitis Prevention Strategies
Paul D. Siciliano, PhD
Shannon Pratt Phillips, PhD
North Carolina State University
March 25, 2014 :: 7 PM ET

Excess pasture consumption is often cited as a factor associated with the precipitation of laminitis, a devastating disease affecting horses feet. However the relationship between pasture consumption and laminitis does not appear to be similar among all horses, i.e. some horses appear to be more at risk for developing laminitis while grazing pasture than others. In this webinar the relationship between pasture consumption, horse-type and laminitis will be discussed in the context of strategies aimed at preventing pasture-associated laminitis. Learn more.

Dr. Krishona MartinsonDr. Paul Siciliano is Professor in the Department of Animal Science at North Carolina State University where he teaches courses in equine management and conducts research in equine nutrition.
