Thank you, but the CARE study is now closed for submissions.
In the unfortunate event that your horse or pony develops an active episode of laminitis at any time throughout the study period, please complete the owner Laminitis Reporting Form (LRF) as soon as possible after recognition or diagnosis of laminitis is made. The LRF is a quick checklist of clinical signs associated with laminitis. Please complete this form even if the laminitis has not been diagnosed by a vet.
Please indicate if any of the clinical signs were present in your horse/pony during this laminitis episode, as well as any additional factors which may have helped to confirm laminitis. Input from your vet or hoof care provider, if they were present at the time, would be helpful.
It might be useful to keep a printed copy of this form at your yard while you are participating in the study.
A completed Owner LRF should be submitted when your horse/pony has a new, active episode of laminitis.
? Unsure what we mean by a new, active episode of laminitis? See below…
What is laminitis?
A disease which causes damage to the lamellar region of the horse’s foot. For more information, click here.
What is a new episode?
The recognition of active laminitis for the first time OR after your horse/pony returned to its previous/normal level of soundness and activity following a previous episode, without receiving pain medication (such as bute) for 14 days or more.
What is an active episode?
The recognition of pain in one/more feet due to the disease, with stance and/or gait abnormalities.
Do I need to submit more than one LRF?
A LRF should be submitted for each new episode of active laminitis identified, but only one form is required per episode.
