(Note: The advice here refers to ponies and horses suffering from endocrinopathic laminitis, causes by Obesity, Equine Metabolic Syndrome or Cushing’s disease only)
Find the cause - Unless the cause is obvious (e.g. the pony is very obese) your vet may take blood samples from your pony to confirm why the laminitis occurred. These may involve testing for resting insulin, performing an oral sugar test, and testing for Cushing’s Disease (PPID). Depending on the results, your vet may prescribe various medications and give other advice, which you must strictly follow.
