Miko: Chronic laminitis


Miko suffered acute laminitis some years ago and now suffers from chronic laminitis and flare ups.  In February 2014, he had a bad flare up and this time was caused by the very hard ground.  So the owner got him shod with pads, but it did not help so he was put on stall rest for two weeks which caused hind end stiffness.  When his front feet were improved a bit, the owner  let him go out in a small turnout. He regressed! He was on 1 gram bute 2x daily
