Candidates Needed for Laminitis Research Trial

Do you have a horse that is contending with ongoing laminitis? Is your horse prone to recurrent bouts of founder associated with pasture turnout or even metabolic problems? Are you frustrated and searching for solutions for easier management?

Nouvelle Veterinary Research, Inc. is conducting a laminitis research trial and is seeking equine candidates local to the North Carolina or surrounding area. Nouvelle Research’s primary focus over the past decade has been on the impact of uncontrolled inflammation and influence on health. Laminitis is just one of many equine diseases that is associated with uncontrolled inflammation and oxidative stress, which contributes heavily to laminar deterioration, pain and alteration of blood circulation to the digit.

Despite knowing these pathways exist, managing each patient through the same approach is not always rewarding, leaving many horses still suffering the daily effects. In reality, each patient is different. Inflammation is still an underlying contributor, but the degree and source of that inflammation can vary. This leaves us to determine variations and similarities between patients, to ideally arrive at better treatment options for long term support.

We are seeking initially 10 candidates for the laminitis research trial, in which we will explore many avenues to help us target and discriminate each patient. Services to be provided include examinations, digital radiographs, complete blood profiles, hormone evaluations and balanced trimming for each horse. Therapies will primarily focus on hoof balancing, nutrition and targeted dietary ingredients to target ongoing negative cellular pathways.

Together, we CAN make a difference for these horses!
