Over the last 15 years, venograms have been the only additional information, besides the standard radiograph, to evaluate the circulation of the foot of horses with laminitis. Today, with the availability of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, much more information is becoming available to help evaluate circulation in feet, but it has had no significant effect on improving treatment as yet. In the mid-1990s a farrier named Gene Ovnicek developed a shoe to treat laminitis that incorporated the use of rails on the medial and lateral side of the shoe.

3). These are the growth zones of the proximal hoof wall (Fig. 4). Distal to this the PI values of more distal lamellae were lower. 05) than the proximal lamellar growth zone. Evidence for a constant supply of new cells in the lamellar region, generating a downward laminar flow, was not provided by this study. The few proliferating cells detected in the main lamellar region had a patchy distribution and were located at the PEL tips, not in cap-horn arcades. A 20-fold PI decrease between proximal and more distal lamellae suggests that most of the normal lamellae are nonproliferative and their main function is to suspend the distal phalanx within the hoof capsule.

Insurance companies became interested in this treatment and decided that it might save horses with severe laminitis, and therefore prevent having to pay claims for horses euthanized because of laminitis. The insurance industry held a big free meeting in Lexington, Kentucky in 1985, inviting speakers to promote this radical new procedure. This was the start of Dr Ric Redden’s annual Bluegrass Laminitis Symposium. The problem with promoting this procedure among farriers and veterinarians was that it was designed for only the most severe cases, and resulted in ponies with 23 24 Walsh mild laminitis being shod with heartbar shoes and having dorsal hoof wall resections.
