LAMINITIS IN HORSES AND THE IMPORTANCE OF EARLY DETECTION

Laminitis in horses is a very painful condition, commonly associated with endotoxin production. This can happen for example after carbohydrate overloading.

 

Research has shown that cardiac output, ventricular ejection rate, heart rate and arterial pressure increase significantly in laminitis associated with carbohydrate or grain overload. This could potentially be associated with myocardial damage due to toxins.

 

Laminitis can also come from sepsis, mostly after a mare has retained foetal membranes. That makes it very important to closely and thoroughly monitor a mare that has recently foaled, in order to early detect and treat the condition and lessen the horse’s suffering, as well as guarantee the proper nutrition of the foal.

 

Although venous return isn’t affected like it is in abdominal colic cases, the increased heart rate in laminitis could also be related to pain and serum L-lactate and electrolyte changes.

 

GET VITAL SIGNS MEASUREMENT IN 2 MINUTES

With the help of the Piavet Measuring Device, horse diseases can be detected even before their outbreak, laminitis being a common example.

 

This veterinary system, enables you to monitor horse’s vital signs continuously and in real time and possible deviations are also recognised with the sensor technology and Machine Learning. Particularly for Laminitis an early recognition is really important for recovery.

 

MONITOR YOUR PATIENTS ANYTIME & ANYWHERE

With the Piavet System you can track the activity of your horse and monitor a broad spectrum of horse vital signs aside of the heart rate, like the respiration rate or pattern, the pulse, or the horse’s body core temperature.

“I don’t want to stand next to the horse all the time because this may irritate the horse too. (With the remote monitoring) I can monitor the horse where I prefer and get real values as the horse is not disturbed by my presence.”

The first thing I do when I see my patients is put on the device to get a first look of how the horse is doing. It’s fun how easy and fast it responds!
