"LAMINITIS & CUSHING'S SUPPORT"
At Christmas 1999,
Oscar my horse of 11 years was diagnosed with early Cushings Syndrome.
Following investigations into the subject I realised that there was a
great lack of support for owners of such horses and so the Laminitis
& Cushings Support Group was founded. My aim was to develop
a network of owners of Cushingoid and Laminitic horses (which Oscar also
is) and to provide them with help, advice and much needed support. One
of the most important things to me was to give owners access to the very
latest research (conventional AND alternative) into both conditions and
to provide them with an accurate and above all positive approach
something significantly lacking.
Owners of newly diagnosed much loved horses often experience feelings of isolation and despair. The Laminitis & Cushing's Support group aims to help those owners come to terms with both diseases and improve the lives of their horses.
The organization also
publishes 2 very useful guides; the "Laminitis & Cushing's support
booklet" and the "Cushing's Pack" specifically for owners
of Cushingoid horses & ponies.
