This website contains all the information necessary for participation by veterinarians. Veterinarians, please consider registering to participate. Horse owners, please ask your veterinarian for more information.

Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

***Based on practitioner feedback, we have changed the study defintions. Any new case of laminitis that is evaluated within 4 weeks of the onset of clinical signs may be included in the study***

***Please note that cases will include ANY new case of laminitis that is NOT caused by sepsis, non-weight bearing, or excessive grain overload. We welcome cases that occur for unknown reasons, have had recent corticosteroid administration or pasture exposure, or a presumed or confirmed endocrinopathy.***
