This lecture will provide an update on endocrinopathic laminitis, which is the commonest form of laminitis in the UK and includes laminitis associated with the two hormone related disorders equine metabolic syndrome (EMS) and pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID; equine Cushing’s disease). It will include an overview of how these two disorders cause laminitis, how animals at an increased risk of endocrinopathic laminitis can be identified and what treatment options are available.
