Metabolic and obesity clinic

Our metabolic and obesity clinic identifies, treats and monitors horses and ponies with problems that make them prone to laminitis including equine metabolic syndrome and equine Cushing's disease.

The clinic is run by a team that has wide-ranging professional interests relating to laminitis, including orthopaedics, laminitic pain, obesity and endocrine disease. Many are involved in research studies with the University of Liverpool.

Clinic service

The initial care plan for horses attending the clinic takes place over three sessions. There is an initial assessment with diet and exercise planning, followed by two additional appointments to monitor progress.
