Evidence-based laminitis research audio file summarizes equine digital pulse and hoof wall temperature data

laminitis research equine digital pulse and hoof wall temperature

Have a quick listen to the newest RCVS Knowledge summary of EBVM-related laminitis research.

Student Honoria Brown from the University of Cambridge Vet School in England compiled what little research data has been published to date on the timing of increased digital pulse and hoof wall temperature in the days/hours preceding the onset of laminitis.

The audio summary, which has excellent audio quality, will only take you three minutes; just click the bright green "play" icon below to start listening.

Honoria talks you through what has been documented about digital pulses and hoof wall temperature in relation to the onset of laminitis in this audio clip:

The full 17-page Open Access report summary is scheduled to be listed and linked in the next edition of HoofSearch, the index of peer-review articles, proceedings, theses and patent on hoof and lameness-related research for the horse.

The report was awarded second place in the RCVS student research competition. First place went to  Molly Vasanthakumar of the University of Edinburgh for her research summary, "Reducing veterinary waste: surgical site infection risk and the ecological impact of woven and disposable drapes".
