After never worrying about our ponies out at grass, suddenly I got caught out by the rush in grass growth late in the season. The ponies started to show signs of laminitis, although never having symptoms before and with me not really knowing what to do !. Having used Hippo Health products previously (Sol) you were the company that I immediately turned to. Such a relief to be able to use this product which is so easy to apply (via a tasty carrot !) and can now safely turn them out knowing that everything is under control. I will use this product in future as well as monitoring grass intake but the Laminitis Prevention Aid was a godsend at a very stressful time. Thank you !

Hippo Laminitis Prevention Aid
I have been using the Laminitis Prevention Aid for a month with Miniature Horses. Because I have 12 horses in the paddock I put three capfuls every 3 days in a self refilling stock trough.
All was going really well with no founder, even in horses with chronic founder problems, until a few days ago when two of the horses presented with full on founder. I have taken them out and giving it to them direct via syringe., but I am not seeing much more of an improvement than I would normally see after taking them off grass.
So far the others are ok so even though my anser to recommending this prouct it a yes it is with hesitation.
All Hippo Health products rock
Haven't used the laminitis product yet as I've been banned handling my horses until I'm well enough. Which should be first week of January.
