LAMINITIS and Related Conditions

Concise Guide to Laminitis in the Horse
by David W. Ramey DVM
Softcover, 2003, Trafalgar Square, 112 pages, illustrated, indexed
I keep thinking I know the horse on the cover of this book. It is almost ten years old, true, but the author believes in evidence-based medicine and that moves forward slowly. Common sense explanations of the cause and mechanism of the disease and on the effect of specific medications. Chapters by Pollitt, Johnson, Messer, O'Grady and King, and one with Moyer. This is a new, unsold copy. Last one, half price $7.50 plus post.

Explaining Laminitis and Its Prevention
by Robert A. Eustace MRCVS
Softcover, 1992, 71 pages, illustrations and photos, new
The last copy! Still one of the best books for explaining the heart bar shoe and the adjustable heart bar, in particular. From Great Britain's Laminitis Clinic director and researcher, Dr Eustace. Possibly the most comprehensive book on laminitis. A must for the serious student of the disease. Twenty years late, I still check this book. You will too. Sells for ridiculous amounts on the web. $29 plus post.
