To date the Laminitis Trust has provided over £540,665 for ground breaking research into equine laminitis.
We are currently funding projects which are investigating the causes of insulin resistance and Cushing’s Disease. The results of all Laminitis Trust funded research is published for all to see: the work continues.
Robert Eustace FRCVS, Director of the Laminitis Trust writes;
“We are very grateful to all who have made legacies and donations to the Laminitis Trust. Additionally we recognise the efforts of those feed companies, whose responsible attitude to horse nutrition, has enabled the Laminitis Trust Feed Approval Mark to become the "gold standard" for safe horse feeds. Lastly, without the support of their customers who buy Laminitis Trust Approved Feeds for their animals, the Trust would not have been able to provide these substantial research grants”.
Only feeds which carry this logo are approved by the Laminitis Trust which is the only body with an independent scrutineering system for horse feeds. If your feed does not carry this logo it is not approved by the Laminitis Trust.
