Robin Hood: Successful management of Equine Metabolic Syndrome


This is Robin Hood, a 15 year old Shetland, who had been suffering with laminitis for over a year. Robin was diagnosed with Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) by Jonathan Garratt, one of our equine vets. EMS is a condition which alters the way that horses regulate sugars in their bodies. Robin’s condition has been successfully managed with treatment to help him regulate his blood sugar, and remedial farriery by James Clowes. The greatest factor, however, in Robin’s success story has been the dedication of his owner, Sam. She has spent months carrying out a strict exercise programme and monitoring his diet to the nearest calorie. Robin is a great example of how vets, farriers and owners can come together to manage difficult conditions such as EMS.
