The Equine Veterinary Journal (EVJ) has made a collection of important research papers freely available online to both vets and horse owners to help fight the prevalent and devastating condition of laminitis. The papers include practical advice as well as the latest research. Professor Celia Marr, editor of EVJ, said: "In recent years, there has been an explosion of knowledge and new thinking about this devastating condition. We have also recognised that some of the old-fashioned remedies, such as standing in cold water, have sound science behind them. I hope that horse owners who are unfortunate enough to have come across laminitis will find this new online resource valuable."
