TopSpec AntiLam is a palatable, pelleted product specifically designed to provide nutritional support for those susceptible to, being treated for, and recovering from, laminitis.
TopSpec AntiLam is a brilliant formulation combining several supplements with a high-fibre, very low-calorie carrier to make it palatable. Long-term trials at Middle Park Laminitis Research Unit have shown that horses and ponies on restricted/poor grazing do not gain any weight when fed TopSpec AntiLam. It can also be used very successfully as part of a calorie-controlled diet when weight loss is required.

I have a miniature horse with Laminitis almost constantly. Can you give me advise on which feed would be best for her.
The best food for a horse suffering from Laminitis is to feed them a high fibre diet. It is very important to keep an eye on their weight and condition as this is often a cause of laminitis. However this doesn't mean you feed too little, it's very important to feed a high fibrous diet with vitamins and minerals in. It is a good idea to check what feed value your hay has in it, you can get tests for this, Dodson & Horrell offer a foraging test. If your hay has a high feed value you can try soaking your hay for about 12 hours as this will bring the value down. Also you can try splitting hay and good quality oat straw, just be careful if your horse has any dental problems.
For a balanced diet alongside feeding fibre in your hay and say Dengie Hifi Lite you could feed a balancer. This is when Anitlam comes in as it will contain all the essential vitamins and minerals keeping a low calorie diet. Also I'd suggest you could try a MSM product. We sell an Equine America MSM this helps reduce inflammation caused by laminitis.
Also we'd advice to avoid putting out on lush and frosty grass.
