Afternoon everyone, after using Bioflow tendon wraps on my horse that had a torn tendon with good results (no other explanation for her excellent healing) i am wondering if some kind of magnetic boots help Laminitis, has anyone tried this?

I really wasnt sure about trying the wraps with my horse but i thought there was nothing to lose by it.

We were just talking about this on the laminitis now abcess thread, it would appear it is used in the treatment of laminitis though Lemme thinks she remembers it shouldnt be used whilst symptoms are acute and should be more during the recovery period - think she was going to have a look and see what she could remember!!!

Quote from the post
" think I have read something about not using them until the lami is no longer active, in the recovery period afterwards, once again will google and see if I can find it - god the things that linger at the back of my mind......... def not to use if an abcess is suspected or present"

my mums minature has got tender feet, hav got her in off the grass and am trying to get a hold of a grazing muzzle, the paddock is really bare though so it may not be an option.

As i said i am using wraps on my IDx and she is getting on great, way ahead of what the vet expected as it was a serious tear she had. The magnetic wraps are the only thing that i imagine have helped her on her way, its quite amazing really

I used magnetic pads (under bandages but think they are meant for velcroing into rugs, they would be small enough for a mini) for my boy when he had concussive lami. Didn't use them for the first few days but once things had settled (digital pulse back to normal) then we used them. I also fed arnica so not sure which did the trick but he was back to full work in 6 weeks.

I was going to suggest magnetic pads too.

I got mine here;

They'd definitely be small enough, but it would be worth contacting the company to ask about potentially removing some of the magnets - not sure how many you'd want concentrated on one area. If you took them out at either end (the pads are oblong with rounded ends) you could stitch some velcro on and make little brushing boots that way!

And with ten pads, you'd still be able to do a full rug for a miniture too. ;)
