Date: Wednesday 17th April 2024 7.45pm via Zoom
Talk by Professor Andy Durham BSc BVSc CertEP DEIM DipECEIM MRCVS
RCVS and European Specialist in Equine Internal Medicine.
Andy qualified from the University of Bristol in 1988 and worked initially in the Midlands where he gained a postgraduate qualification in Equine Practice before coming to Liphook in 1994. After a brief period away in Sussex, he returned to Liphook in 1999 and became a partner in 2001. He gained the RCVS Diploma of Equine Internal Medicine in 2003 and the Diploma of the European College of Equine Internal Medicine the following year.
Understanding the cause of laminitis has taken a great leap forward over the last 15 years with much research establishing the crucial role of hyperinsulinaemia (Hyperinulinaemia-Associated Laminitis, HAL). Recommended preventative approaches have generally comprised dietary restriction and encouragement of more exercise but have been plagued by poor compliance and subsequent failure, resulting in the all too common scenario of repeated bouts of laminitis. This presentation will explain how improved compliance and greater success can be achieved by understanding and focussing on the specific key target: post-prandial hyperinsulinaemia. A logical and practical approach will be explained.
