Laminil is an injectable drug developed to halt the inflammatory response and laminitis cascade of acute laminitis and active chronic laminitis.
Laminil is designed to inhibit inflammatory mediators and other chemicals from being released from the mast cell in excess. When the inflammatory mediators are not released in excess, then the laminitis cascade is broken/halted. This allows the horse to start healing, though healing may take time.
Laminil is an investigational drug going through the FDA approval process. It is being tested around the world at major veterinary clinics.
Laminil has shown promise with all types of laminitis, such as insulin resistance, equine metabolic syndrome, grain overload, grass founder, trauma and single limb laminitis.
Laminil is a prescribed injectable drug administered by veterinarians via limb perfusion.
