I first met Dr. Van Eps at the 2019 NAEP Syposium in Saratoga Springs, NY. He was an engaging and interesting speaker, and I cornered him after one of his sessions (as one does when they find someone interesting?) and asked him to be on the podcast. He agreed, and we chatted in November 2019 about causes and treatments of laminitis.
I had to the chance to attend the 2023 NAEP Conference just a few weeks ago, and Dr. Van Eps spoke again. I was blown away by all the updated research on laminitis even in just the last 4 years. While we had hypotheses on a lot of causes and treatments for laminitis in 2019, studies confirmed a lot of what we knew – and also some things we didn’t know – about what is going on at the cellular level during laminitic events. Of course, for a second time, I cornered Dr. Van Eps and asked him to chat with me again for the podcast .. that episode won’t be publishing for another few weeks, but in the meantime, check out our 2019 conversation to brush up on the three main causes and treatments for laminitis. This information is always good to review, especially when owning horses!
