Actually, to be very specific, Founder is laminitus at its advanced stage.
Founder IS laminitus...but laminitus may or may not be founder ;) Founder implies rotation from laminitus.
However in my area, everything is founder. There is no differentiation in the local populace...even vets will use improper terminology to communicate with local folk.
