Welcome to the forum, you will find a lot of people with experience in dealing with this problem, you've come to the right place. Laminitis in a pony takes a multifactorial approach for treatment. There is no cure for laminitis. Do a little research on equine metabolic syndrome, there is a lot of good info here on the forum. Also I strongly recommend that you get a good farrier with LOTS of experience treating laminitis as they are key in recovery as well. Make sure your vet and farrier are working together as they both will play an important role in getting your horse the help he needs. ***Most importantly*** you do not want a horse on bute and banamine together. Immediately stop one or the other and find a new vet that won't make such a bad mistake. Having a horse on two NSAIDs like that can cause serious gastric problems as well as damaging the kidneys!
