    Okan,

    Perhaps you could try making a "poultice", such as the man made on that video. You can use baby diapers (the disposable type) and put epsom salts and some water in the middle, then wrap around the hoof and tape it on with lots of heavy tape, like duct tape ( the large silver/gray kind). Mayve doin this to one front hoof for a few days to see if this helps.

    Hopefully, some other more experience persons here can help you.

    Is the "cow food" a dried grass? Or, is it a food that is in bags? Bagged cow foods may have things added that are very dangerous to horses. It can cause laminitis.

    But, if your horses have been eating it and this is the first time one has been sick, I would guess it is from the hooves (nails) being cut too short. This will cause extreme pain and make it easy for infection to start.

    I am hoping your horse recovers. I wish we could help even more. Best of luck for you.

    1- Stop the reason: The reason can be food? So I have to change food?
    2- Fix the barn: Mean I have to make sof floor so horse can lie down.
    3- Straw: I have to gvie horse straw
    4-Less food: I have to give horse less food?
    5- sulfate : do not know what sulfate in medicine but I will check from pharmacy.
    6- antibiotics : Penisilin?
    7- aspirin: Is it same as we use? And dose? It does not say. This is to help blood get flowing.

    okay.
    1. I think food is the reason. Sometimes the horse gets sick over time, not immediately. Can you get hay?
    2. Can you make her a bed of deep sand? That will make her more comfortable.
    3. Straw she can eat also
    4. Maybe not less, but different. Hay!
    5. I don't know about sulfate
    6. No, not needed
    7. Aspirin could help with pain and bloodflow.

    If I give you a link to a website for how to do her hooves(nails), can the man who does them do it that way?

    I can use bale instead of sand if necessary. These are no problem at all.
    Problem is I use medicine or not? If yes which medicine and dosage. Aspirin how many? Do I need bandage her nails or use something on nails?.

    This is an explanation of what happens in the foot and what to do.

    This has a lot of pictures of a pony who has laminitis and how it has been trimmed

    NANRIC INC. - Shoeing the Laminitic Horse Video
    This is another way of treating it. With shoes. I don't know if your horseshoer can do that.

    Very important is now to make your pony a little more comfortable. Do the sand stall, but give her hay or straw to eat so she doesn't eat the sand.
    You can stand her in cold water. Each leg in a bucket or make a place with mud and stand her in there as long as she wants.
    No more cow food!!!!

    If you can, call the veterinarian again and tell her your pony has laminitis and if she doesn't know how to treat it, maybe she has a colleague who knows. She can tell you the dosage for the aspirin also.

    My compliments for being such a good horseowner. Not everybody would try so hard to find help.
