AntiLam is a pelleted multi-supplement designed to provide nutritional support for those prone to, being treated for, or recovering from laminitis. AntiLam is used and recommended by nutritionists, vets and farriers.
Most overweight ponies, and some overweight horses, are susceptible to laminitis.
AntiLam is a brilliant formulation combining several supplements with a high-fibre, very low-calorie carrier to make it palatable. Long-term trials at Middle Park Laminitis Research Unit have shown that horses and ponies on restricted/poor grazing do not gain any weight when fed AntiLam. It can also be used very successfully as part of a calorie-controlled diet when weight loss is required.
This unique multi-supplement is so palatable that it can be fed out of the hand to horses and ponies at pasture to provide vital nutritional support.
AntiLam should be fed on its own with forage. The forage can be in the form of late-cut hay and/or unmolassed chops e.g. TopChop Lite, or controlled grazing, or a combination of these, depending on the individual circumstances.
For example, we would recommend that an overweight 12hh pony, on box-rest because of laminitis should receive 125g of AntiLam plus 1kg of TopChop Lite twice a day. In addition, 2kg (1 flap) of late-cut meadow hay that has been soaked for about 12 hours in ample fresh, cool, clean water, should be fed daily.
Once horses and ponies have recovered from laminitis, they can stay on AntiLam permanently. However, if extra condition is needed, Comprehensive Feed Balancer is a very safe product to use. If extra condition is not needed, we recommend that horses and ponies stay on AntiLam for at least a year but after that they can be fed Lite Feed Balancer provided they are not obese.
ypical feed regime for a 12hh pony in the early stages of recovering from laminitis:-
2kg (approx 1 flap of a small bale) late-cut meadow hay (soaked as advised) per 24 hours

125g TopSpec AntiLam (Brilliant multisupplement including an effective hoof supplement, pro and prebiotic yeast products, a broad spectrum supplement and generous levels of anti-oxidants. In a high-fibre, very low calorie, ‘Non- Heating’ pellet)
