Glushu Case Study: Laminitis.
Great Glushu work from farrier Ulrich Gerusel who used Glushu glue on horse shoes to help a horse with chronic laminitis. This horse was given no hope by the clinic. Please see Ladys story from her owner Rebekka below.
If you have a horse with laminitis please contact us to discuss how Glushu can help. You can also buy Glushu glue on horse shoes direct from our online store.
"Hi I am Rebekka and this is my horse Lady. We have been using Glushu for 8 months with the expert help of farrier Ulrich Gerusel.
Lady was suffering so badly from laminitis that our vet advised that we should consider putting her to sleep as there was not much to be done. I spoke to farrier Ulrich Gerusel who has used Glushu to great effect on many horses and thought it was worth a try to save my horses life.
Please see photos below. The worse x-rays were taken in June. Shortly thereafter, the Uli started working on Lady.
The better x-rays were taken just two months later. As can be clearly seen on the one picture, some hoof ulcers have formed in the area where the clinician was free to amputate the wall.
The pictures still had about 2-3 "Glushu" so 10-14 weeks later added. But I think you can still see how blatantly the wall was gone. That was actually the biggest difficulty in working with Lady. In the meantime Lady has had to diet and she should spend her days on her little private sand spout.
In the last pictures you can see the hoof for a short time without Glushu. He came back after the photos, of course. That's what Lady's hoof looks like after 5 times Gluhshu.
Then Uli glued the Glushu three times open to the toe as seen in the pictures. And for whatever reason, that works great and my Lady runs well.
And finally a picture which has nothing to do with our hoof drama."
