the ILPH, the RSPCA and the Laminitis Trust are very concerned about
the method of trimming horses feet espoused by a German veterinary surgeon
Dr H. Strasser. Although no doubt well meaning, our experiences with
laminitis and foundered horses and ponies in the UK which have been
subjected to the "Strasser trim", as it has become known,
have been entirely unfavourable.
Trust does not endorse the Strasser trimming method.
information on the trimming and shoeing methods we do recommend are
to be found in the Emergency Treatment sections of this website.
