Bonnie Pennell, RCSHom, is launching a new website. From this website horse owners will gain knowledge on the prevention of future episodes of laminitis caused by lifestyle, implement a treatment plan for existing cases of laminitis, and find a host of resources from which to learn the basic needs of horses as dictated by nature.
When owners are able to implement the changes in lifestyle and care of their horses themselves they have a better understanding of what is required and are able to play the major role in their horses well being. They will acquire the confidence to interact on a knowledgeable basis with hired professionals like veterinarians and farriers and natural hoof trimmers. The importance of owner knowledge in fulfilling their horse’s needs cannot be over emphasized.
Horses worldwide suffer from laminitis often caused by lifestyles that do not reflect their basic needs. Veterinary costs for treatment are very high, and often the prognosis is unfavourable and euthanasia is recommended. This is a devastating situation for all concerned. Horse owners must be more aware of the symptoms and causes of laminitis and be able to implement the necessary lifestyle changes for their horses.
Bonnie says “This step by step method of treating horse laminitis gives us as owners a plan to follow at a time when there is so much uncertainty, confusion, and pressure created by concern for the animal and by what others perceive the treatment procedure should be or in the worst case when euthanasia is strongly recommended. It gives owners an alternative way of looking at the problem, focussing on the natural healing powers of nature when the animal is able to live in the natural lifestyle nature intended. Just by learning to detect the early symptoms of laminitis and making simple lifestyle adjustments the problem can be treated before lasting damage occurs. It gives the owner knowledge to make informed choices regarding the care of their horse.”
Bonnie has been involved with horses all her life. She began studying various training and care methods of horses in 1989 and obtained her trainer’s license for training standardbred race horses in 1992. Looking for alternative methods of treating her horses she enrolled in the 4 year program at the Vancouver homeopathic Academy where she received her diploma in classical homeopathy. She started practicing homeopathy in White Rock, BC in 1999 and currently operates a small practice where she lives in Abbotsford, BC. She also owns and trains 1 standardbred race horse and has 5 Icelandic horses, a Peruvian Paso and a Quarter horse.
