Founder - (Laminitis)
Laminitis occurs most often in horses due to grain or high protein overload.  
Laminitis is the constriction and depletion of the arterial blood supply
through the terminal arch within the hoof, caused by histamines and toxins
released in the body.

The most common clinical sign of laminitis are:

  • Stiff and soreness in the front legs

Without proper action and preventative measures, the depletion of the
blood vessels can cause severe pathology. Therefore, the sooner the
treatment begins following incidents that can lead to founder, the better.  In
severe cases, the animal can become permanently lame.  Left untreated,
gross pathology with lamino necrosis and third phalynx rotation can become

Current Therapies
The use of Karbo Combo, in field studies, has proven very effective in
resolving the symptoms of Laminitis.  Karbo Combo will aid in the dilation of
the capillaries and tie up the harmful toxins and histamines.

Karbo Combo consists of encapsulated enzymes, vitamins, bacteria, and
large numbers of mannan and glucan oligosaccharides.  In addition, the
formula also contains glycocomponents necessary for tying up and
neutralizing various toxins.

The objective of Karbo Combo is to attach and bind to the surface lectins of
pathogenic viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and toxins, therefore rendering them
incapable of colonization and reproduction.  The stimulation and
modulation of the complex immune system by this formulation is not clearly
understood at this time.
