Sumi, a 12 year old Westfalen dressage competitor, developed acute laminitis and was on the verge of foundering in August 2015. Using EquineLight’s SLD red light and infrared wavelengths, Sumi was treated every one to two days for 30-40 minutes. From the first treatment she responded positively with lip licking and neck stretching. After six sessions, her vet cleared her to being training.
Shortly after Aryton, a nine year old Oldenburg gelding, arrived at his new barn, he showed signs of lameness. For weeks later, this Developing Young Horse began rearing and bucking under saddle. Veterinary diagnosis shows a level 4 high suspensory tear on his right hind and three smaller suspensory tears (four total). On his vet’s recommendation he received five weeks of EquineLight therapy followed by a stem cell treatment. The subsequent RMI and ultrasound showed that the largest tear had been reduced to a level 1. Aryton is back in training and continues weekly EquineLight treatments for maintenance.
Forjatt developed EIPH (exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage). Drug laws in UAE prevented his trainer from using traditional US methods to control the condition. After six treatments over a one week period, Forjatt was cleared to race and won the Group 3 Jebel Ali Mile Stakes. Forjatt remains free of EIPH.
