The US alone has almost ten million horses. The most current estimates are that 10% to 15% of horses will suffer from laminitis every year, with 80% to 90% of the cases caused by endocrine disorder. That is, on average, one million per year in the US alone.

It can be a death sentence if not diagnosed and managed correctly. For two decades the ECIR Group has improved the welfare of equines with metabolic disorder by focusing on prevention and treatment of endocrinopathic laminitis. Helping caregivers learn to recognize the importance of diagnosis, diet, trim and exercise has seen thousands through the complications of Equine Cushing’s Disease (PPID) and Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS).

Today ECIR Group is thrilled to announce the 2020 NO Laminitis! Conference. The date and venue have been set.

When: The weekend of October 22 - 25, 2020

Where: Best Western Premier, Harrisburg, PA, USA

Speakers: Drs. Kellon and Bowker are confirmed. Additional lecturers to be announced in the coming weeks.

Attendees: Any owner or professional who has one or more equines in their care.

As final details are put in place, registration info will be announced. Keep an eye out for conference info on Facebook, ecirhorse.org, nolaminitis.org and IVIS.

Attendees of the 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017 conferences welcomed the latest in research and specific protocols used to improve the welfare of equines in their care. The 2020 NO Laminitis! Conference will continue to build on that mission, with this one being a special celebration of the ECIR Group 20-year anniversary.
