Lami-Free is a hoof supplement developed to provide nutritional maintenance of the laminae. It is suitable for horses and ponies prone to laminitis.
Horses with laminitis (also known as founder) experience inflammation of the laminae of the foot. Laminitis is characterised by hot and painful hooves and obvious lameness when moving.
Prevention and treatment of laminitis involve addressing the cause of this painful condition in partnership with your veterinarian and farrier. A laminitis supplement such as Dodson & Horrell’s Lami-Free may be used to assist with the repair and maintenance of hoof tissue.
Dodson & Horrell are a UK company awarded the Royal Warrant as horse feed manufacturer to HM Queen Elizabeth II.
Lami-Free is a dried organic herbal blend containing all natural ingredients:
The Lami-Free equine supplement was created following an observation that cloven animals grazing on seaweed at the coastline never seem to have problems with their feet.
This may have something to do with the fact that seaweed contains many minerals, amino acids and vitamins. Not all seaweed is created equal though – some have metal residues or too much iodine.
The seaweed in Dodson & Horrell’s Lami-Free is certified organic from Connimara in Southern Ireland on the Atlantic Coast and has passed all tests. Herbalist David Hussey blends fine cut rosehips with the seaweed – these ingredients mixed together are doing amazing things for horses with hoof problems.
Lami-Free also contains nettle for healthy circulation and immune function.
A small, safe dose of garlic added for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties completes the Lami-Free formula.
When suffering from laminitis, the blood within the laminae becomes hot and black. The Lami-Free blend has been formulated to help reduce the heat and return the colour of the blood in the laminae back to normal.
Many owners around the world call Lami-Free their Spring-time lifesaver!

“We saw improvements just 10 days into using the Dodson & Horrell ‘Lami Free’ Herbal blend. The little grey pony could barely stand and each step was painful. We even had her feet padded and bandaged to make it easier for her. She now runs everywhere! It has given our beautiful ponies a new lease on life. I have recommended the product to many people, including one over east, who has also had amazing results”.
