Laminitis app for Android

Just a quick post to let you know that the Laminitis app which I blogged about back in March is now available not just for iPhone but for Android too.
Of course, its not the only way to tell when you grass is at high risk and it can only form part of a whole management plan but it is a very useful tool, particularly if you need to demonstrate to a yard owner or sceptical friends that actually being turned out in a lovely green field at 8am isn't the best option for your horse(!).

There is more detailed info available here, along with details of where to find the app: http://www.laminitis-risk.com/

Very cool! I wish it covered that the US!

How fab I was about to buy an iPhone just for the laminitis app! Also there is a company doing free blood tests to check for predisposition to laminitis and cushings. I guess you have to pay for the vet to take the bloods but the analysis is free until the end of May. I have an email somewhere with the details and can dig it out if anyone is interested.

This is such a great app, I bought it immediately and can highly recommend it.

After a while of using it I'm sure it gives an accurate picture based on local weather patterns, a handy tool alongside good management practices :-)
