Laminitis

Laminitis is often an overused term for cattle lameness. Historically, many types of cattle foot conditions were collectively referred to as “laminitis”. As veterinary medicine has progressed, we have been able to define these individual conditions (sole ulcer, white line disease, coriosis, etc) and as such true “laminitis” is less often diagnosed.
