SPILLERS® has donated £12,000 to the Laminitis Trust, to help fund important research on this potentially devastating condition.
The funds were raised as the result of a special campaign run by SPILLERS®, which involved the feed company donating 20p to the Laminitis Trust from every bag of SPILLERS HAPPY HOOF® sold, during the months of April and May 2012.
The Laminitis Trust, founded in 1998, is the only registered charity dedicated to supporting research into equine laminitis. Clare Barfoot RNutr, the research and development manager at SPILLERS®, said: “The Laminitis Trust is at the forefront of essential work to discover the causes of this painful and debilitating condition and we are proud to be able to support their endeavours.”
Robert Eustace, founder of the Laminitis Trust continued: “We are extremely grateful to SPILLERS® for this generous donation. All the money will be used to help fund our laminitis research projects. Horse owners should select feeds carrying the Laminitis Trust Feed Approval Mark logo to help them keep their animals at the correct body weight and reduce the risk of laminitis.”
