Dengie Supports Research Into Laminitis
The Laminitis Trust has provided almost £541,000 of funding for research into this debilitating condition. The sum was raised thanks to feed companies such as Dengie, which invests significantly in the charity’s assurance mark – the gold standard for safe horse feeds – and the many horse owners who buy its approved products.
Dengie has more Laminitis Trust-approved products than any other feed company and it is committed to the approval mark scheme, which flags up suitable feeds for horses and ponies that are prone to laminitis.
“We have six approved by the Laminitis Trust, having submitted them because of the high regard in which we hold this organisation’s work,” said Dengie Marketing Manager Lisa Wilson. “To achieve the approval mark, each feed must undergo rigorous testing – which instils a high level of consumer confidence. The seal of approval on feed sacks might be small, but it makes a huge difference for riders seeking suitable, safe feed for their horses and ponies.”
