Abstract

The corticosteroid laminitis story: 1. Duty of care This report of a law case in the UK Court of Appeal represents the frontier between legal and lay interpretation of the vagaries of biological sciences (Anon 2006). Annastasia, known as Anna, was a very well bred mare. J.M.-G. bought her as a 4-year-old in 1991. She showed so much promise as a dressage horse that, 3 years later, J.M.-G. sent her to M.A., an experienced French rider based at a yard in Sussex. It was anticipated that Anna would represent France at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. At the Sussex yard Anna’s veterinary needs were, at M.A.’s recommendation and with J.M.-G.’s approval, attended to by P.G., a local veterinary surgeon. The first indication that Anna could be developing orthopaedic problems occurred in 1997 when she was referred by P.G. to S.D., an equine specialist at the Animal Health Trust. Two years later, Anna, by then an international dressage star, showed signs of being “uneven” and was seen at the Sussex yard by a French veterinary surgeon, M.LeP. who, in P.G.’s presence, had successfully injected her hocks and back with corticosteroids. But, after a very good year in 2001, Anna’s
