What is pedal osteitis?

Pedal osteitis is inflammation of the soles of the forefeet - it's not quite the same thing as laminitis, but can be caused by it, although it's primarily caused by working a horse too hard on solid going. There's no cure for it, and the horse will eventually go permanently lame, but special shoes can keep them sound for longer.
