JANUARY 2017 - Called out by owner to do a trim and boot fit on a horse who can no longer hold shoes.
For those that have not yet seen White line disease or seedy toe eat away at healthy tissue hooves, this is a classic and severe case of this pathology.
Lateral solar view. A huge cavity with ongoing infection. Needless to say, the owner had bigger issues to now try and comprehend rather than a boot size for riding!
Same hoof, same day after resection of infected and dead tissue.
HOOF MATE soaks were used from Day 1 of the resection. Easycare Soaker boots were on hand as was the HOOF MATE soak. Owner continued HOOF SOAKS three times per week for 1 month, then weekly until May.
OCTOBER 2017 - Same hoof 9 months on. Nicely connected wall, infection cleared up and hoof beginning to regain some health.
The owner now has her hoof boots and has recommended riding!
OCTOBER 2018 - The hoof continues to stay free of pathology.
Horse is 30years old, TB and continues to trail ride twice weekly with owner.
