Equine Podiatry in Maryland
Equine podiatry is the understanding of the form and function of the horse foot. Combining information from a physical exam, radiology and ultrasound with therapeutic farriery can relieve and prevent foot problems. Podiatry treatments can be applied to help acute and chronic laminitis, acute and chronic heel and sole pain, hoof wall cracks or injuries and white line infections. Therapeutic medications, hoof surgery, composite technology and glue on shoes can allow for foot rehabilitation and return to normal use.
We strive to work together with our client’s farriers in clinical situations. At our equine clinic, our well lit, climate controlled farrier shop is open for use by client’s farriers. Please call for more information or to make an appointment.
