Why Should I know About This

Detailed radiographic evaluation of the horse’s foot is very useful in preplanning and management of trimming and shoeing of a horse’s foot and in the
prevention of lameness.

Horse’s exhibiting poor foot conformation, imbalance, or abnormal patterns of growth can be clues to impending foot disease and lameness. Radiographic evaluation, alongside a thorough clinical evaluation supported by in depth anatomical knowledge, of a horse’s foot gives tremendous insight into the relationship between the structures within the foot and between the foot
and distal limb.

This E-Book gives the reader an invaluable insight into the common radiographic views used in podiatry / farriery along with comparative data from which the reader can evaluate differences in appearance from the currently accepted norm.
