Why you shouldn't skip a trim...

December 12, 2018

We get it, it happens. Trust me! But it's better to get your horse trimmed a little late than skip them entirely! Here's why...


 Super bad flare, and a hoof crack that was allowed to travel up the wall and get worse. Proper trimming can help prevent this! This mare was lame for quite some time. Fortunately her new owner called us immediately.


Here are more pictures:


 Pretty nasty huh? See how the wall has peeled back along the crack?

Justin had to do a partial resection of the hoof wall to correct this.

He was able to clean out the infection that had formed in the cavity after her cut away the wall.

He wrapped her hoof in vetwrap with an antibacterial pack, and she was able to heal over time and proper trimming.
