Hello Everyone, I am attempting to redesign my blog. I am trying to design to have a page for each disease process of the equine hoof. This is an update to the severe white line disease case I have been working on for the last few months. Considerable progress has been made noted by good hoof wall growth free of fungal invasion and good sole depth recovery. The foot has regenerated and is looking more like a foot should. One area on the lateral (outside) toe of the right front that has not responded and has invaded the new growth. During this visit I completely removed all horn affected and this is the only spot that I needed to remove part of the new growth.
I was able to get a couple of nails in the heel region but mostly nails are glued to the inner layers of horn wall. Please look back at the previous months post's to see pictures and radiographs. After the pictures I wrapped a 3" casting tape for added security but removed any glue or cast material over the Lateral toe site so the owner could clean and treat with keratex hoof hardener, but mostly keep it open to the air.
