WHEN TO CALL THE VE­TERI­NAR­IAN

EQUUS - - Handson -

Call your ve­teri­nar­ian right away if you no­tice any of th­ese signs:

• could sig­nal bruis­ing, strain or other in­jury.

• at the nail holes or on the un­der­side of the hoof

• wall. A sec­tion of miss­ing hoof wall that ex­poses un­der­ly­ing soft tis­sues is an ob­vi­ous emer­gency, but even a mi­nor­look­ing crack may be se­ri­ous, par­tic­u­larly if it “spreads” when the hoof bears weight.

• Any at the bot­tom of the foot.
