EQUINE BAREHOOF CARE

REMOTE SERVICES
How to arrange a photo consultation:
Naturally, a photo assessment does NOT! replace a physical examination, BUT basic problems may be evident to a trained eye.

*  Is your horse having problems?   (intermittent lameness, irregularity or unevenness of stride,
  stumbling, wall cracks,  muscle problems etc. etc. ?
*  Do you just want a second (or third) opinion?
*  Is a surgical procedure (e.g. neurectomy, tenotomy) the last option your vet has given you?
*  Is your farrier suggesting resections, corrective shoeing, wedge pads, artificial filler....
*  Do you simply want some trimming suggestions?
*   Is your horse being trimmed physiologically correct?
*  Are you a professional interested in another's point of view. (4 eyes see more than 2) ?

Cost: from $25 to $75 per consultation (please contact first, so I can quote)

  Urgent cases will be dealt with first!)
Procedure:
If you would like a remote evaluation,
please forward clear and in focus,
either printed or digital photographs as follows:

*   Full body picture
   Side-on with horse casually standing on firm, level surface (1.)

*   Photograph of each CLEAN hoof,
    taken from the side with camera on ground level
    (smooth, clean surface, clean hoof) (2.)

*   Photograph of each foot, taken from the front with camera on ground level
    (smooth, clean surface, clean hoof) (3.)

*   Photograph of solar aspect of the hoof (cleaned hoof) (4.)

Use high resolution shots for clarity, do not shrink digital pictures.

If you have radiographs, I wahnt to see them.
(some veterinarians are will not allow you to take your x-rays from
their surgery, not even if they would  assist your hoofcare provider on the day.
Should you have this problem, go to the surgery and take digital pictures of
the x-rays while they hang on the lightbox!)
