The hoof orthopaedist controls this in a different way from the outset and thus avoids one-sided abrasion. Find the right hoof orthopaedist nearby and let your horse's hooves be cared professional!
Lid horseshoe system
For the treatment of hoof diseases, in particular hoof cancer, a new lid horseshoe system was developed. This method makes it possible for the farrier to continue shoeing the horse and treat the injured areas without having to remove the shoe. This allows the owner or the veterinarian to easily treat the area through an opening and then close it tightly so that no germs or dirt can get into the wound. Does your horse have problems with frog cancer, thrush or other hoof diseases? Contact one of our experts or inform yourself here.
