REBUILDS & TRAUMA
I am usually called in by the vets to deal with trauma cases. Often part of the hoof wall is missing. The foot is an amazing structure. If the coronary band remains largely undamaged the hoof wall will grow down remarkably quickly following trauma. My job is to stabilise the foot, which still has to be able to bear weight. In these cases it's also important to monitor the opposite undamaged foot as there is a risk of laminitis in that foot.
