Diseased solar corium

Right hind foot

This horse showed severe lameness in the right hind foot. It was brought to us as a last resort after several veterinarians and veterinary clinics had tried and failed to find the cause for the disease of the corium. Upon arrival, we found the corium was leaking and had been opened up incompletely. In addition to the lateral heel being contracted multiple deformities clearly pointed to the causes. Only restoring the hoof to a sound shape by employing hoof orthopedic methods enabled the healing process in the corium to begin (with accompanying wound treatment).

Left hind foot

The left hind hoof was deformed because the horse had put too great a strain on it since it could not use the right foot. The increasing ability to use the right foot again was beneficial to the hoof orthopedic rehabilitation of the left hoof.
