Good farriery is essential to maintain and improve the soundness and performance of horses and ponies.
Here at Flawborough, working as a team with vets and farriers, we treat acute and chronic foot problems with great effect - combining the latest techniques, modalities, traditional skills and knowledge.
As a team, we understand about foot balance and its effect on lameness conditions affecting the lower limbs and feet. Most commonly we encounter lameness problems localised to the foot to include: palmar foot pain, navicular syndrome, laminitis and more.
Remedial farriery at Flawborough includes the use of traditional steel and aluminium shoes, along with the more recently developed technology of glue-on plastic shoes, thermoplastic shoes, acrylic hoof filler to repair defects in the hoof wall and sole packing.
Whilst in our care referring veterinary surgeons and the horse’s regular farrier are always kept informed of the horse’s treatment and progress.
