Diseases of the Hoof

We offer a comprehensive approach to diseases of the foot.  You've heard it said, "no foot, no horse"!  That is why Dr. Meddleton takes a special interest in diseases of the foot and working together with farriers to keep your horse sound.

No Foot, No Horse

From acute issues like abscesses and laminitis to long-term issues like club feet and corrective shoeing, we are dedicated to working with you, your horse, and your farrier to keep your horse sound at his base.

It's A Team Effort

Most foot issues require a team working together and communicating effectively: the vet, you and your farrier.  Meddleton Equine regularly sponsors farrier clinics that bring in experts in the field to elevate & foster a working communication between vet and farrier.  We examine cases together, taking pre and post radiographs to assess the effectiveness of various corrective shoeing techniques.
