A Serious And All Too Common Problem - Learn How to Keep Your Horse Sound for a Lifetime!
"In my decades of practice as an equine veterinarian, lameness was a problem I dealt with daily. This DVD details what I have learned about what causes lameness, and how to prevent it. I discuss age, defective conformation, nutrition, lack of exercise, injury from an unsafe environment, inappropriate ground surfaces, improper foot care, laminitis, infection, genetics and the most detrimental of all, too much work at too young an age. Included are chapters on physiology and keeping your horse sound. You’ll see how I ascertain where a horse is lame, something that’s often quite confusing, as well as the latest innovative ways of treating lameness, with Shane Miller, DVM. Julie Winkel’s Conformation Clinic and Mary Cottrill’s Natural Hoof Trimming chapters provide insight into how your horse’s anatomy and hoof care contribute to soundness."
