Prevention is better than cure.......
If you keep your horse barefoot and employ a qualified equine podiatrist (barefoot trimmer ) to help you care for your horse, you and your horse will already be enjoying the kind of routine monitoring of -
signs of insulin resistance
signs of equine metabolic syndrome
signs of low grade laminitis
abnormal hoof growth
Which so often catch potentially very serious diseases such as rotational laminitis, sinker, and navicular syndrome long before they become a life threatening problem.
If you have your horse shod your farrier may not, both in note and photographic form monitor and record these things at every visit. Many horse owners are capable of making these routine checks themselves, but we all know that in this busy world these routine checks are the very things which always get left until tomorrow, which never comes ........
I am a qualified equine podiatrist but I would like to offer the kind of checks which I routinely make on my clients horses and which so often avoid disaster before it strikes to the wider horse population. I firmly believe that by keeping you horse in optimum condition, he/she will be able to tolerate having shoes better than if his health is compromised by being overweight, suffering from IR or EMS.
So if you would like to find out more about getting these safety checks for your horse in a non judgemental situation, you can contact me – Wendy Curnow, on 01209 710496- landline, 07800 596573 - mob, email - firstname.lastname@example.org
