We are excited about becoming the first distributor of FormaHoof™ products here in Australia.

Happy Easter

We hope everyone has had time off over the Easter holiday period. It has been a busy start to the year and lots to look forward to in the not so distant future.

Equine Health Technology

The partnership between Motion EPC and Binary Health Care Australia has been moving forward in Equine Health Technology. We have our prototype design complete and are looking to start testing in the next month or so. Once we are through the testing phase and nailed down manufacturing, we can give out some more information. We also decided on a logo for the company, designed by Daniel Wells-Smith.


In conjunction with Crown Equine, we are hosting Formahoof on the 18th of April 2018 at Kings Park Equine Clinic, 485 Mornington-Tyabb Road, Moorooduc, Victoria. Formahoof is a unique and innovative way to apply a ‘shoe’ to the hoof of the horse. A presentation and demonstration will kick off at 12pm and run through until 4pm. I encourage anyone who is interested in podiatry and new technology to attend the day and to please register here.


Science Week

I will be speaking at the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists – Science Week. Science Week will be held on the 5th-7th of July 2018 at the QT Hotel, Surfers Paradise, Queensland. My topic will be the ‘Diagnosis and Management of Acute Laminitis’. I’m planning to cover topics such as; early clinical and radiographic signs of laminitis, the use of the venogram in acute laminitis, and different orthotic options for these cases.

We added another new video to our blog. This was an introduction to a few of the practices and techniques I use on a daily basis as a veterinary podiatrist. We also added a new article on severe laminitis. The article was in response to the recent passing of Miss Vista and detailed new treatment and management options for horses with laminitis.

As a side, we are averaging approximately 5 new cases a week through our online consulting portal. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, it is well worth a look.

Once again, I hope you enjoyed the short break,


Dr Luke Wells-Smith BVSc
