Successful Podiatry Weekend North Queensland Equine Clinic

Dr Luke Wells-Smith from Motion Equine Podiatry Consulting travelled to the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland this weekend to work with the North Queensland Equine Clinic and the Tableland Veterinary Service on foot related lameness cases. There was a great group of farriers, veterinarians, support staff, veterinary students from James Cook University and horse owners, all working together to provide solutions for horses with foot issues. Cases ranged from club feet, sheared heels, caudal heel pain, re-occurring abscesses and of course laminitis.

For each case the history was discussed with the owner, veterinarian and farrier. Then the horse was evaluated standing, and at the walk and trot to assess the overall conformation of the horse and the degree of lameness. X-rays were used to determine if there was any pathology within the hoof capsule and to determine the biomechanics of the internal workings of the foot. From there Dr Luke and the farrier and veterinarian in charge of the case made a treatment plan. The treatment plan would consist of the use of therapeutic shoe or boots to manage the underlying condition, along with recommendations for confinement and exercise, nutrition and any medications required. Each case had a tailored approach to best improve the outcome of the case.

This is the second podiatry workshop Motion Equine Podiatry Consulting has completed with the North Queensland Equine Clinic and given the interest and success of this recent trip, there will be likely more in the future!
