Re: Bailey chronic RF lameness

Hi Karen,

I'm assuming that the rads dated July 6, 2021 were done before the vet had her foot trimmed - is that correct? Or was the trim before the rads were taken? 

The rads showed that her toe needed to be shortened to bring the breakover back more in line with where the bony column needed it to be. The photo from after the trim shows that the frog and heels were trimmed down, which was not what should have happened as that would result in a ground parallel or negative plane coffin bone orientation. It would likely make her sore.
