Re: Hoof abscesses in front hooves

The farrier gave him his usual trim July 29.  I had chatted with him and asked him to let me know if he found anything of note in his feet.  Nothing was found.  Abscesses do not show up on x-rays.  However my vet is coming this Friday to collect blood sample for metabolic testing. I will ask her to x-ray his front feet.  The hoof abscesses have not improved but neither have they got worse.
