Re: Hoof abscesses in front hooves

Trisha DePietro

Hi Rhonda. I'm following along here, interested in your horses abscesses- is Scooter wearing shoes? What is the nature of the material that is draining from the abscess areas? Is it thick or thin? Does it have a particular color to it? Does it have an odor? What is the odor you smell? Fish smell, or other descriptor? It would be good too if you could add some solar hoof shots of the areas that you are seeing the abscess drain tracks. 

Also, to get the best hoof xrays- you might find it helpful to review this link...
