Oscar's road to recovery
Oscar presented to the U-Vet Werribee Equine Centre for a musculoskeletal injury to the left forelimb. To provide Oscar with an optimal healing environment, a therapeutic shoeing plan was made with the consideration of the biomechanics of the limb and the conformation of the foot.
Shoes can alter the stresses and strains on many of the tendons, ligaments and joints in the lower limb. With the combination of a regular ultrasonographic monitoring of the injury and a controlled rehabilitation program, Oscar’s condition is on the mend.
