Podiatry

Here at HEVC we understand the importance of healthy hooves in our equine athletes. As they say, “no hoof no horse”. All of our vets have experience in dealing with the wide range of hoof conditions that can affect your horse. Dr Jen Lugton has a special interest in laminitis and has worked with Dr Redden (USA ) on certain severe cases.

Due to the complex nature of many foot conditions (especially laminitis), it often requires an ongoing relationship between our vets, the farrier and the owner. We aim to provide a podiatry service from newborn foals through to geriatric horses.

Our podiatry services include digital radiographs, venograms, and farrier consultations along with surgical and medical therapies.
