Dechra Sponsors Hoof Lameness Awareness Week
Hoof health is crucial to a horse’s soundness. |

Hoof lameness can put all your riding plans to a halt. Hoof bruises and abscesses usually resolve with early intervention and judicious care. Other chronic issues, like caudal heel pain, might require more aggressive veterinary treatment and hoof care changes. To help, The Horse: Your Guide to Equine Health Care has partnered with Dechra to bring you hoof-lameness-related content Feb. 13-19, 2022. Look for hoof articles all week on, our Facebook page and Twitter feed, and in our e-newsletters.
