Equine Podiatry

x-ray horse leg

At Reata Veterinary Hospital, we understand the importance of proper equine podiatry and take the time to evaluate your horse's hoof balance during each visit.

We offer suggestions for correcting unbalanced feet and provide discounted radiographs during July and December to properly assess balance issues.

Preventative care is a crucial aspect of equine podiatry, and our wellness program is designed to track the risk factors that lead to laminitis, a painful and deadly disease of the horse's foot. With dietary control, exercise recommendations, proper shoeing, and metabolic control, we can dramatically reduce the incidence of laminitis in our patients.
Enrollment in our free wellness plan ensures that your horse is frequently examined by one of our experienced equine veterinarians to prevent any potential issues. If you have any questions about your horse's hoof health or the farriers we use, please don't hesitate to contact us.
