This horse was brought to the facility because of recurrent canker.

As a therapeutic measure the veterinarian had ordered to shoe the horse with special iron shoes which were designed to apply pressure to the tissue above the diseased area to keep the canker from spreading.

The photos show the actual consequences of these truly unique shoes and the healing process facilitated by us after less than 2 months.
