Katie update, 2/2/10

The average sole depth of a horse should be a 12, Katie only has a 5 . There is very little remodeling of the coffin bone (excellent). The following is the procedures as prescribed by Dr. Hadland that will conducted on Katie for her road to recovery.


2. Rice maintain her weight

3. 14 days 2 x per day soaking in Epson Salts and Betadyne. This will cause the abcesses she does have to be drawn out. No sole will be removed from her feet.

4. She will have her toes cut back, which will cause a quick breakover, keeping the pressure off her toes.

5. Shoes will be put on, no pads.

She has this in both front feet. She will be given bute in moderation to keep her comfortable, but Dr. Hadland stated that continous use of bute can be a source for other problems. She should recover nicely in a six month period, but he says she must toughen her soles up.

Thank you all for your prayers and support!
