Ok my gelding has laminitis and has been fighting this battle now for months. Now he's abcessing on both fronts. Had vet out and it is in fact abcesses going on.
Been soaking both front now going on four days twice a day 20 minutes with epsom salt and warm water enough to cover all his hoof. So is there a better way to get abcesses to pop without soaking? Has to be something that doesn't require him holding up feet very long has to be a fast deal. He doesn't want to pickup feet very good right now he's in serious pain. Giving bute isn't an option he endsup with ulcers with in days of having it....been there done that. He just got healed up from a nasty bout of ulcers.
I didn't let vet go digging for abcesses don't care to have his soles full of holes there is more then 1 abcess going on.
