Hoof falling off at coronary band!**

Hi there I was wondering if anyone has experienced a horses hoof falling off at the coronary band and the horse being able to recover ???

My 11 year old mare got caught up in a wire unfortunately about a month ago .. It cut off the blood flow which caused most of the hoof to fall off clean. We have since been treating it , keeping it clean from infections but it seems to now be slowly falling off from the coronary band as there is a ring of blood around it. I am getting very nervous as I think it will likely fall off and want to know if there's any survivors when this happens :(

Please reply if you know anything about this

You need a Vet out, you needed one out a long time ago.

A few years back,my sweet little QH cut the back of her hoof. We treated it , the vet sewed it together , she was bandaged and it healed well. However, there was a spot on the coronary band that never healed. We kept working on it, but one day, her entire hoof fell off, like a shell, leaving nothing to protect the inside laminia, etc.
She was euthanized that same day.

I know of a couple of cases were horse has had severe damage to hoof & have recovered after months extensive care.Never to riding soundness but surprised the vets that they recovered as much as they did,many owners would have put horse down. Not knowing the severity & what's involved there is no way to predict outcome.By your description, This sounds like something the vet should be consulted on & something you should be prepared to be diligent in months of care if you are hoping for any success in outcome.

Thanks for replying and I'm sorry for the loss of your QH .. It's such a terrible thing to happen

Google Step Ahead farm! They have the experience to be able to help you with the hoof sloughing. But be warned the pic's that they have posted are of a very graphic nature. I believe that they do phone consultations for a small fee. I would try to link to the website but unsure of how to link.

My mare is only a pet anyways as she broke her pelvis last summer messing around with another one of our mares. She healed well but we knew that she was no longer rideable. She's been through a lot she's one tough cookie. Our vet came the day it happened prepared to put her down but when she saw it she had never seen anything like it before because it was so clean and did not fall off from the coronary band. She gave us antibiotics and we have also been giving her bute to fight any infections and for any pain. We realize that it will be a lot or work to help her recover but I'm willing to do that I just don't want her to be miserable and In pain. If it does fall off ( which but the looks of it it will) I'm going to clean it and then see what the vet has to say .
