Just wanting your opinions. My mare has been suffering from recurring hoof infection/inflammation which I have been trying to treat for the last 8 months.
I've been through 3 vets so far and not much success. Originally we thought it was an abscess so the vet cut away at the hoof so that they could pack it with antibiotics to see if it would burst that way but now I've been told it is Quittor.
Due to my location, I have only just been able to get an xray (vet's mobile xray machine kept breaking and being sent away for repair and no one else was available to do xrays)
It appears that the part of the bone has been eaten away by the infection. I guess at this stage I am wondering how to make her comfortable. The vet has suggested an eggbar shoe.
