Creating Lameness for Inflammation Study

Heart-bar horseshoes that incorporate an adjustable pressure screw are used as a reversible model of hoof pain for experimental studies of anti-inflammatory medications. In this trial, researchers applied heart-bar shoes to five mares. They measured three biochemical markers for inflammation in the bloodstream, as well as dorsal coronary band temperature, before and after the shoes were adjusted to create a Grade 4 lameness (obvious at a walk, AAEP scale 0-5) to determine the role inflammation plays in this model of hoof pain.

Novel Laminitis Treatment An experimental trial in Canada examined the effects of placing a bone screw through the dorsal hoof wall into the coffin bone as a way to stabilize the bone and prevent the rotation associated with laminitis. The pullout strength of the lag screw technique was first tested in cadaver specimens.
