In its second installment, this special report from American Farriers Journal provides insight to strengthen the bond between veterinarians and farriers. We worked closely with members of both industries who have reputations for having solid relationships with their hoof-care colleagues to provide this advice. Much like we’ve educated farriers on the best practices for working with veterinarians, we hope to help you avoid those relationship pitfalls that can hamper the goal of helping the horse. By reflecting on the information provided on these pages, you will be better prepared on those cases that require working with farriers. Building better relationships with farriers isn’t just good business — it is your responsibility to the horse.
