Treating Hoof Defects
Referrals can come from your veterinarian, farrier, yourself, or as a second opinion.

Typical visits include an examination, radiographs, measurements, hoof trimming, shoeing and detailed discharge reports for you and your veterinarian or farrier. Services are provided jointly by Dr Mansmann and farrier Kurt vom Orde.

Examples of conditions we typically see include:

  • Abnormal foot conformation

  • Laminitis evaluations resulting in a treatment, shoeing, and monitoring plan
