Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do you need for a consultation?

A: A detailed history of the horse leading up to the current concern is critical. Also recent hoof photographs and radiographs if available. Also any diagnostic information from the veterinarian in charge of the horse’s case: blood work, other imaging, visit records, etc.

Q: What kind of hoof photographs do you need?

A: The better the hoof photos the more we can help you! We ask for images of the horse’s body, from the side, front, and back, and hoof photographs of the sole, side view, and front view. Hoof photographs should be taken with the following protocol:

Q: What radiograph views do you need?

A: It is most helpful to have radiographic views of all four feet from the front and the side (lateral and DP). The lateral radiographs should have a marker of known length down the dorsal wall (30mm or similar length is helpful). Start the marker where the coronary band turns from hard to soft. The most benefit from digital imagery to your horse is when photographs are taken at the same time as the radiographs and sent together.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: Consultation is based on how much time it takes to go through the information you send, and how detailed of a report you would like in return. Consultation rates are $200/hour and most consultations take an hour to an hour and half depending on the complexity of the situation. Time is broken into 15 minute increments rounded to the closest 15 minute interval. To secure your consultation, please submit the information requested on the request form, and your $200 payment via PayPal with the link provided.
