Events in the month of August 2023
August 1, 2023
  • Sylvia Ouellette, DVM DABVP (Equine) 

Sponsored By: 
  • Oakhurst Equine Veterinary Services
  • Monthly forum that brings 2 equine veterinary podiatry cases to go over with the group of farriers (and veterinarians) and discuss underlying medical condition, treatment options and shoeing options. Shoeing is then performed on the horses in question with hands on application of shoes and forging techniques to aid in treatment. 
August 8, 2023
Davie County Large Animal Hospital hosts a farrier meeting on the second Tuesday of every month at their clinic for farriers, veterinarians, and horse owners. We bring in a case study horse experiencing a lameness issue to evaluate and discuss the best approach to diagnose, treat and maintain it. The veterinarian completes a full lameness exam on the horse and utilizes appropriate diagnostics such as radiographs, nerve blocks, and flexions. Upon lameness diagnosis, all farriers and veterinarians in attendance collaborate in a round table discussion about the best method to shoe the horse. The existing farrier on the case is heavily encouraged to attend and shoe the horse with inputs from other farriers present at the meeting.

Our goal is to collaborate with the veterinarians and educate all in attendance. We want to ensure that the process we execute at our meetings is repeatable by the farrier at the farm going forward.
