Foot pain

Foot pain is common in horses. It is characterized by a warmth of the foot and an amplitude defect in locomotion. Foot pain is not necessarily characterized by a limp but by an amplitude default, a more or less warmth and the presence of pulse fingered. The origin of this pain can be diverse: joint, tendon, bone, ligament. Outside factors such as bad ground, shoeing, use can cause foot pain. The diagnosis is mainly clinical.
