This is a show jumper that was presented with a mild lameness on his right front. On investigating, a fungal infection (white line disease) was discovered. Treatment included debridement of the affected area and an overnight soak with a medicated packing to remove all trace elements. The void in the dorsal wall was filled with digital impression material after being packed with keratin copper sulphate putty. Equilox was applied to the good part of the hoof and a cast applied to distribute the entire weight on to the healthy hoof wall. a heart bar was then applied and the horse was then sound.
