If your horse has foundered or other lameness problems and you’d like to see how I may be of help to you, fill out the form below. I’ll review the information and contact you. I’m frequently on the road, so I’ll respond as soon as I can. There is no charge for filling out the form or mailing it to me. It is for diagnostic purposes and will help save time getting details and background info. I will use the information to help customize a treatment and rehab program for your horse. Should you decide to have me to take on your case, I will refer back to the data throughout the course of treatment. The initial consultation is free. Visit the Services page for a brief overview of fees. We will discuss fees, payment options and duration of treatment during the initial consultation. Again, this form is offered to you free of charge and you are under no obligations until such time that I actually start working on your case.
Assuming you decide to fill out the form, there are two other sets of information that will be very helpful for determining where to start with your case and having them quickly available will help expedite your case.
The first is a set of current x-rays. If you have them already, great; email them to me as soon as you have a chance. If they are in film format, take digital pictures of them on your vet’s light box for best results, then email the digital copies. (If you can’t get them or aren’t in a position to have any taken, don’t worry, we can discuss other options for now.)
The second is a set of pictures of your horses feet. Review the Quick Photography Tips under the Hoof Problems tab in order to see how to take the pictures and what they should look like. Be mindful of time of day, shadows, surface and the horse’s stance, ie. should be standing square as possible.
You will still be under no obligation at this time, only after we’ve had a chance to talk and I actually begin working your case.
Note: This form is intended to be comprehensive and thought provoking for the purpose of gathering as much data as possible to ‘paint a picture’ as to what your horse’s health is, how it’s been used and treated and to help establish a baseline for treatment from this point forward. Without knowing the following information, an accurate treatment cannot be developed for your horse. Each horse is an individual and the treatment must be tailored to fit each horse and each situation. Please take a take the time to fill out as much information as you can. The more information you can provide, the better the ‘picture’ you will paint and the clearer it will become as to how to best treat your horse. Actual photographs of your horse and its feet will be requested for additional data analysis.
