Equine Ailments - A to Z



Seedy Toe - Cavities sometimes form in the soft horn (the white line), between the inner and outer parts of the wall of the hoof, causing softening and crumbling, usually in the toe area. If the cavities extend in depth to the deeper vascular layers they may become infected and exude pus. Laminitis, infrequent trimming or stone damage may all be factors. Treatment Cleanse thoroughly of debris and apply a poultice if there is pus. The farrier will cut back the infected horn to healthy tissue, and may use remedial shoeing.
