Dr. Redden's Advanced Equine Podiatry Course
July 22-26, 2013
This 5 day course is designed to offer previous Equine Podiatry 101 students the opportunity to further their knowledge and hands-on training experience. The basic 101 principles set the stage for ongoing evolution of ideas and concepts for each student as we think outside the box. We will take on fascinating and challenging podiatry problems to inspire your pursuit of success.
Each day will be divided into two sessions. Morning sessions will consist of extensive case studies covering a wide spectrum of podiatry problems. Each case will highlight the importance of gathering information that is vital for an accurate diagnosis, goal setting, treatment planning and implementation, with knowledge and working relationship of two mutual professions that are held equally responsible for the health of the equine foot. Veterinarians and farriers who study together, work together.
When veterinarians and farriers learn together they enhance their effectiveness when working together. Dr. Redden strongly encourages attending with a partner that you normally would be working with but this not always possible. If you do not have a partner or your partner is unable to attend we will make every effort to match you with a partner during the course.
Topics that will be covered during the course include:
- Using evidence based results to prove the tendon theory
- How DDFT functions correlate with hoof distortion
- Pros and cons of flat vs. mechanical rocker shoes
- Designing the mechanical package, monitoring its influence on the foot and tweaking the formula for crushed heels, club feet, heel pain and toe cracks
- When surgical reduction of DDFT tension is indicated for club feet, DDFT contraction syndrome, laminitis and WLD
- Greatly enhancing street nail surgical success with a multipurpose mechanical shoe
- The real value of the venogram and how to get the most informative views
- How load and or/pathology influences vascular patency
