In the sun-soaked pastures of Australia, the tale of a horse named Muffin unfolds. It’s a story that combines tragedy, resilience, innovation, and ultimately, hope.
The Unthinkable Incident
One fateful day, a feed bag became the source of unimaginable trauma for Muffin. Entwined around his leg, the bag acted as a tourniquet, cutting off vital circulation to his lower limb. The effects were catastrophic. The lack of blood flow caused such extensive damage that Muffin’s hoof capsule detached and fell off.
With no hoof to protect and support his leg, every step became a painful ordeal for Muffin. The agony was evident. Lillie, Muffin’s devoted owner, recalls those harrowing times: “After the hoof capsule was lost, Muffin couldn’t bear any weight on that leg. Seeing him suffer was heart-wrenching.”
The Grim Prognosis
Professional advice painted a bleak picture. Veterinary experts suggested euthanasia, thinking it would be a mercy. The consensus was clear: the rehabilitation process would be arduous, and Muffin’s quality of life might never be the same.
But Lillie wasn’t ready to give up. “The thought of letting him go was unbearable. I believed he deserved a chance. As days turned into weeks, I observed a remarkable will in Muffin. Despite the pain, he showed signs of improvement. The hoof began to cornify, and slowly, ever so slightly, he began to put weight on it.”
A Glimmer of Hope: Discovering FormaHoof
Just as Lillie was grappling with the next steps for Muffin’s treatment, she stumbled upon a post about FormaHoof on Facebook. Intrigued and hopeful, she dove into researching the potential of this product. “The more I read about FormaHoof, the more it seemed like the miracle solution we desperately needed.”
Taking a leap of faith, Lillie decided to give it a try. “Muffin was sedated, I had the extra hoof cut off, the area medicated with FormaHoof anti-bacterial and then FormaHoof was applied. What a difference it made!!! Muffin was immediately move in comfort and although he still has a long recovery process ahead, he now has a future .” Muffin had now undergone the FormaHoof application process take a look at the videos below to see how he felt!
