Treating White Line Disease Malva's hooves

Beginning Stages: Identifying and Addressing the Issue

When Malva, a draught mare, was introduced to FormaHoof Certified Applicator and Expert Aletia, she was grappling with a severe case of white line disease, subsequent to an episode of laminitis. With prominent hoof cracks and a visible struggle with mobility, the case was urgent and necessitated strategic intervention.

Swift and Strategic Response

In partnership with veterinarians, the team orchestrated a response:

Stage 1: Comprehensive evaluation and assessment of the hoof
Stage 2: Thorough resection and cleaning of affected areas
Stage 3: Targeted application of FormaHoof across several cycles

Role of FormaHoof: An Immediate Solace

The application of FormaHoof, post-resection and after ensuring cleanliness via copper sulphate and antibacterial spray, was pivotal. Remarkably, Malva experienced an immediate elevation in comfort, which not only facilitated turnout during recovery but also sustained her soundness through the treatment period.

Aletia conveyed the gravity of Malva’s condition at the outset, acknowledging the critical role of FormaHoof in providing both structural support and a sterile environment, conducive to robust hoof regrowth. After several applications, Malva transitioned back to a barefoot state, now thriving, comfortable, and living her best life.

Deepening the Understanding of White Line Disease

White Line Disease, alternatively termed seedy toe or onychomycosis, inflicts damage through bacteria or fungi, which erode the hoof-wall tissue. When unchecked, this condition progressively undermines the entire inner hoof wall, inducing a range of issues including lameness.

White Line Disease Affected Area

Distinct from Thrush: Making Accurate Diagnoses

It’s vital to differentiate white line disease from thrush, which affects the frog and potentially the heels, and is signified by a distinctive unpleasant odor and dark discharge.

Root Causes: A Closer Look

Precursors to white line disease encompass mechanical stress (resulting from overgrown feet), persistently damp environments, pre-existing cracks, and chronic abscesses or laminitis, which collectively debilitate the white line.

Identifying and Responding to White Line Disease

Recognition may arise from visual cues like fissures, auditory signs such as a hollow sound upon tapping the hoof, or physical symptoms, although lameness is not always immediately apparent.

Navigating Through Treatment

Comprehensive treatment often involves a hoof-wall resection, ensuring a thorough removal of infected material. Subsequent management may involve corrective horseshoeing and, in extensive cases, a temporary pause in training. Maintaining a clean and dry environment is paramount for facilitating healthy regrowth and preventing recurrence.
