Dr. Mike Steward's Wooden Shoes are used to treat many hoof problems from founder, laminitis, white line disease, broken coffin bones, long toe low heel syndrome, or just to develop a better hoof. We encourage a walking rehabilitation program with these shoes on to enhance circulation, which helps to grow a proper hoof. Like with all our line of shoes the method to attach is the same.
Select the right size shoe then place the hoof onto the shoe attach with glue, Elastickon, or screws while the horse is standing on the shoe. We have had the best luck with this method (screws). Once the shoe has been attached to the hoof it is now time for the DIM on the back for the hoof from the widest part of the hoof to the widest part of the hoof stretch wrap the DIM let cure for about 5 minutes then remove the stretch wrap and cast with Equicast.
