In this episode, you'll hear a discussion that Dr. Doug Butler had with a group of farriers and veterinarians on eight specific foot diseases including abscesses, white line disease, keratoma, canker (and the rare coronitis), quittor, pedal osteitis, osteomyelitis, and low ringbone. These correspond to pictures and additional information that can be found in Chapter 39 of The Principles of Horseshoeing 3 on Diseases of the Horse's Foot.

He discussed the DACCT method of studying and describing foot diseases:

D - stands for definition of the condition

A - stands for anatomy of the structures involved in the condition

C - stands for clinical signs of the condition

C - stands for cause(s) of the condition

T - stands for treatment of the condition, including prognosis

This episode covers several common and several rare foot diseases and what can be done by farriers and veterinarians to help the horse.
