From Joseph Santos.


This Keratoma removal is on a donkey. This was Definitely the smallest foot I’ve ever resected. I chose a Glushu size 9.5 which you’ll see is equivalent to a 4x0. You’ll see in these images it’s a very small shoe.

I chose this shoe for a no impact application. Also, being that if you resection size changes, the shoe cuff is easily removable for a larger resection window.

I added soft impression material for hoof capsule stability. I also applied a hospital treatment plate for extra protection. I always support my foot before any type of resection’s.

Using this style cuff Glushu shoe is really easy and very durable. Importantly, these feet can be soaked, and the resection can be cleaned multiple times throughout the rotation without the integrity of the foot being lost.
