Hands-on Radiographs for the Hoof Care Practitioner

This clinic fulfills the reading radiograph requirement for PHCP students.

This hands-on clinic will get you comfortable assessing basic parameters in a radiograph such as toe length, sole thickness, position of the coffin bone, and balance. Dr. Williges will also focus on common diagnostic findings in the feet such as founder, side bone, ringbone, and more.

Observe the process of marking the hoof and setting up the horse and equipment for quality radiographs. This clinic will prepare you as a practitioner to communicate with veterinarians and horse owners, and work together to provide the best hoof care for your clients.

You can purchase a lunch, to be provided at the clinic, for $10 per day or bring your own. This selection can be made when you register.
