Reading Radiographs for the Hoof Care Practitioner

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.

This clinic fulfills the reading radiograph requirement for PHCP students.

Allison Williges DVM is an equine veterinarian practicing on Long Island.  She graduated from the University of Georgia and completed an equine internship after graduation.  She works on a wide variety of horses, from those actively competing to retirees.
