Introduction
I am a veterinarian in Denver, CO where I have a clinical practice focusing on chiropractic, acupuncture, and rehab for horses and dogs. I teach acupuncture to veterinarians, and conduct research on the equine foot. Before veterinary school I worked as a farrier. My fascination with the equine foot is a central clinical and academic focus in my work. I have been collaborating with Dr. Bob Bowker and colleagues at the Equine Foot Lab at Michigan State University since 2002.

Multimodal treatment for chronic laminitis in horses Part I: Sensory receptors in the equine distal limb Understanding sensory reception in the equine foot can help clinicians design effective treatment plans for laminitis pain control and rehabilitation. This talk will include a review of laminitis pathophysiology followed by presentation of ong...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Multimodal Treatment for Chronic Foot Pain in Horses Practitioners agree that successful treatment of chronic equine foot pain requires a multimodal approach. However, there is no agreement on which modalities are the most effective, and there is limited research to guide us on the specifics. This first hour will be an introduction to the concepts...

OBJECTIVE To examine the equine foot for the presence of sensory receptors including Merkel cells and small lamellated Pacinian-like corpuscles (SLPCs). SAMPLE Forefeet obtained from 7 horses following euthanasia for reasons other than foot disease. PROCEDURES Disarticulated feet were cut into either sagittal sections or cross sections and immersed...

Reasons for performing the study: Acupuncture has a long history of clinical use on horses, including treatment of distal limb pathology, but there is limited scientific data to guide point selection or to substantiate proposed mechanisms of action. We studied blood flow parameters in healthy horses as a first step in collecting data about acupunct...
Conference Paper
Density and morphologic features of hoof wall tubules in horses' hooves are described. The sample population consisted of hooves (n=12) from both live and deceased adult horses. Full wall thicknesses of the hoof wall were prepared histologically from sites at the toe, medial quarter and lateral quarter. In defined areas, tubules were counted, and d...

Veterinary acupuncture charts were developed based on the concept of transpositional points whereby human acupuncture maps were adapted to animal anatomy. Transpositional acupuncture points have traditionally been placed in specific locations around the horse's coronet and distal limb believed to be the closest approximation to the human distal lim...

1 2 adjustments, and/or for protective mechanisms. Some of this activity is also sent to the brain for perception. Free nerve endings convey painful sensations while other sensations such as touch, vibration, etc are initially detected by what are called mechanoreceptors before the information is transmitted to the spinal cord. The wealth of sensor...

To quantify the density of primary epidermal laminae (PELs) around the solar circumference and evaluate the relationship between regional PEL density and hoof capsule morphology in horses. Forefeet from nine 3-year-old Quarter Horse cadavers. Data pertaining to gross features of hoof morphology and PEL variables, including number, density, and dist...
