Hoof Casting tape
Hoof casting tape is a unique casting material designed with specific properties for application on the horses hoof. It’s unlike orthopedic casting in that hoof casting tape has a much higher resin content, which accommodates for wear resistance.Hoof casting tape also has a special weave pattern which allows for malleability of the casting material to the hoof.
Hoof casting tape’s wrapping method and substrate material supports the site of failure to the hoof as well as the result of wall failures like,white line disease, flares, and thin soles.
How can casting address both the cause and resultof hoof wall problems?
Casting creates a banding effect as well as adding vertical integrity to the whole hoof capsule. Hoof casting tape’s substrate design and wrapping process adds vertical integrity and lateral stability to the whole hoof capsule, which assists in a sustainable and dynamic support structure.
The added lateral stability and vertical integrity helps reduce excessive stress on the laminae at the most distal aspect of the hoof capsule.This dynamic stabilization wrapping process increases vertical integrity and lateral stability to the whole hoof (walls, sole, and frog) for better
sole depth, better integrity, and concavity, which will help in establishing better palmar angles for proper biomechanics.
