Equine Podiatry is a combination of the art of farrier / blacksmithing with veterinary medicine. Equine podiatrists are specialists in all conditions of the equine foot and have extensive insight in the evaluation of various conditions of the equine foot. Dr. Metcalf began as a farrier in 2001 and worked his way through his undergraduate and veterinary programs. With the majority of equine lameness involving or extending from the condition of the foot it seemed only fitting to continue to provide podiatry services. We offer podiatry services as a means to more accurately treat your horse’s lameness condition and as a bridge to a working relationship with farriers of the clients choosing. We very much enjoy working with farriers, fellow veterinarians and students and wish to extend the invitation that our truck and shop is always a welcoming place.
