Therapeutic Farrier Services

Farrier services at the Equine Medical Center are headed by Goodness Farrier Associates, LLC, a group farrier practice known for producing exceptional results with difficult therapeutic cases and managing high-level performance horses with podiatry issues.

The team members focus on sport horse and therapeutic shoeing, and their philosophy is to share innovative ideas and promote best practices in foot care for horses. Owners and referring veterinarians can feel confident that the farriery team at the Equine Medical Center will help get their horses back on the right track.

The farrier clinic 

Fully equipped with holding stalls and all-weather work areas, the farrier clinic is completely integrated with the center's other services, including surgery, internal medicine, and imaging, which ensures that your horse receives real-time, state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatments. We promote close collaboration among referring veterinarians, our farriers, and our veterinarians to assess and treat horses with challenging hoof and limb injuries, as well as lameness issues.
