Anyone every had any experience with their horses having a kertoma mass?
My Belgian has been having abcesses, so called the vet they took xrays said its a kertoma mass and needs to be removed.
Of course my first question was how in the world are you gona do that.
As it was explained to me, they will put shoes on him (he's barefoot now) then proceed to remove 4-5 inches of his hoof for the band to the ground and remove the mass. Kind of like removing a fingernail. I've removed a fingernail before not meaning to, and I didn't like it at ALL, & my hand doesn't hold up my body weight.
So I'm not sure Im liking their plans, and another person told me that it rarely is all gotten, so it will come back. So Im not really wanting to put my boy & me though the pain and suffering and the $$ if its not going to be successful.
Need some words of wisdom here, please.
