Dr. Redden's International
Consultation Service
Starting at $500

Requirements for Foot Issue Consultations

The attending veterinarian normally requests a consultation. Owners and their farrier may also request a consultation but must provide notice and request from the attending veterinarian when that has been established.  Contact information (cell phone, office, and email) must be provided for all concerned. The requesting party will be responsible for paying the consultation fee unless otherwise stated. Contact information and approval of the responsible party must be provided.

Each professional can provide their perspective view and describe the current as well as past pertinent history relative to their individual exam and treatment. This along with the requested information adds strength to the discovery information enhancing the value of the recommendations.

Required Data

  • History

  • Current status. (Within a few days preferably, no more than 24 to 48 hours for acute laminitis.)

  • Photos of the feet or foot of concern taken with lens perpendicular to each side the heel, the sole, when possible and front of the hoof. See example below.







  • Radiographs  - Podiatry focused views, low beam lateral, DP, and other pertinent views relative to the issue.

  • Current and comparative venograms when indicated.

  • Videos tailored to the degree of lameness. Mild lameness may require a turn or trot.  For moderate 2/5 scale do not trot if lameness is detected walking.  For high scale 3/5 or higher walk only a couple steps and then touch each leg to pick up each foot. The body language, head, and eye expression should be revealed. Do not hold the foot up if the horse is reluctant.

The initial consultation is $500 and includes review of requested information and phone contact with the veterinarian, farrier, and owner when applicable. A written report of findings and recommendations is emailed to all parties of concern.

Ongoing cases that continue to have concerns may require additional information, multiple phone calls, photos, videos, emails, and texts. A running time log records the commitment to the case and is charged at a rate of $500/hour. Therefore, to save precious time and expense the more compact and complete the information provided, the more economical and feasible the consultation procedure becomes.
