VetWatch: Navicular Disease

With over 60% of forelimb lameness in first opinion practices stemming from the foot there are multiple potential causes that need to be considered. Navicular disease, or syndrome as it is now known, describes chronic forelimb lameness associated with palmar (back of the foot) or deep foot pain arising from the navicular bone and its surrounding structures.

In this edition Laura Tollit BVSc MRCVS from Isle Veterinary Group discusses the causes, diagnosis and treatment of this disease.
