Changes in the coronary band
perimeter could be described using the equation: coronary band
perimeter =19.379971 + 1.114097 x month - 0.1229946 (month -3.74569)2, [R.sup.2]=0.79, P[less than or equal to]0.01.
This virus leads to fever (104p-105p F), vesicles and erosions on snout, mammary glands, coronary band
, and inter-digital areas.
Farms A, B, D, and E had gestating and/or farrowing sows with fluid-filled or ruptured vesicles at the coronary bands
, hooves, or snouts; reproductive disorders were not observed.
Symptoms are more subtle in sheep and goats, but a sudden lameness may be noted, with blisters forming on the coronary band
or in the mouth.
Ulcerated sole, mild pain on palpation on the coronary band
, lameness on movement, separation of white line from the wall, haemorrage on the sole as well as near white line (subsoler), dropped sole or pumiced sole and separation of sole and hoof wall at the white line were the signs recorded under sub-clinical laminitis.
Inflammation at the junction of the skin and the horn of the foot - the coronary band
CODD is identified by the lesions starting on the coronary band
above the hoof, which progresses downward and causes the horn to separate leaving a raw stump.
The news, released in a statement from the stable yesterday, said: 'The problem all stems from a minor injury to the coronary band
[the nail-bed from which the hoof grows] sustained by banging the door of his box the day before winning the Futurity Stakes at The Curragh.
Also in a horse with laminitis you will occasionally feel heat at the top of the hoof in an area known as the coronary band
. When hoof testers (instruments resembling ice tongs) are placed on the hoof, there is a consistent pain response everywhere on the sole.
Growing downward from the coronary band
at a rate of three-eighths of an inch every month, three-quarters of an inch every two months (a normal interval between trims), the hoofwall is able to keep up with the normal wear and tear that your horse subjects it to.
