Carpal Valgosity in Foals
A three-week-old Arabian female foal and a three-week-old Silesian male foal were diagnosed with carpal valgosity confirmed by radiographic evaluation. In both cases, the wire bridge method was used for treatment. After the operation, mobility restriction was recommended. Even though the foals differed significantly in weight, the outcome was good. This confirms that the wire bridge method is an effective method of treating carpal valgosity and leads to fast recovery (within 3-4 weeks).
