Rigert, S; Geyer, H; Kummer, M (2009). Die chirurgische Behandlung von Strahlkrebs an allen vier Gliedmassen bei einem Warmblutwallach. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 151(4):171-176.

Abstract

The following case report describes the treatment of canker in a 14 years old warmblood gelding. The horse showed the typical appearance with caseous surface and early detachment of the superficial horn layers. The histological results show a severe degradation in the germinal layer of the epidermis of the frog. Surgical therapy under general anaesthesia was performed. On all limbs a tourniquet was applied and all abnormal tissue in the region of the frog and also the subdermal tissue underneath were removed. Postoperatively the horse was treated with hoof bandages for 2 weeks. Treatment plates were than applied on all hoofs. During the following weeks the wounds were topically treated with Giessner Mischung 2 an astringent, desinfectant powder. The powder contains jodophorm, zincoxyde, tanninic acid, metronidazole. After 5 months the frog showed a complete cover with strong horn material and without any signs of recrudescence
