The Equine Hospital employs the farriers Jaakko ‘Jaska’ Granström and Caroline Kempf, who specialise in medical horseshoeing. The farriers primarily treat patients together with veterinarians, but also offer a few appointments for basic shoeing each week.

Our typical shoeing clients include laminitis patients, lame horses and foals born with foot or limb deformities. The presence of a veterinarian is not necessary for the most common shoeing procedures performed on horses with injured or diseased hoofs. More demanding procedures (e.g., the removal of hoof tumours) can be performed in an operating room under anaesthesia.

Veterinarians and farriers from outside the Equine Hospital can also refer patients to us for an assessment and shoeing.
