The debate over barefoot vs. shoes is not entertained in the HOOFMEDIX philosophy.
Karina encourages treatment plans and protocols that PRESERVE, RESTORE and PREVENT injury to horses.
The efficacy of Karina's program cannot be denied. Proof after proof of horses of all ages from all different disciplines, healed!
How does she do it?
Karina is a naturally gifted horse woman.
She deploys a level of skill that is not conventional but highly effective.
To be a HOOFMEDIX client, it is required you allow Karina to BALANCE your WHOLE horse.
AFTER your horse is healthy you can resume using your regular practitioners as you wish.
Much of horse medicine focuses on one professional working on one part of you horse, another on a different part.
How can this benefit the horse?
Sometimes it is not a problem but in the horses that Karina takes on, it is.
Karina specializes in hooves and teeth.
These are VITAL to your horse's well being.
While dental care is often done within the first few weeks of Karina's care of your horse, the hoof health evolves over several months.
HOOFMEDIX focuses on restoring hoof health by REGROWING the hoof through an 8 - 12 month regrowth and regeneration cycle that is designed to preserve hoof wall integrity and inner corium regeneration of its functional connections resulting in a new, fully connected, functioning hoof and better health.
HOOFMEDIX is NOT a one and done.
It is a method with a mission to heal.
