Canker (hypertrophic pododermatitis) is an overgrowth of hoof horn tissue on the bottom surface of the horse’s foot. This abnormal production of keratin--which resembles soggy cauliflower and may have a cottage cheese-like discharge--usually begins in the frog but may spread to the sole, bars, and even the weight-bearing portion of the hoof wall.

  A three-quarter-bar shoe may be of value in relieving pressure. If the corn is suppurating, it should be drained immediately by a surgical opening directly through the sole. After drainage, the foot should be dressed to permit drainage. Hot foot baths and poultices may be helpful. The horse should be kept in a dry, clean box stall.   Equine Canker.
