hammer testing

hammer testing

This is a form of percussion testing and is part of a thorough lameness examination. The hoof wall is systematically tapped with a synthetic mallet to evaluate a possible pain response, signalised by the (reproducible) pulling away of the limb when a painful area is struck.
