hoof testers

hoof testers

A set of pincers with wide opening jaws and slightly serrated faces. Local pressure is applied on the hoof by closing the pincers with one jaw on the sole/frog and the other on the hoof wall. The hoof testers are moved systematically  around the hoof wall and sole to check for a pain response to pressure. A positive pain response (the horse abruptly pulls away the hoof) indicates the presence of inflammation.
