Surgical preparation for P2

Preparation of the surgical site

Preparation of the surgical site

In preparation for surgery, the hair is removed from the distal limb starting from the hoof wall and extending proximally to the mid-metatarsal/metacarpal region. The periopal and superficial hoof wall are removed with a rasp or another suitable instrument (the author routinely uses a electric sanding tool.)
A waterproof barrier is established to isolate the solar region from the surgically prepared area.
