 Chances of Success: Using the Vetdrop System (based on actual work results) - Very High

'Die Piephacke' - 'capped hock' is one of the galls that occur in horses. It is an inflammatory process in the bursa of the calcaneus. This leads to swelling due to an increase in fluid in the bursa. 'Dei Piephaxe' usually develops as a result of trauma caused by constantly kicking walls or bumps on the treadmill and hitting the iron bar. But infections can also cause this problem. Often times it's just a blemish and the horse isn't lame. When lameness occurs, it is usually not severe. Symptoms improve with exercise and treatment with vetdrop. However, galls tend to become chronic in general, so treatment should be given in any case. In this case, Vetdrop can be used to great effect.

If the galls are caused by trauma, it is important to investigate the cause and find a way to get rid of it, otherwise the pecker will form again. Vetdrop will bring relief, but every time the horse is hit on the spot, the swelling will come back.

If an infection is present, antibiotics may need to be given in addition to treatment with vetdrop. If symptoms persist even under therapy, a surgical solution may be successful. Of course, if 'the pickaxe' is surgically removed, the wound can be treated well with vetdrop.
