Rocker Toe Shoe, Frog Support Pads With Impression Material and Copper Sulfate to Kill and Prevent Thrush

Rocker-toe shoes can be made to ease the pain of Navicular syndrome, low ringbone, or underrun heels.   Sometimes backing up a shoe for easier breakover isn't a good idea because the dorsal hoof wall is too thin.  Applying a rocker toe-shoe is a healthier way to move breakover point back without weakening the hoof wall.
