Case example

White line fissure and double sole

A routine check of the animals’ health can reveal surprising things. At the end of 2022, we spent a day with a hoof trimmer to take thermal images of 30 cows. Surprisingly, only 33% of the examined animals were healthy. The most common problems were double soles, white line fissures and sole ulcers.

In the case above, thermal imaging showed clear half-differences between both the front and back legs. In a more detailed examination, white line fissures were found in the right rear hoof and the left front hoof. The right hind hoof also had a double sole.
