Dorsal metacarpal disease in Thoroughbred horses: relationship to the development of the third metacarpal



Dorsal metacarpal disease in Thoroughbred horses: relationship to the development of the third metacarpal



Dissertation Abstracts International, B Sciences and Engineering 48(11): 3221



Of 48 two-year-old Thoroughbred horses in race training, 65% of the horses and 91% of those in uninterrupted training developed clinical signs of acute metacarpal disease over a 6 week period. Dorsal metacarpal disease was associated with an increase in the level of exercise. Most horses were affected bilaterally. In a retrospective radiographic study of 165 third metacarpal bones of 123 Thoroughbred horses, periosteal bony proliferation was seen in 98% of the metacarpi.
