Histological study of the hoof development in sheep

Journal of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Tehran 53(1/2): 92-96

Histological study of the hoof development in sheep

The hoof development was studied in 16 healthy sheep embryos collected from an abattoir in Iran. Histological and microscopical examinations revealed that the hoof is covered with the skin in early stages of development. The primary changes occurred in the stratum germinativum of the hoof, which caused formation of the tunica interna of the wall and the papillary layer of the sole and heel.
