The Sanctuary Equine Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation Center of Ocala, Fla., has joined forces with the Rood & Riddle Podiatry Center to offer Sanctuary clients the optimum in foot care by opening a Rood & Riddle Podiatry Center at The Sanctuary. The new partnership will kick off with a free Foot and Lameness Symposium at The Sanctuary on March 27 from 6 to 9 p.m., led by Rood & Riddle veterinarians and open to the public.

"Rood & Riddle is one of the largest and most prestigious veterinary hospitals in the world. Dr. Morrison is a leader in equine podiatry and we are very excited to offer our clients a Rood & Riddle Podiatry Center at The Sanctuary," said Brenda McDuffee, general manager of The Sanctuary. "Rood & Riddle veterinarians will be coming to The Sanctuary several times a month and we will be able to provide around the clock care to the podiatry patients that are receiving vet services from the Rood & Riddle vets. The staff at The Sanctuary will also keep the vets informed about how the horses are doing on a daily basis."

The Rood & Riddle Podiatry Team uses advanced diagnostics, combined vet/farrier skills, and years of experience in treating thousands of cases for conditions such as laminitis, chronic heel pain, hoof capsule distortion, foot/hoof infection, hoof cracks, coffin bone and navicular bone fractures, club feet, angular limb deformities in foals, foot care management, and consultation.
