Equine foot lameness is a prevalent condition, with high welfare and economic impacts. As the most common cause for equine euthanasia, foot pathologies associated with the lamellae, termed ‘laminitis’, are of particular concern. Taking a novel, interdisciplinary approach, micro-computed tomography was utilised to investigate the full extent of the equine foot in order to gain insight on its structures in a normal state and information on the pathological changes associated with laminitis-like lesions.
