Vet Diagnosed a Poor Chance of Recovery - Queensland, Australia 2017
Before: Near-Fore, showing brittle hoof wall, flaring, cracks / stress fractures of the hoof wall. Collapsed soles.
Before: Hind hooves showing brittle, distorted hoof walls, cracks & flaring, collapsed heels.
After: 3rd shoeing, Flares removed & near-fore cracks growing out. Consistently sound since the first Cytek shoeing.

Phantom just after his 3rd shoeing (18 weeks since first shoeing). A relaxed, square stace from a much happier horse whose lameness was a thing of the past as soon as the first shoes were put on.

Lame for 6 Months
Animal Health Trust, England
Different shoes had been tried to remedy the 6 out of 10 score for lameness throughout 6 months.
