Nanric Ultimate

Nanric Ultimate

Note: Do not apply Nanric Ultimate if palmar angle is greater than 5 degrees.

Providing this device as an emergency aid can greatly reduce or prevent displacement (rotation and/or collapse) of the coffin bone. Extensive venography studies have shown a direct relationship between DDF laxity and improved circulation to the laminae and corium of the sole. Improving blood flow to compromised feet is the first step to improving the healing environment. Time is always running out. For best results, always treat acute laminitis as an emergency, regardless of how quickly the horse responds to medication.

Evaluation at onset should include initial radiographs and venograms. Further x-rays and venograms should be used to monitor initial progress or disease progression for the first 30-45 days. Augment mechanics when damage and/or disease chronicity exceeds the limits of the emergency device. A DDF tenotomy with derotation shoeing is indicated when the vascular pattern continues in a downward spiral. Comparable venograms can provide invaluable information. Note: The venography procedure is technique sensitive and accurate interpretation requires a good working knowledge of healthy and pathological ranges.

DDF tension reduction should be considered once sole growth is steadily increasing, the horse is healthy, anti-inflammatory medication has not been required for several days or weeks, and there is no there is no noticeable increase in digital pulse. Do not be in a hurry to reduce the mechanics.

New and improved features:
  • One-piece cuff and base wedge designed to provide a hassle-free weaning process.
  • Efficient mechanical whip that can be further improved if necessary with a grater or grinder. Simply rasp the break further if necessary to soften the DDF.
  • Solid and thick base once the bottom cushion is removed.
  • The second pad provides a volar angle of approximately 18 degrees (PA), very similar to the original Modified Ultimate. To remove a pad, simply remove the four screws that secure it.
Application possibilities:
  1. Bandage when necessary to closely monitor the case with X-rays and venograms for the first 30-45 days after onset.
  2. Paste for small scale damage cases. If x-rays taken every two weeks show a single growth, the Ultimate offers sufficient mechanics.
