- After the veterinary acute accent treatment of a shot; the horses who often incline to shots mostly have a lymphatic run-off disturbance.

- With Mauke with concurrent antibiotic gift, it a metabolism improvement should be reached.

- With roe deer: the lymphatic run-off is increased, this leads in the horn- rimmed shoe to the discharge, there increases liquid from the hoof is taken away.

- With tendon problems / ruptures: during the frst 6-10 days the increased egg white aggregation can be taken away by the lymphatic drainage

How runs a manual lymphatic drainage off?

The real manual lymphatic drainage lasts approx. 40 minutes. The whole therapy occurs in three "phases":

- Phase I: The manual lymphatic drainage which must occur strictly systematically to free all drain ways, so that a kind of suction originates. This treatment lasts approx. 40 minutes.

- Phase II: Compression: Because by the lymphatic buildup the skin loses to elasticity, a compression must occur after the manual lymphatic drainage. A column federation or a compression sock can be used for it.

- Phase III: Movement: on putting on the compression sock or compression federation movement must occur. Leading, pasture way, to lunge as well as horse riding in all three basic paces are suitable in addition.

In addition, enough rough feed should be offered after the treatment, so that also the digestive system remains in movement. The natural, central lymphatic run-off is promoted by the continuous intestinal movement.
