    I recently purchased Davis sheep/goat boots to protect my goat's feet while treating for hoof rot. Is this safe to do in the winter months with a packed dressing?

    I ran out of Dr. Naylor Hoof n' Heal and today I went to tractor supply and I think I got the wrong thing. I got Manna Pro Hoof + Heal which name is stupidly close, but It seems to do the opposite thing. Am I correct in assuming that this will not work? If it won't work, is there anything I...

    Trudie, our Katahdin lamb, has what we think is foot scald. She has been limping for a few days, no swollen joints, no visible injuries and no hot feeling anywhere. Last night we were finally able to find something between her toes. It seemed there was a little bit of drainage and a dead, rotten...

    I was trimming one of my Nigerian dwarfs hooves and noticed an indentation in one of his soles. It doesn't look bad but I'm still curious about what it could be? The ground is pretty muddy in their pen, but they have plenty of spaces to climb and get off the ground.

    Hello there, We've been trimming our goat hooves this past week and we found some hoof rot. I've read that a zinc sulfate dip would help them, and would honestly be easier than applying some kind of spray twice a day to 15 goats. However, I can't seem to find any specific dips or treatments...

    I have a Nigerian Dwarf, probably about 4 years old. His hooves grow unusually fast, and I have already trimmed them for the 3rd time this spring. Instead of the dark sole under the hoof I trimmed off, I am seeing the softer white type of material that should be only on his heel. I trimmed at...

    I bought 2 nubian does a couple months ago and they came with terribly overgrown stinky hooves. I have the younger ones back in shape pretty well but the 5 year olds feet are really crumbly appearing. If that makes sense. It also appears like the soft part of her front hooves have separated from...
