Last week a nice woman asked if I would come out a trim her goat's hooves. One spanish/boer doe she was worried about in particular. This doe got into a mess of alfalfa hay and a ton of sheep grain feed about 3 weeks ago. When I went to trim her hooves she had been walking on her knees and had the 'platform heels' characteristic of founder. I gave her a very close trim and said that I would come out again this week to trim her. We couldn't catch her yesterday (she remembers me :laugh: ) but I could see that her condition has not changed much. The woman told me that the day after I trimmed her she looked better, but every subsequent day she has shown no improvement (walking on her knees, limping, etc.). At this point I told her to call a vet to see how much damage the founder has caused to the bones of the fore hooves (the rear hooves appear normal and don't seem to bother her). I assume that the vet will say regular hoof trimming will be the most helpful, but does anyone here have any experience treating foundered goats?
