I've never heard of blocks for goats. One of my does tends to have issues with the hoof wall separating due to her previous owners not trimming hooves. When its separated I just trim off all the loose wall. How much of the wall is separated?
When looking at the picture, you're talking about the right side of the cutout, right? I'll take a look at that today and see about snipping it off.I would trim off that flap of loose horn. It needs to be trimmed back to the spot where it rejoins with the hoof.
Would that be better than the Epsom salt/water mix? I used the spray iodine after I soaked it in the Epsom. She's been walking about the same to a little better.I agree ☝
You can dip it in iodine/ water solution, it dries it quicker and treats any rot.
Do it daily for a little while.
Yes. It's hard to tell from the picture just how much is loose but it looks like a good sized amount that needs to come off.When looking at the picture, you're talking about the right side of the cutout, right? I'll take a look at that today and see about snipping it off.
Put some Kopertox on it, then vetwrap it. It will only last a day or two. Keep checking it, and keep wrapping it until it gets stronger.
I got a foot recipe from someone on here just last week or so. They listed what to use and how good it works that I went out and bought it to put in my pharmacy at the house. Mix DSMO, Kopertox and LA 200 in equal amount and apply twice a day for 3-4 days. They guaranteed it to work for foot rot and other foot problems. I tried to find the link but my phone is out of memory and I can’t search right now. Maybe I should put some os this mixture all over my phone. Lol He said to put it in a squirt bottle and spray it. I’m thinking maybe a cheap paint brush and mop it on. Just food for thought. Tractor Supply had it all.Yes.
