Okay, none of our 15 does have foot rot. All have good, healthy feet. We have a closed herd. Until...... We got a buck kid at less than 24 hours old in Sept. I decided to trim his hooves for the first time the other day. One front hoof has hoof-rot. I was shocked, tho probably should not have been. I trimmed very close on that tiny hoof, and then bandaged with hoof-n-heel..... After 2 days, removed the bandage...... hoof was red and he was limping. (shrugs. I know the bandage was not too tight....(He had seemed fine, beforehand.) Anyway, I gave him a high dose of antibiotic, in accordance with the Mary Smith book........ and am now using the hoof N heel twice daily. He acts fine. None of our other goats have or have had this.. Did he come with the bacteria? (He was less than 24 hours old when we got him, and so I am convinced he did not catch it here, but possibly picked it up upon birth.) He came from what appeared to be a VERY clean farm..... I know his navel was dipped before he hit the ground.... I am thinking now, that this is just ONE more reason for dipping newborn hooves......... This poor little guy is just 3 months.. and has an infected hoof...... I am doing the hoof_n_ heal, and gave him the big dose of of antibiotics...... any other suggestions would be helpful... *He is now, since this discovery, completely separated from the herd.) Today, he seems good.. no limping or redness, but am still treating with hoof n heel........ any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
