    I have a doe, second freshener, who is sore in both front feet.

    The facts are:
    She has no heat in her feet,
    She has no crusting on her hoofs or pasterns,
    I have sprayed her feet for foot rot but she shows no signs,
    She is a little over condition, but has had no grain during her pregnancy,
    Her feet are appropriately trimmed and of correct length,
    I gave her bute one day which did not seem to help her feet,
    She eats well when I put out alfalfa pellets,
    Of the 20 other goats in the barn she is the only one with this problem

    Any suggestions?

    Jolene,
    What symptoms does she have? Does she put weight on them? Does she move around on her knees? anyting more about why they might be sore.
