Split hoof/ foot
« on: December 28, 2021, 08:44:50 pm »
1 of my 2 year old ewes hoof claw has split and spread quite badly, she’s not limping or lame on it moment but has had a few problems previously.
The split is horizontal just below the fur on leg ???
Any suggestions as to the best cause of treatment thanks

Leave it alone if she’s not lame. If she goes lame then bacteria has probably got in so a spray of blue spray and jab of antibiotic and anti inflammatory from the vet.
