  • Any oral antibiotics for this or is local wound care all that is needed?

    Pop CornPop CornVor Tag
    • Abscesses generally don’t need antibiotics unless the infection has moved higher.

  • Shouldn't the black thing go on the side of the hoof with the big gapping hole?

    Jim JoyceJim JoyceVor Tag
    • No. The block is to take pressure off the sore claw by focusing the weight on the good claw.

  • My question is why wouldn't you quickly wash the hoof off before draining the abscess? All that dirt and manure is right there.

    Viking445Viking445Vor 4 Tage
    • You couldn’t really get it disinfected properly by just washing it and usually the bacteria is what has caused the abscess to form in the first place. Once it’s opened up you can clean it out much better than you can before you work on it.

    Justice KilgoreJustice KilgoreVor 6 Tage
    • If it’s no longer attached to the sole. As new hoof is produced it’s actually softer but as it keratinizes it becomes hard.

  • I'm new to this channel so I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered before; I looked but couldn't find anyone asking it. Does the block not make walking uncomfortable for the cow? If I had a shoe with a sole that was three inches thicker on the left side than the right, it would take some major core strength to keep my balance all day

    GrovaGrovaVor 15 Tage
    • They walk quite well with them. Much more comfortable than walking on a lesion and the block is only 5/8 inch thick.

  • AWESOME video !! You took your time so the final nick of the knife that allowed the pus to squirt out was totally awesome!!!! Great job ! The cows are so fortunately to have you remove no flesh more than required (which can only be accomplished by taking your time & doing precision cuts as opposed to slashing & hacking)

    Anthony AppleyardAnthony AppleyardVor 19 Tage
    • Abscesses on both claws are very rare. Ulcers on both claws happens on occasion and in that case I wouldn’t block but just wrap and move the cow to a small heavily bedded pen until it can heal.

Great job by the way!!

    • @Nate the Hoof Guy Thanks

      Esteban JiménezEsteban JiménezVor 18 Tage
    • Salicylic acid is the powder. Block usually stay on 4-6 weeks. Can’t give NSAIDs to dairy cows in US but she did get pain medicine.

      Nate the Hoof GuyNate the Hoof GuyVor 19 Tage
  • love the close up shot it brings everything together so i can see what you are seeing. sometimes on rare occasions I can see the cows pull or struggle a tiny bit i assume this is pain. other times you can see the leg relax and push in to the crush usually when there is pressure being released and I assume the cow is getting some pain relief. most of the time there is no sense that the cow has any sensation at all and they look pretty comfy dangling their hoofs and resting in to the belly band.
