Hoof Disorders
Foot care and claw trimming require proper systems for restraint, sharp knives and trimming equipment, and an understanding of the biomechanics of weight bearing and hoof overgrowth in cattle.

The objective of functional claw trimming is to correct hoof overgrowth, thereby re-establishing appropriate weight bearing within and between the claws of each foot. Traditional trimming methods fail to achieve these objectives. Corrective trimming procedures are applied to horn lesions affecting the claw capsule.

Primary objectives of corrective trimming are to adjust weight bearing to provide rest for diseased claws and to remove loose horn and hard ridges that may cause further injury to the corium. The application of a foot block to the healthy claw is a valuable aid in foot care when corrective trimming alone is insufficient to provide needed relief from weight bearing.

Finally, the use of topical treatments under Claw Wrap Bandage is controversial. It is recommended that caustic treatments be avoided and that the use of a bandage be limited to conditions requiring hemostasis or when operators are committed to their removal within a period of 2 to 5 days depending on the level of environmental contamination.
