Disease Process in Animals: Foot Rot in Cattle

  1. 1. Disease Process in Animals foot rot in cattle b.stev
  2. 2. <ul><li>THIS is due to SUSCEPTIBILTY from : </li></ul><ul><li>Trauma from the environment </li></ul><ul><li>Excessive moisture to the skin </li></ul><ul><li>Irritants (sprays/ foilage/ clothing) </li></ul><ul><li>Bites (insect/ predator) </li></ul><ul><li>The dimensions of the animal </li></ul><ul><li>Exposure of the feet to contaminants </li></ul>MICROBES grow infection (Hirsh .D. C, MacLachlan .N. J & Walker .R.L, 2004)
  3. 3. what is FOOT ROT ? ACUTE inflammation: skin & tissue > inter-digital cleft LESION often accompanies this CATTLE in muddy areas are especially prone: dairy/ beef
  4. 4. usually: 1 - 2 cattle at a time: though, OUT-BREAKS to certain situations occur due to conditions& work of the animal/s <ul><li>Infection is from microbes: </li></ul><ul><li>Fusobacterium necrophorum </li></ul><ul><li>Bacteroides melaninogenicus </li></ul>CAUSES: muddy/ poorly drained pens OR pastures (University of Florida, 2008)
  5. 5. WHAT HAPPENS? WET ground , faeces , mud softens the skin - microbes then enter through small abrasions ie: a stone bruise/ thorn/ wood/ frozen faeces
  6. 6. occurs : HIND feet most often PROMPT diagnosis saves time/ money & the loss of production from the animal SIGNS: raises the foot - reluctance to move loss of appetite, weight/ impaired gait (University of Florida, 2008)
  7. 7. animal/s are cleaned for inspection – the VET needs to ensure it is foot rot LARGE HERDS: feed additive, a control measure ALSO: - chlortetracycline - oxytetracycline ANTIMICROBIAL THERAPY ie: antibiotic given 3 - 5 days TREATMENT: Vetinerary Inspection is required (Cattle Today Inc, 2008)
  8. 8. WITH severe foot rot : removal of a CLAW may by necessary RECOVERY : animal has a single claw NEGLECT to the animal would cause a significant cost in treatment & loss of economic production from the animal
  9. 9. <ul><li>the trimming of claws </li></ul><ul><li>footbath with : </li></ul>PREVENTION: <ul><li>ground is maintained: </li></ul>(Cattle Today Inc, 2008) <ul><li>mudholes filled </li></ul><ul><li>pools drained </li></ul><ul><li>areas fenced </li></ul><ul><li>drains set in </li></ul><ul><li>copper sulphate </li></ul><ul><li>zinc sulphate </li></ul>
