Focus on digitial dermatitis

Digital Dermatitis


I hope everyone is enjoying some long-needed relief from the hot weather and hopefully the tentative re-appearance of green pastures! In this newsletter, I will be returning to digital dermatitis as a topic of focus. This is a condition that many of you will be familiar with, however with an estimated cost of around £99 per cow and as well as the other implications of lameness on farm, it is well worth a re-visit.

With housing season approaching DD is a condition that is likely to rear its head after a hot dry spell and it would seem an apt time to revisit the mainstay of DD management. 


Digital dermatitis lesions are best identified on visual examination which relies on picking up a foot and visually inspecting the interdigital space for a lesion.
