Digital dermatitis - Wikipedia

Digital dermatitis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Control relies on prompt detection, isolation and treatment of affected cattle. Footbaths should be kept as dry as possible and slurry build-up should be avoided. Regular footbaths should be organised, using formalin, copper sulphate or a thymol-based disinfectant.

Be On The Lookout For Digital Dermatitis Prevalence In Beef Herds | Hoof Bath | Scoop.it
By Dörte Döpfer, DVM, MSc., Ph.D., and Arturo Gomez, DVM, MSc, University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine Digital dermatitis (DD), also known as hairy heel warts, is an infectious hoof disease that is highly contagious. When left unchecked, DD can cause painful ulcerations that often lead to lameness.
Thymox's insight:

Production demands and high stocking density increase digital dermatitis prevalence. Prevention and control are needed to keep digital dermatitis in check.

Must dos for July: Watch for cattle foot problems | Hoof Bath | Scoop.it
Summer is the key time to keep an eye out for outbreaks of digital dermatitis, says Jo Speed, DairyCo senior technical extension officer.
Thymox's insight:

Key to prevention is biosecurity, while regular foot-bathing of the whole herd can be the route for control. It’s worth assessing foot-bath location and considering continued use through the grazed period to aid control.

Laboratorie M2 based in Quebec has introduced what it describes as a new safe, low cost and easy-to-use agriculture disinfectant footbath that has been proven to be more or as effective as traditional treatments to prevent and control lameness diseases such as digital dermatitis (DD) in dairy herds.

Thymox's insight:

Made from the plant-based ingredient thymol, Thymox is biodegradable in 14 days. The company says the product is safer for humans, animals and the environment compared to copper sulfate and formalin-based products.

It is the first agricultural disinfectant to receive the UL EcoLogo certification.

Digital dermatitis emerges in beef cattle

Digital dermatitis emerges in beef cattle | Hoof Bath | Scoop.it

Digital dermatitis is a painful foot condition that causes severe lameness in cattle.

This highly contagious disease was first described in Italy in 1974 and has since spread around the world, primarily within dairy cattle.

However, the disease is also becoming an emerging threat in beef cattle.

Thymox's insight:

Foot bath solutions such as copper sulfate, zinc sulfate and formalin control the disease in dairy herds but can be difficult to manage in beef cattle.

 

Producers should consult a veterinarian before starting a treatment program. Foot baths require considerable effort to manage and need to be long enough and deep enough to allow for two dunks for each foot.

 

Hoof trimmers should disinfect their equipment between farms to avoid spreading this highly contagious disease.
