Shepherd’s Choice™ Management TipIt is possible to clear up footrot in large flocks. It will be difficult and depending on how much rainfall you receive annually, it may be very difficult.
- Separate your flock into affected and clean sheep. Keep the clean sheep free and work on the affected sheep. The best antibiotic to use is Zactran® given at labeled doses. Do not use “similar” antibiotics. It is expensive but will clear the infection.
- Trim the hooves on infected sheep. The infection is caused by two bacteria that are anaerobic, so trim the feet aggressively. If you are not hitting blood on 1 out of 3 feet you are not going deep enough.
- Periodic use of a formaldehyde foot bath (1 to 19 dilution) will help eliminate early infections and carriers. Use diluted solution in a walk-through foot bath every 4–6 weeks.

Nothing works on feet as quick as this does!

Worked amazingly well on two foot rot cases I really didn’t think would get better!

I have been searching for an better way to treat my entire sheep flock for minor foot abrasions that always seem to happen in September due to heavy dew in the cooler mornings, tougher blades of grass and warm afternoons. I have tried so many different treatments that haven’t worked! A fellow shepherd suggested walking the ewes through a formaldehyde solution foot bath. No soaking! Just walk them through it. Wow it worked! I have walked my ewes through the bath 1x per day for three days and noticed visible improvement. Reasonable cost for an effective treatment process!

We bought this to use in a walk through foot bath. We were pleased with the results. In a 2 week time frame, we experienced an out break of foot scald in 75% of our lamb crop out of 200 ewes. We penned the sheep at night and walked them through the foot bath for 5 mornings as they left to go to pasture. We waited 3 days and then gave a shot of LA 200 to anything that was still limping. I believe the few that were still limping were the first cases and it had progressed to separation of the hoof wall. I believe if we had walked the sheep through the foot bath at the first sign of lameness, we could have prevented such an outbreak from happening. We had experienced a very wet winter and spring. We plan on using the footbaths and this solution as preventative next spring.
