What does foot rot look like in cattle? can it occur on the back of the foot rather than between the two claws in the front? i have two cows limping badly, one has the back of her foot just above the hoof at the hairline swollen-she holds her foot up when not walking. the other has the same problem with more swelling, extending a little higher and the area is reddened, initially i thought it was a snakebite. we dont usually have any foot problems but it has been unusually wet htis year. 2 out of 400 at the same time with swelling in the same place seems kind of suspicious..
