DR.J :

Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question

DR.J :

there have several studies into the dermal disease and it was found that a once a week used of antiseptic solution would be even better the the use of antibiotic as well as would not have the same effect when regarding withdrawal periods

DR.J :

There are several antiseptic you can use , though you must as well consider environment effect such as earth and water contamination

DR.J :

copper sulfate is one of the agents but again contamination should be considered if used on a large group of cows. another product which has been used on horses as well is called Kevin bacon hoof solution - http://www.kevinbacons.com/en/solution.html

DR.J :

You can get it in the uk .

DR.J :

Usually used once a week at first for at least a month and then reduced to once every other week for another month .

DR.J :

is important to provide a dry grounds well , otherwise you might be contaminating other members of the herd as well as causing a relapse in patient zero .

DR.J :

I hope this helps . let me know if you need my help further.

DR.J :

All the best.
