Pig with a poorly foot. Warning, a bit gruesome.

We put Gladys out in the field today to give her a bit of a rest from the piglets. Karen noticed that one of them was limping. We picked it up and found this.









I couldn't relieve any pressure from the infected foot, so we scrubbed it with Hibiscrub and gave it some of the blue spray for good measure. We also gave her a jab of one Mil of Pen and Strep. Fingers crossed that she's a bit better tomorrow. Anyway, we'll treat her again.

fingers crossed. if the swelling and heat is still present tomorrow maybe time to think about a shot of metacam between the pen and strep and that it should soon be sorted.

looks like the sow could have stood on its foot.

Sure hope it helps quickly-looks a mite painful.

Good news, and we could do with every little bit today...

I daren't tell you that I've just got back from the vets and that all nine piglets have got a dose of the squits.
