Summary and Implications

A survey inquiring about treatment approaches for claw horn lesion in dairy cattle was available to veterinarians and hoof trimmers who were members of either the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) or the Hoof Trimmers Association (HTA) during the winter of 2013. The study showed differences among AABP and HTA members with regards to procedural training and technique as well as treatment approach. No differences were noted when evaluating the use of topical medications along with bandaging materials, but details regarding the types of topical medications used did reveal discrepancies among the AABP and HTA members.
