PostSubject: seperated pad from hoof on rear legs on show pig   6th January 2011, 3:14 pm

Hello. We are 21 days out from our show date and our 190lb. plus hog took a running fit in the yard and started to slightly limp and not wanting to put pressure on one hoof. He could still walk and run, but acted uncomfortable. Upon further examintation of his rear hoofs, We noticed that his pad is split way from the hoof on the inside edges on both rear hoofs. I doctored them immediately with neosporin and then with sole paint. We also gave Banamine (sp?) for a couple of days and then Aspirnfre (sp?) now 1x a day. This is our first hog and have heard the horror stories about cracked pads - any advice to get this pig walking great for show would be appreciated. We have a little time and are doctoring with sole paint every other day now and keeping him penned. Thank you.

its really hard to see a good one go down in just little time like the one accident you have, with time and faith everything works out really good. i havent had this happen to use but have had worse experiences and the best part is that you bounce right back strong.
Well you can try to use a hoof dressing and try to keep him in a clean dry place for a couple of days to avoid, damage to his soundness and keep up with the antibiotics for 3days.

The seperations are not that deep, more like cracking along the hoof line. I know that they are tender, but was told that the sole paint would aid in the tenderness and the healing process. Your thoughts? He is housed on concrete and has 2 cusion mats

I've used and keep it on hand Equi Thrush. You can get it at Tractor Supply. Put it on the pigs feet 2-3 times a day, top and underneath. Make sure you have a thickbed of shavings in the pen 4-6" deep. The pig should get better in 7-10 days.
