I cut back as much of the hoof as I could so debris couldn't get trapped anymore. So now I'm wondering what I can use to treat it with. I'd rather use something topical because she's pregnant. When I cleaned the hoof out it had a bad smell like an abcess but it wasn't wet inside. The inside had white powdery stuff in it, like dry hoof. It doesn't seem to bother her at all. She doesn't limp and runs around just like the other goats. The one thing I did notice was that her hooves are really hard compared to my other goats. I also read that Foot Rot is linked to Copper deficiency which she is lacking. So any thoughts on that would be appreciated. I'd like to say that we got Pepper from someone who owned her for only 2 months and they got her from someone who had owned her for 4 years. In the 4 years that the previous owners owned her they never trimmed her hooves, NOT ONCE! I saw pictures of her hooves before they were trimmed they were horrendous. This is the best picture I could get with my phone.
