Have tried antibiotic but does not help. All cows have either recently had calves or are due shortly. No apparent sign of swelling or foot rot. Vet checked one of the cows two weeks ago. Said it looked neurological not Fescue Foot. Gave a steroid shot. Cow has been in lot off fescue one month. No change.

Hello & welcome. I do apologize that my colleagues could not assist you while I was away. I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has she had signs?

Any history of trauma, slips, or falls?

Any sores, wounds, or changes with these feet?

Does she seem stiff? Is she worse when she first starts moving?

Did the vet check her and treat her with steroid? Any changes with that?
